Audi RS3 Sportback by SchwabenFolia

Monday, April 28, 2014

SchwabenFolia has covered a modified Audi RS3 Sportback in a matte Gorange (gold-orange) Metallic foil. The car originally had a Suzuka Grey Metallic finish but now it wears a 2,350 EUR golden/orange skin, complemented by the 1,450 EUR customized interior featuring bucket seats with the Nordschleife logo and driver's name. Excluded from foliation were the side mirrors, glossy black roof, front lip, moldings, as well as the Audi rings in the grille, while at the back the taillights are now tinted.
Under the bonnet of this custom RS3 Sportback is the same 5-cylinder, 2.5-liter turbocharged engine but instead of producing 340 HP (250 kW) and 450 Nm (332 lb-ft) it now churns 425 HP (313 kW) and 570 Nm (420 lb-ft). This was possible thanks to software optimization and by installing a RAGE 2.5 exhaust system developed by F-Town Street with dual 80mm tailpipes priced at 5,450 EUR.

The latest Mercedes-Benz G65 AMG has received new looks and a power boost from Hamann for the 2013 Geneva Motor Show.

By installing a custom exhaust system and making other changes, Hamann was able to increase its output to 702 HP (516 kW) and 811 lb-ft (1,100 Nm).

Range Rover Hamann Mystere

Tuesday, April 15, 2014

Hamann applied a shiny pink coat on a 2013 Range Rover which arrived this week in Geneva. One of the most striking cars of the Swiss auto show is without any doubt Hamann's Range Rover. Aside from the pink wrap job, the British premium SUV wears a wide body kit that brings a new hood, front spoiler, front bumper, fenders, side sills and a redesigned rear bumper. Compared to the standard model, this modified Range Rover is 80mm wider.
While most of the body parts have a mirror-like surface, some of the upper ones are covered by a matte-like texture. This Range Rover is 40mm lower thanks to the new custom suspension parts and rides on Unique Forged or Edition Race wheels wrapped around in Continental tires measuring 305/30/23 on all four corners.
A similar mirror grey wrap was used by Hamann for their BMW M6 Coupe (Mirr6r) which is also being showcased in Geneva.
