Hamann Hawk Mercedes-Benz SLS AMG Roadster

Southern German tuning specialist Hamann Motorsport has applied its Hawk program to the Mercedes-Benz SLS AMG Roadster.

Powered by that glorious 6.2-litre V8, which produces 420 kW (571 hp) and 649 Nm (479 lb-ft) of torque in standard form, Hamann adds its own sports air filter and stainless steel exhaust system before remapping the engine’s electronics to release 474 kW (636 hp) and 680 Nm (502 lb/ft); enough for a 0-100 km/h (62 mph) time of just 3.6 seconds a top speed of 320 km/h (198 mph).

Visually the Hawk features the same aero package as its gullwing-doored counterpart, namely a replacement front bumper with enlarged air intakes, a carbon fibre lower spoiler and LED daytime running lights, sculpted side skirts and wheel arch extensions adding 60 mm on each front side and 70 mm on each rear side. Moving to the back, the bumper receives an apron with integrated diffuser and apertures for the quadruple 90 mm tailpipes. There’s also a vented hood, mirror casings and grille bars which are constructed from carbon fibre.

The factory suspension has been replaced by a height adjustable coilover kit allowing a drop of up to 30 mm, while the new ‘Unique Forged Anodized’ wheels, which measure 9 x 21 and 12.5 x 21-inches, are wrapped in 245/30 ZR and 345/25 ZR tyres.

Moving inside, the cabin has been reupholstered in a mixture of leather and ultra-suede, with red accents added to the air inlets, steering wheel and centre console.
