(from Hamann Press
Release) HAMANN doesn't only have the world's biggest tuning
program for BMW cars but also creates spectacular high performance
automobiles again and again. The latest custom car from HAMANN (Im

is powered by a 485 hp / 357 kW V8 four-valve engine and captivates
with its sporty design with gullwing doors. The 315 km/h fast rocket
costs 280,000 Euros.
The HAMANN LAS VEGAS WINGS is constructed on the base of a
reinforced bodyshell of the current BMW M3. The V8 engine originally
comes from the M5 but was extensively modified at the HAMANN engine
Among other things the HAMANN doping for the 5.0 litre engine with
single-throttle injection contains modifications on the inlet and
outlet side, a special air induction with ram air effect and a
4-pipe stainless steel high performance exhaust system including
special manifolds and metal-bed catalysts. The entire exhaust system
was specially designed for this car. All new components get
perfectly coordinated with a special mapping for the ECU.
To install the big V8 engine into the relatively small engine
compartment of the BMW M3 many parts like the engine brackets, the
oil-pan and the bonnet with the integrated window had to be
The engine of the HAMANN LAS VEGAS WINGS powers 485 hp / 357 kW at
6,950 rpm and delivers a maximum torque of 555 Nm at 4,100 revs.
The power transmission to the rear wheels is made via a sport clutch
and a six-speed manual gearbox with HAMANN SPORT SHIFT gearshift
travel shortage and a special rear axle differential with 40 per
cent locking rate.
As a result the HAMANN LAS VEGAS WINGS establishes itself among the
world's fastest sports cars: From standstill the coupe catapults in
4.0 seconds only to 100 km/h. After 12.9 seconds the car is already
200 km/h fast. Maximum speed is 315 km/h.
But the HAMANN LAS VEGAS WINGS isn't one of the world's most
exciting cars because of its extremely high road performances. The
innovative HAMANN gullwing design, which stands out against
conventional constructions, makes the coupe a true eyecatcher. The
doors swing up towards the top on an outboard stainless steel hinge
fixed above the outside mirrors and stay in position supported by
special gas dampers. The HAMANN gullwing design is that proven that
the doors can be closed as easily, exactly and imperviously as on
the standard car.
In addition HAMANN modifies the bodywork with sporty bodystyling
components from the HAMANN tuning range for the current M3. The
front of the LAS VEGAS WINGS is made more spectacular by fitting the
HAMANN COMPETITION front spoiler edge, the HAMANN masks for the
standard fog-lights and the HAMANN headlight covers.
The sides of the coupe are upgraded with HAMANN side skirts. To
reach an optimal aerodynamic balance HAMANN furnishes the coupe with
the HAMANN roof spoiler, the HAMANN COMPETITION rear wing with
adjustable center-piece and the HAMANN diffuser for the rear apron.
The sporty look is additionally marked by the special liquid-silver
metallic paint, which changes its color depending on the incidence
of light, the roof in clear-coated Carbon and the multi-piece HAMANN
PG3 light alloy wheels. On the HAMANN LAS VEGAS WINGS these wheels
are fitted in the dimensions 8.5Jx19 front and 10Jx19 rear. For the
tires they chose the sizes 245/35 ZR 19 front and 275/30 ZR 19 on
the rear axle.
To be able to safely control the extreme road performances of the
HAMANN LAS VEGAS WINGS, the customizer updates the gullwing car with
a high performance brake system with grooved brake discs and
aluminium fixed calipers front and rear. In addition they developed
a height-adjustable sport suspension set up for the higher weight of
the V8 engine on the front axle.
The cockpit of the HAMANN LAS VEGAS WINGS has an exclusive
equipment: The handmade HAMANN full leather interior is made with
love down to the smallest detail. Its turquoise and black colors set
a tasteful contrast to the silver color of the bodywork. HAMANN
genuine Carbon applications and aluminium parts such as the pedals,
the gearshift lever, the handbrake lever and the footrest give the
interior a genuine racing touch.
