(from Hamann Press
Release) HAMANN VOLCANO
The serial Mercedes-Benz SLR is already one of the most impressive
cars on our roads but compared to the HAMANN VOLCANO it still
looks rather harmless. Once again, HAMANN-Motorsport proves its
cutting edge when it comes to refining superb sports cars. From a
lift-reducing body design to a powerful performance enhancement to a
lavishly styled interior, HAMANN focuses on all components of this
luxury car and makes the automobile dreams of its exclusive
clientele come true.
The total makeover of the Laupheim-based refiner is made of
extremely light full carbon and consists of front- and rear wing
extensions and also new side skirt attachments and sheathings. The
front view of the Volcano is optically perfected with a newly
designed bonnet which enhances the overall impression by its
integrated hood scoop. But also for the rear, the refining
technicians implemented new ideas giving the SLR appearance its
finishing touch. Under the boot lid cover, HAMANN placed a strong
diffuser which improves the carīs output in combination with the
large rear wing. At the front axle, a newly developed front spoiler
renders the necessary contact pressure. If desired, an especially
developed overall paint for the VOLCANO in either aluminium/chrome
or white/matt completes the striking appearance of this bolide.
The 21-inch rims named EDITION RACE with tyres measuring 255/30ZR21
at the front and 345/25ZR21 at the back render an optimal road grip.
The design of the extraordinary light forged wheel thereby combines
vitality and elegance and also perfectly fills out the wheel houses.
The HAMANN makeover is not only sportive, but also has a lot to
offer under the bonnet. The HAMANN motor technicians get the most
out of the Mercedes Benz V8-aggregate (5.4 litres, 626 hp, 780 Nm):
700 hp / 515 kW and a maximum torque of 830 Nm at 3,300 crankshaft
revolutions per minute. The therefore necessary modifications
include a newly programmed control unit, especially developed high
performance exhaust manifolds and an amended belt pulley combination
for the serial compressors. In order to facilitate the increased
motor performance, HAMANN adds a second water pump and adjusts the
gearbox electronics. Invigorated in this way and with the adequate
sound from the six end pipes of the sport exhaust system, the
VULCANO accelerates from naught to a hundred in only 3.6 seconds.
With a maximum speed of 348 km/h, the HAMANN VOLCANO is 14 km/h
faster than the serial model.
The HAMANN product even beats the factory-provided
performance-enhanced special series SLR 722 by impressive 11 km/h.
A skillfully refined interior is waiting for the VOLCANO-pilot and
also the exterior does not rank behind. The overall makeover
contains pedals and foot rests in aluminium as well as noble door
sill protectors and headrests with embossed embroidered
HAMANN-Logos. They can also be found on the exclusive floor mats.
The overall makeover can be enhanced with a HAMANN interior set
containing custom-made carbon parts for the dashboard and centre
console. If desired, also the roof interior, all pillars, the
cockpit including the steering wheel and the sun visors can hereby
be adjusted in terms of colour. Therefore, HAMANN solely uses the
high-quality material Alcantara.
