Hamann Introduces Wide-Body Kit For The Porsche Panamera

When it comes to customising luxury automobiles, the name Hamann-Motorsport is known all over the world. With the introduction of the new program for Porsche’s Panamera, the tuning company from Laupheim,Germany, commends itself again as the address to be when it comes to sporty accessories and exciting chassis designs for the posh models of the high-end sport cars.

Sporty elegance gives distinction to the Hamann Wide-Body Kit  for Porsche Panamera design: In order to meet the highly visual requirements and aerodynamic demands, the Hamann engineers revamped the front of the four-seater completely. Larger air intakes in connection with perfectly integrated daytime running lights give the Porsche an even more dynamic look. Moreover, the optimized airflow – generated by the redesigned bonnet – reduces the lift at the front axle even further. Adding 60 mm width to the front and rear fenders makes the GranTurismo look even more imposing and are instrumental for the powerful overall appearance of the Hamann customization. The Hamann side skirts were modelled such as to steady the airflow across the sides and let the stylish sports car appear even closer to the tarmac and stretched. In order to reduce the up-lift forces at the rear axle, the Hamann engineers developed a special diffuser rear apron for the sedan from Zuffenhausen. The apron encases the striking dual tailpipes of the sports exhaust system and makes this car’s rear a real eye catcher.

To bring the mighty appearance to a full circle, Hamann added its new 22-inch rims: Unique Forged “Gunmetal”. The design of the extremely light wheel combines sportiness and elegance. The recommended front wheel/tire combination is 9.5Jx22 inches with 265/30 ZR 22 tyres. The rear is fitted with 11.0Jx22 inch rims and 305/25 ZR 22 tires.

Special eye catchers are the new alu wheels with special suspensions or a lowering module for the air suspension that lowers the Panamera’s center of gravity up to 30 mm. At the same time, the handling of the sports car is notably improved.

A power enhancement for the Panamera Turbo will soon be offered by Hamann as the core part of its customization program. Included in this upgrade – which is still under development – is a rear sports muffler as well as a new engine management system. The result is a performance increase by 80 hp and a torque that has been enhanced by 120 Nm.
