Saturday, March 3rd, 2012

Hawk is the name of the package Hamann has made for the Mercedes SLS Roadster.

This beasty car features a unique body kit with widened fenders, front lip, rear diffuser, new wings, the whole nine yards in fact. It also has a two-tone black and red paint job which is a bit too vulgar, but sporty.

We are more fond of the mechanicals in this car, as the 570hp V8 engine has been given a fresh breath of life and booted to 636 hp and 680 Nm of torque. That means 0 to 100 in 3.6 seconds, and the top speed of 320 km/h.

21-inch wheels, sport suspension, and black and red interior are other parts of the Hawk package.

The torque had to be limited to 1100Nm or the gearbox would just shatter. 1100 is still plenty though, so the car does 0 to 100km/h in 3.7 seconds and 200km/h in 9.8 seconds, and can eventually reach 370 km/h.

A body kit, a set of wheels and some leather and carbon fiber for the interior are also included.
