HAMANN offers selected accessories for the BMW X3
HAMANN is famous for its uncompromising conversions of vehicles from all wellknown manufacturers. However, the specialist based in Laupheim, Germany, with its roots in motor sport has also managed to achieve a refinement with just a few modest changes that is worthy of the HAMANN name. This is shown by the range of accessories for the current BMW X3 (F25 type).
HAMANN has developed the light-alloy wheels in the ANNIVERSARY EVO design specifically for more weight-intensive vehicles that require higher load-bearing. The one-piece wheel simultaneously impresses with its low weight and minimal unsprung mass for dynamic cornering. For the BMW X3 the silver wheel is available in multispoke designs in 9×22 inch size for the front and 10.5 x 22 inches for the rear axle.
The ANNIVERSARY EVO Hyper Black design variant is painted in black and chrome. This version of the successful multi-spoke wheel is available, for example, as an attractive 9×21 inch complete wheel with the ultra high-performance Vredestein Ultrac Vorti R tyres in 265/30 ZR 21 size. The high-performance tyres are designed for extreme sporting challenges at speeds above the 300 km/h mark and therefore an ideal partner for HAMANN.
Because in order to fully exploit the sophisticated dynamics of light-alloy wheels, HAMANN offers specially tuned performance boosts for all engine variants of the BMW X3. For petrol engine versions of the xDrive 20i, 28i and 35i the engineers have coaxed more out of the capabilities thanks to optimisation of the ECU. Thus the topend engine of the xDrive 35i now produces an impressive 348 hp (266 kW) instead of the standard 306 hp (225 kW), and the maximum torque jumps from 400 to 449 newton metres.
The diesel variants of the xDrive 18D, 20D, 30D and 35d also benefit from the HAMANN engine optimisation of the series Motronics. The most powerful diesel engine in the 35d now reaches not just 313 hp (230 kW), but thanks to the change in performance 355 hp (260 kW) and a maximum torque of 695 instead of 630 newton metres.
The targeted program is rounded off for the BMW X3 with a lowering kit, which the BMW takes with progressive suspension springs of around 35 millimetres ground clearance, and rewards with much better driving dynamics. With the finely selected components HAMANN is joining its beginnings as a exclusive BMW refinement company with its own flair for sportiness and style.
