BMW’s trump card in the
two-door sedan segment is the 3 Series coupe. This elegantly
proportioned model lends itself perfectly to accentuating its sporty
appeal by adding new details. HAMANN from Laupheim also shares this
opinion and adorns the 3 Series coupe an aerodynamics kit, power
boosts, new wheel rims and a stylish interior.
Power boosts for petrol engines
HAMANN boosts the power
in this coupe by means of optimized curve maps. In other words, the
electronic power boost is achieved by recalibrating the standard
The six-cylinder petrol
engines 325i and 330i receive a boost of 13 bhp / 10 kW and 17 bhp /
12 kW and in both cases around 25 Nm torque. The top speed goes up
to 250 and 265 km/h respectively (standard: 325i 245 km/h, 330i 250
km/h). In the 330i, the price includes the deactivation of the 250
km/h speed restriction.
Also when it comes to
the diesel models, customers can expect a substantial power boost.
In the 330d, 272 bhp / 200 kW, 259 km/h top speed (standard: 248)
and 600 Nm at 2000 rpm are quite possible. In the top diesel model
335d 313 bhp/230 kW, 272 km/h and a more than generous 630 Nm at
A power boost to around
380 bhp for the 335i is currently in preparation.
By fitting a HAMANN 4-pipe sports rear muffler with four round
tailpipes, the 335i and 335d can make their power public. The 4
stainless steel tailpipes, each 76 mm in diameter, make the rear end
of this coupe look even more attractive.
Various power boosts
Still so young, and
already its first facelift.... HAMANN does not do things by half and
sets to work on the face. The new, sportier-looking HAMANN front
spoiler is designed to be fitted onto the standard bumper. The
visual lowering effect is created by the new side sills, which lend
the side view more character. The vehicle’s back can either be
customized with a HAMANN rear spoiler or a spoiler lip. A truly
effective means of reducing the lift. The same effect is produced by
the HAMANN roof spoiler, which sits on top of the vehicle. The rear
center molding, which incorporates matching cutouts for the
tailpipes, is designed to be used in conjunction with the HAMANN
4-pipe sports rear muffler. Fitting Carbon-Kevlar mirror caps lends
the HAMANN 3 Series coupe a further eye-catching touch.
Wheels from 18 to 20 inch
HAMANN really goes to
town when it comes to the wheels. No fewer than four different
designs and three sizes from 18 to 20 inch make choosing difficult.
The HM2 design, available in an 18 inch version, is a single-piece
light alloy wheel with five spokes in the ‘Silver’ finish and
features an outer rim with an INOX steel lip. The single-piece rim
Anniversary I has a multi-spoke design and is also available in the
‘Silver’ finish and features an outer rim with an INOX steel lip.
HAMANN offers it as an 18, 19 and 20 inch version. The PG3 wheel is
a composite five-spoke wheel in silver with a high-gloss polished
rim flange. Here, customers can choose between the sizes 19 and 20
Needless to say, 20 inch
wheels suit the customized 3 Series coupe best. In this size, HAMANN
offers its “Edition Race” design as its top model. The appearance of
this three-piece, ultra-lightweight, forged rim in a cross-spoke
design and with a black spider is characterized by the 9 main
spokes, each of which branches outwards into 2 further spokes. In
addition to the exciting design, the titanium bolts are a
particularly eye-catching detail. The high-gloss rim flange adds the
finishing touch to the stylish looks.
combinations in 20 inch:
Edition Race: front 8.5 J x 20 / rear 10.0 J x 20 - 235/30 ZR 20 /
285/25 ZR 20
PG3: front and rear 8.5 J x 20 - 235/30 ZR 20
Anniversary I: front and rear 9.0 J x 20 235/30 ZR 20
By fitting a suspension lowering kit, comprising four progressive
suspension struts, HAMANN succeeds in lowering the vehicle’s center
of gravity by 35 mm at the front and by 20 mm at the rear. Even in
vehicles that come with sporty suspension tuning, that’s still
Numerous accessories combine to make sitting inside the HAMANN 3
Series coupe all the more pleasurable. Thanks to the three-spoke
HAMANN airbag sports steering wheel, the driver always has the reins
securely in his hands. A sporty flair is added by the decorative
carbon-fiber components, which HAMANN fits on the dashboard, center
console, ashtray trim, doors, steering wheel, gearshift knob,
handbrake lever and the I-Drive-Controller. HAMANN adds further
sporty nuances in the form of sport gearshift knobs (in aluminum or
leather/aluminum), aluminum pedals, an aluminum handbrake lever and
an aluminum footrest. An exclusive set of floor mats sporting the
HAMANN logo in silver rounds off the interior offering.
Needless to say, HAMANN will customize every 3 Series to a
customer’s own specific requirements. By way of illustration,
luxurious leather upholsteries in various colors are possible, as
are extensive multimedia conversions featuring a DVD player, TV
reception and a PlayStation.
