Hamann offers power improvements for two X6 engines. Output in the xDrive35i is increased to 360 horsepower and 398 pound-feet of torque. Top speed on that model has also been lifted to 171 mph. The xDrive30d turbodiesel is modified to make 261 hp and 443 lb-ft. A performance kit for the 5.0-liter diesel is under development. Hamann also offers exhaust systems with either two or four outlets that can be added to any model.
For style, Hamann adds a new front apron, side sills and a three-piece rear diffuser. There are two new spoilers above and below the rear glass, and LED daytime running lights in the new fascia. X6 Tycoons will roll on 23-inch forged wheels connected to new springs.
Inside, X6 owners can add aluminum pedals, a 12-piece carbon fiber trim set, a three-spoke sport steering wheel and new gauges.

Default Hamann Stallion

Hamann is good at lots of things. But giving a 911 Turbo a name like the Stallion is not done. That name goes well with Mustangs and Chargers. But anyway, this is the Hamann Stallion, a modified Porsche 911 Turbo.

First things first: They've given the car scissor doors. Apparently helps with stability or something. They've added spoilers everywhere they can too. To complete the handling upgrade, Hamann have lowered the roofline reducing the pillars and windows by up to 8cm. Add to that the bodykit, the roof scoop, big 20 inch wheels (8,5Jx20 inches rims with tires measuring 245/30ZR20 in front and 12,0Jx20 rims with 325/25ZR20 tires at the back) and the rear wing and you won't worry about the power.

Because you probably will worry about the power at first glance
They've managed to squeeze out 630 hp / 463 kW at 6,300 rpm!!! They do this with the help of two large VNT (variable nozzle turbochargers), a sport air strainer, a stainless steel exhaust system with metal catalytic converters and a new motor management. whew!

Max Speed? A measly 395 KMPH. 0-100 takes too long......3.3 seconds.

Default Cobra GT-R

No you didn't read it wrong. Cobra have actually managed to tune the Nissan GT-R. Who would have thought it was possible to actually tune that monster?

But they did tune it. To a whopping 550 BHP/404.8 kW, with an increase in torque to 680 Nm! Electronics have been reprogrammed, sport air filters have been added and a free-flow COBRA N+ high-performance exhaust system with metal catalysts is reported to be under way.

Top speed is 320 kmph and 0-100 takes just under 3.5 seconds.

Lightweight 21-inch alloy wheels are used as are specially made eight-piston brake calipers. An optional coil-over suspension adds to the handling.

Interiors are offered in two options: Luxury alacantra leather seats or a carbon fibre filled race cockpit.

P.S.: Cobra aren't done with it yet. This is only the "first stage" according to them. They reckon they can get atleast 620 BHP/ 456.3 kW and a peak torque of approximately 800 Nm out of this engine.



P.S.S.: Cobra have gone all out in branding this car. A list of all that they've branded:
1. COBRA N+ stainless-steel high-performance exhaust system with metal catalysts.
2. COBRA N+ light-alloy wheels
3. COBRA N+ eight-piston brake calipers
4. COBRA N+ coil-over suspension
5. COBRA N+ front apron with large air dams
6. COBRA N+ rocker panels
7. COBRA N+ rear apron with integrated diffuser
8. COBRA N+ rear airfoil
9. COBRA N+ Speed and Stripes decal kit
10. COBRA N+ racing cockpit (optional)

I'm sure they have more, these are the only ones I picked up.

Man the X6 and 911 are total droolmal and machines you'd want to name and keep in a beautiful warehouse full of exotics taking them out every weekend, and make sure you get a manicure before you grab the steering just to make sure it's immaculate...

The Cobra GT-R well looks pretty decent, but somehow the Nissan tag just doesn't fit a car at it's price, they could've at least called it an Infiniti!

Thanks guys!

@AyAn! I agree about the Porsche, I thought the scissor doors were pushing it. But I actually like the yellowish livery on the GT-R..

Novitech always does beautiful work. Great F-car but it would be better without all the skulls everywhere.

No 'h' in Novitec.

Apparently, Calavera means skull in Spanish. So the artist who was given the task of designing it used a lot of skulls...

Cool Amusing GTR ;)

Slightly older than the Cobra GTR, but it wipes the floor with it.

Its latest creation is called the Power House Amuse Phantom GT-R, and is based on the more luxurious Black Edition model. Peak output stands at 602hp at 6,500rpm and 571lb-ft of torque at 5,300rpm, which is enough to see the run Japanís legendary Tsukuba test circuit in just 1m and 1.32 seconds.

Modifications start with the removal of the carís speed limiter, followed by an ECU retune to accommodate much high boost pressures. The carís standard exhaust is also replaced with a lighter high-flow titanium unit, which is joined by an electronic boost controller.

To improve handling, Amuse adds stiffer springs and threaded sleeves that allow for height adjustment at front and rear. The final addition is a set of Recaro carbon-Kevlar racing seats, along with a removable Momo steering wheel.

The combined weight savings from the new carbon seats plus the titanium exhaust is a substantial 100 pounds, bring the carís final kerb weight to just over 3,690 pounds all up.

Yes, the spoiler looks cheesy, but its one scorcher on the track.
BTW BLR has one of these not as full blown, but with enough upgrades to bump it to 580ish BHP.

And yeah, forgot to mention, cobra tuning may eventually beat it in terms of HP, but for sheer audio effect, it's gonna take a while. Have a look at this, & turn UP your speakers... Pipes are HKS though, but the exhaust kit is AMUSE
