Hamann Tycoon BMW X6 widebody kit


Hamann applies its wiles to the genre-bending BMW X6 once again
Late in 2008 Hamann revealed its plans for the BMW X6, including a range of performance and appearance upgrades. Today the tuning house expands that range with a new Tycoon widebody kit for the 'sports activity coupe'.

Building on the foundation of Hamann's earlier X6 modificaitions, including power upgrades to the xDrive30d and xDrive35d diesel engines as well as the big and powerful xDrive50i petrol V8. Rated at 261hp (195kW) and 315hp (235kW) for the diesel models, respectively, Hamann has not yet disclosed the power upgrade for the xDrive50i, though building on the already-potent 400hp (298kW) twin-turbo V8 ensures it will be a beast.

The key new upgrades for the Tycoon variant, however, relate to the widebody kit, which extends the car's horizontal width by 2.36in (60mm). That extra width comes via wider fender flares, and an updated front fascia and side skirt kit help accentuate the new, wide stance. LED daytime running lights also add a unique touch, while the rear of the vehicle gets a new diffuser and roof spoiler.

Alloy wheels in 23in 'XXL format' fills the gaping arches to the brim, and the wide lip further emphasizes the widebody design. A 40mm lowering kit, wide low-profile tires and reworked suspension ensure the big vehicle makes good use of the new-found width and stability.

Extensive carbon fiber trim and Hamann-branded accents both inside and out finish off the Tycoon treatment. For more examples of tuned BMW X6s, check out the work of MCCHIP, AC Schnitzer and Lumma Design.

Interesting, still trying to figure out why the X6 was ever made, but I guess it's kind of cool.

I'm thinking it was made to compete with the Cayenne. Power levels are similar and the price is nicer. The interior of the X6 is in fact very nice, and it rides great, and it goes when you push the go pedal. And just think what a software reflash is going to do for that twin turbo V8!

1995 E38 740i. Highly modded. Faster than you.

You're probably right. I haven't seen too many X6's around. I kind of live in the land of E53 X5's. At BMW of Darien I was able to get up and close and I do agree that it has a very nice interior, but it's not the car for me. I do agree however that the new twin turbo V8 is going to be a monster and if the N54 reflash increases are anything to go by then it will indeed be a monster!

I believe that Diesels are finally coming to the US market in both the 3 series in x-drive and the X5 in diesel. According to BMW USA, they have been here since Fall 2008, but I haven't seen any. I actually saw a BMW Efficient Dynamics commercial the other day and had to look it up because heard rumors about Diesel BMW's being offered for sale in the US but never saw anything in print about it.

Yeah, a heavier a vehicle is better matched to the torque advantage of a diesel powertrain. Clearly.
