(from Hamann Press
Release) HAMANN HAWK – Precious bird of prey with 636 hp
An engine bursting with power wrapped into an exciting car body
design coloured in Everose Gold. The Southern German specialist for
exclusive automobile refinement, HAMANN Motorsport, turns the wing
door Mercedes SLS AMG into the HAMANN HAWK with new plumage and
significantly sharper talons.
Already in its basis version, the SLS provides a significant engine
output. But the HAMANN engine department puts some additional power
reserves into the V8 engine. The core part of the power enhancement
is the high-performance exhaust system made out of titanium. In
combination with new manifolds, sports catalysts and a sports air
filter, this system also renders the earthy and powerful sound of
the 6.2 litre aggregate. The components are precisely adjusted with
the help of a new engine characteristic map for motor electronics.
With a top performance of 636 hp / 468 kW and a maximum torque of
680 Nm at 4,850 r.p.m, the HAMANN engine exactly meets the wishes of
its sports ambitious clientele. The performance enhanced wing door
automobile provides first class measures. In race start mode, the
two-seater accelerates from 0 to 100 km/h in only 3.6 seconds and
with a top speed of 320 km/h, the HAMANN HAWK also surpasses the
The superior driving performance is matched with a striking
appearance and aerodynamics tested in the wind tunnel. The HAMANN
HAWK front apron replaces the serial bumper and due to its shape it
reduces the uplifting forces at the front axle. Larger air inlets in
connection with a new LED lights unit give the two-seater an even
more dynamic look. In addition, the enlarged air inlets provide
better access for the engine’s increased need for fresh air.
Subsequently, the air is drawn out of new bonnet made of checkered
flag carbon. Striking wing, 60mm on each front side and 70mm on each
rear side, already render an impressive appearance even while the
car has not started moving yet. Side skirts make the two-seater look
additionally lower and more stretched and underline the rims. In
order to perfectly balance out the downforce of the front- and rear
axle, HAMANN gives the SLS a rear wing also made of checkered flag
carbon. The new rear apron with the diffuser enhances the air flow
under the bottom of the car and provides room for four enormous end
pipes each measuring 90 mm in diameter.
In order to perfectly combine comfort and control, HAMANN uses the
single-part, especially light forged wheels “Unique Forged Anodized“
in 21 inches. These are fitted in 9Jx21 with tyres measuring 245/30
ZR 21 at the front and 12.5Jx21 with tyres measuring 345/25 ZR 21 at
the rear axle.
The coilover kit has been especially refined for the HAMANN HAWK.
Equipped with four height-adjustable dampers and four progressively
wound springs, the centre of gravity can be lowered by up to 30
HAMANN entirely redesigns the interior of the SLS and turns it into
a VIP lounge with motorsports characteristics. Most delicate leather
and ultra-suede, applications and embroideries replace the serial
interior. HAMANN additionally adorns the air inlets, door sill
protectors and centre console with checkered flag carbon. Black
anodized aluminium pedals render a comfortable grip. The technical
highlight of the new interior is the new steering wheel which has
been ergonomically redesigned.
