German super-tuner Hamann -a company that deals in all things luxury including Mercs, Porsches, and Lamborghinis, but clearly preferring to be associated with BMW- has just revealed its first comprehensive customization program for the still-fresh BMW X6 sports car. Being a rather strange mix of a four-door coupe and an SUV, the base vehicle tries to be a jack of all trades. The German tuning specialist, however, helps you make the sporty crossover what it has to be: a sports car that, while still being a bit overweight compared to a normal four-door coupe, has all things necessary to give you a right mixture of driving pleasure and utility that many crossovers strived for, but only a few of them actually achieved.
German tuner Hamann will soon offer its new tuning program for the gorgeous 2008 Aston Martin V8 Vantage Coupe, as well as for the more frivolous V8 Vantage Roadster. While many tuning studios out there often try to sell you appearance kits that are painfully exaggerated, sometimes vulgar, and often simply lacking in the good taste department, Hamann does the job with a sense of grace that you only acquire with decades of experience in the business of selling to people things they don’t need at a price they cannot afford.
It’s been more than a year since the Bavarian company introduced its facelifted 2008 BMW 6-Series coupe and convertible sport cars. Clearly looking more muscular and energetic (and less than an overweight shark on a high-calorie diet), the refreshed 6-series attracted lots of attention both from motorists and tuning specialists that immediately started churning out new appearance and power upgrade programs for the German vehicle.
Although the 2008 BMW X6 coupe-shaped SUV (the German car manufacturer prefers to call it a ‘SAC’, which stands for ‘Sports Activity Coupe’) has only just arrived to select markets, some tuners are already offering body kits and even some modest tuning programs for the much over-hyped vehicle that somehow manages to combine low, dynamic profile of a sports coupe with a bulky body of a crossover.
