2010 HAMANN Mercedes-Benz G55 AMG SuperchargedElaborate tuning – committed to tradition
The HAMANN refining programme for the Mercedes-Benz AMG G55
On the occasion of the 30th birthday of the Mercedes-Benz G model, HAMANN-
Motorsport honours the legendary all-terrain vehicle with an extensive refining
programme. With its exquisite tuning options for the current top model, the Mercedes-
Benz AMG G55 Supercharged, HAMANN-Motorsport once more confirms that it is the
first address for sporty accessories.
Already since 1986, the Laupheim-based company develops and manufactures
products for individualising exclusive automobiles. The HAMANN technicians thereby
profit from hundreds of successful participations in motor sports. The know-how which
was gained there is the basis for development of HAMANN products and guarantees
the highest level of product quality and production. The result: Stainless steel exhaust
systems with a sporty and earthy sound, powerful performance enhancements, lifting-
force reducing aerodynamics components and striking light alloy rims from 20 to 24
inches. The accessory assortment includes perfectly lined interior equipments in
combination with colour-coordinated floor mats and non-slip aluminium pedals.
Already during the designing phase, HAMANN perfectly adjusts the individual
components of the aerodynamic kit to the striking car body shape of the automobile.
This results in an exciting styling with an optimised air flow over the car silhouette.
Two integrated LED daytime running lights are integrated in the front spoiler and
render a sporty and dynamic look and increase the passive safety at the same time. At
the same time the lifting forces of the 5-door car are reduced in connection with the
roof spoiler. Powerful fender extensions broaden the G-model by 40 millimetres at the
front axle and 60 millimetres at the back axle.
The newly designed rear skirt with the integrated diffuser perfects the attractive overall
appearance of the car body. If desired, air inlets for the new carbon-bonnet and a 13part
exterior set made of carbon fibre (radiator grill, headlight protective grid, mirror
cases, door handles, air inlets in the side wings, bonnet air blind) set further visual
In addition to the exciting look of the aerodynamics look, the HAMANN engine
department developed two powerful performance enhancements for the 5.4 litre
motor. The customer can select an engine operating map with 35 hp / 25 kW
additional output while the maximum torque increases to 100 Newton metres. The
maximum power enhancement results after adding the performance kit HM 600 with
breathtaking 600 hp / 441 kW (serial value: 507 hp / 373 kW) and an impressive
torque of 782 Nm at 3,000 – 5,200 r.p.m. The extensive engine modification includes
an amended motor electronic with annulations, a belt pulley kit, metal catalysts, 6-pipe
sport end silencers, gear oil cooling system and an optimised gear control.
The modifications lead to an acceleration from zero to 100 km/h in only 5.1 seconds
and the 4-wheel car achieves a maximum speed of 261 km/h (serial value: 210 km/h).
One of the technical highlights and maximum dimension in the available rim
programme is the three-part HAMANN aluminium wheel called DESIGN EDITION
RACE “ANODIZED“ 24“. Characteristic for the modern style of the ultra-light forged
wheel is the black rim star and the titanium bolting. The ultra gloss polished rim flange
emphasised the noble appearance. HAMANN offers the 24-inch wheel in the
dimension 10,5J with tyres measuring 315/35 R 24.
In addition to the existing serially offered interior equipment, HAMANN presents
accessories made of fine aluminium. The pedals and foot rests render motor sports
atmosphere and perfectly go with the 24-part interior set made of carbon fibre. Door
sill ledges made of brushed stainless steel with blue lights are adorned with the
HAMANN logo as well as the embroidered HAMANN floor mat set perfect the overall
look of the noble interior. The ergonomically re-designed airbag steering wheel in 4spoke
design is both sporty and lies very well in the hand. If desired, everything up to
the entire leather equipment can be manufactured in artisan precision.
