Hamann Mercedes-Benz AMG G55 Supercharged - Web Exclusive

Aug 28, 2009

On the 30th birthday of the Mercedes-Benz G model, Hamann-Motorsport has honored the all-terrain vehicle with an extensive refining program.

During the designing phase, Hamann added two LED daytime running lights in the front spoiler, rendering a sporty look and increase the passive safety at the same time. The downforce is also increased by the roof spoiler. Powerful fender extensions broaden the G-model by 40mm at the front and 60mm at the rear.

The new rear apron with an integrated diffuser completes the appearance of the body. If desired, air inlets for the hood and a 13-piece exterior set made of carbon fibre (radiator grille, headlight protective grid, mirror housings, door handles, air inlets in the fenders, hood spoiler) set further visual highlights

Additionally, the Hamann engine department developed two powerful performance enhancements for the 5.4-liter motor. The customer can select software with a 35hp increase. While the HM 600 kit offers 600hp (507hp stock). The extensive modifications include software, a pulley kit, metal catalysts, six-pipe exhaust mufflers, gear oil cooling system and an optimized gear control. The modifications lead to acceleration from 0-62mph in only 5.1 seconds.

One of the technical highlights are the three-piece Hamann wheels called Design Edition Race Anodized 24. The light, forged wheel has titanium bolts and are offered in 24x10,5 with tires measuring 315/35 R24. The interior equipment includes aluminium pedals and footrest as well as 24-piece carbon fiber interior set. 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.
