Hamann Hawk SLS Roadster


The new Mercedes SLS Roadster receives a very thorough tuning package from Hamann.

Called the Hawk, this car gets a massive wide body kit with revised bumpers, flared arches, carbon fiber bonnet, mirrors and spoilers, and a new rear diffuser. The body is finished in red with exposed carbon fiber parts to complement it. It looks scary, but nothing like a hawk.

Then there’s th power upgrade kit. Part of the power enhancement is the high-performance exhaust system made out of stainless steel. In combination with a sports air filter, this system also renders the earthy and powerful sound of the 6.2 litre aggregate. The result is 636 hp / 468 kW and a maximum torque of 680 Nm at 4,850 r.p.m. That is the real beauty of this car.

More details in Hamann press release:

The superior driving performance is matched with a striking appearance and aerodynamics tested in the wind tunnel. The HAMANN HAWK Roadster front apron replaces the serial bumper and due to its shape it reduces the uplifting forces at the front axle. Larger air inlets in connection with a new LED lights unit give the two- seater an even more dynamic look. In addition, the enlarged air inlets provide better access for the engine’s increased need for fresh air. Subsequently, the air is drawn out of new bonnet made of checkered flag carbon. Striking wing, 60mm on each front side and 70mm on each rear side, already render an impressive appearance even while the car has not started moving yet. Side skirts make the Convertible look additionally lower and more stretched and underline the rims. The new rear apron with the diffuser enhances the air flow under the bottom of the car and provides room for four enormous end pipes each measuring 90 mm in diameter.

?In order to perfectly combine comfort and control, HAMANN uses the single-part, especially light forged wheels “Unique Forged Anodized“ in 21 inches. These are fitted in 9Jx21 with tyres measuring 245/30 ZR 21 at the front and 12.5Jx21 with tyres measuring 345/25 ZR 21 at the rear axle.

The coilover kit has been especially refined for the HAMANN HAWK Roadster. Equipped with four height-adjustable dampers and four progressively wound springs, the centre of gravity can be lowered by up to 30 millimetres.

HAMANN entirely redesigns the interior of the SLS and turns it into a VIP lounge with motorsports characteristics. Most delicate leather and ultra-suede, applications and embroideries replace the serial interior. HAMANN additionally adorns the air inlets, door sill protectors and centre console with red coloured carbon. Black anodized aluminium pedals render a comfortable grip. The technical highlight of the new interior is the new steering wheel which has been ergonomically redesigned.
