Hamann Spyridon: Mercedes-Benz G65 AMG gone wild

A glowing horse and monstrous power highlight Hamann's G-Wagen

The Hamann Spyridon, which recently made its debut at the 2013 Geneva auto show, dazzled show goers with its glowing Pegasus, but the myriad modifications the noted German tuner has made to the Mercedes-Benz G 65 AMG are just as dazzling. For the Spyridon, Hamann's signature horse logo was painted with several layers of illuminating paint and when exposed to small voltage, it glows, and is featured on the hood and the spare wheel cover in the rear.

Power

The stock G65 AMG is already a powerful beast in its own right, and Hamann takes it to another level with an optimized version of the G65's 6.0-liter 12-cylinder powerplant that develops an insane 702 horsepower (an increase of some 100 hp) and 818 lb-ft of torque (an increase of roughly 81 lb-ft). Hamann also offers an upgrade of the G63 featuring Benz's 5.5-liter V-8 bi-turbo engine, and it's no slouch either, pumping out a very impressive 610 hp (compared to 544) and pushes out 645 foot-pounds of torque (compared to 516). The power is also pushed through an all new Hamann supplied exhaust system.

Exterior Styling

To help create the Spyridon's more simplistic, yet noticeable look, LED fluorescent strips were added to the front spoiler, which not only operate as daytime running lights, but also double as turn signals. As a result, the blinker boxes are removed, adding to the sleek look. LED lights are also featured on the side skirts that light up the floor and the triple tailpipes.

The mirror housing and hood are both made of carbon only coming in at only 7.7 pounds. Although the roof spoiler and rear apron add to the appearance of the 65 AMG, they are also responsible for improved dynamics. The redesigned triple tailpipes are made from solid aluminum and are coated in a gold color. To complete the look, the Spyridon's 24-inch light-alloy wheels (Race or Unique Forged) are made from solid aluminum and are encased in Vredestein Ultrac SUV Sessanta tires.

Interior Styling

Detailed stitching on the instrument panel and seats adds to the gold-colored leather door panels. There are twenty-four carbon trim pieces in the interior as well as sports pedals made out of aluminum. The Hamann horse can be found on the floormat in silver embroidery accenting the black pearl velour mats. Completing the sophisticated interior design are brushed stainless steel door sills with an illuminated Hamann logo in white.
