HAMANN HAWK Mercedes SLS AMG Roadster

The German tuning outfit has readied the SLS AMG Roadster for the Geneva Motor Show.

The second of Hamann's five exclusive tuning projects to be revealed in Geneva is based on the Roadster variant of the contemporary icon that is the Mercedes-Benz SLS AMG. Upthrust reducing aerodynamic components are both functional and aesthetic in nature, including a front apron that replaces the serial bumper with new LED lights, enlarged air inlets, a checkered flag carbon-fiber hood with air vents, side skirts, and a rear bumper fascia with diffuser and carbon-fiber wing.

A high-performance stainless-steel exhaust system with four enormous end pipes, 90mm in diameter, combined with a sports air filter help to deliver additional power to the already powerful 6.3-liter V8 engine. Aided by a remapped ECU, performance is increased to 628hp from 563hp and torque is measured at 502lb-ft. In race start mode, the two-seater can now accelerate from 0-62mph in 3.6 seconds on the way to a top speed of 199mph. Handling is enhanced via 21-inch Unique Forged Anodized light alloys and a coilover kit equipped with four height-adjustable dampers and four progressively wound springs that lowers the car's center of gravity by up to 30mm.
