The HAMANN bonnet made from visible carbon fibre strongly highlights the sportiness – it makes perfectly clear: this is not the standard version of the AMG GLE 63 S, but a very special car. The more than impressive appearance of the SUV results from a three-part front spoiler. And as is right and proper for such a thoroughbred athlete the HAMANN concept impresses with clearly defined muscles in form of wing extensions in the front (four parts) and in the back (6 parts) that are underlined by self-confidently shaped side skirts. Compared to the standard version, the car thus gains nine centimetres in width.
At the rear, the tuners conclude the wide-body chapter with an extra wide skirt bottom. The tail pieces in a special design – available in black or silver – are integrated perfectly here. The HAMANN MOTORSPORT diffuser is removable and therefore particularly attractive for vehicles with trailer hitch. The crowning touch is an elegantly sporty rear wing with filigree brackets made of anodised aluminium.
Exclusive 22-inch light-alloy wheels from the HAMANN MOTORSPORT “Challenge” series decorate the GLE. The high-quality rims are equipped with Conti Sport Contact 5P sized 285/40 ZR22 on the front axle and 325/35 ZR22 on the rear axle.
Thanks to this wheel/tyre combination the output potential of the strong SUV can be fully used, also when testing the limits. The standard AMG GLE with its 5.5-litre engine already produces 585 hp (430 kW) that press up to 760 Nm on the crank. Not bad at all, but more is possible after HAMANN MOTORSPORT’s performance cure. Thanks to a new ignition map programming, the technicians coax 680 hp (500 kW) out of the eight-cylinder engine – almost 17 per cent more performance. The torque rises to impressive 900 Nm – more than 18 per cent increase. And, as if incidentally, the refiners from Laupheim loosen the electronic bonds for the car to be able to reach 300 km/h.
Those seeking the exclusive something for the interior will make a find at HAMANN as well. The cockpit and headrests are refined by sporty, precious applications in one of HAMANN’s proven deluxe versions. And the sport pedals as well as the exclusive set of floor mats with HAMANN logo should not miss. All components are available separately or as complete package. HAMANN refines new cars completely from the date of delivery or retrofits already registered vehicles.
