2012 Hamann HAWK SLS AMG

HAMANN HAWK Roadster – Attractive deluxe convertible with 636 PS

A powerful engine packed into an exclusive body design with matte-red lacquer from HAMANN Motorsport. After the Gran-Turismo-Coupé, HAMANN is now also customizing the Roadster version of this top-class sports car. The result is a genuine treat for both the eyes and the ears: Úpthrust-reducing aerodynamic components, powerful performance enhancements, stainless-steel exhaust systems with a sporty sound, striking 21-inch light-metal rims and deluxe interior modifications bring an individual character to this series vehicle.

Already in its basis version, the SLS provides a significant engine output. But the HAMANN engine department puts some additional power reserves into the V8 engine. Part of the power enhancement is the high-performance exhaust system made out of stainless steel. In combination with a sports air filter, this system also renders the earthy and powerful sound of the 6.2 litre aggregate. The components are precisely adjusted with the help of a new engine characteristic map for motor electronics. With a top performance of 636 hp / 468 kW and a maximum torque of 680 Nm at 4,850 r.p.m, the HAMANN engine exactly meets the wishes of its sports ambitious clientele. The performance enhanced wing door automobile provides first class measures. In race start mode, the two-seater accelerates from 0 to 100 km/h in only 3.6 seconds and with a top speed of 320 km/h, the HAMANN HAWK Roadster also surpasses the basis model.

The superior driving performance is matched with a striking appearance and aerodynamics tested in the wind tunnel. The HAMANN HAWK Roadster front apron replaces the serial bumper and due to its shape it reduces the uplifting forces at the front axle. Larger air inlets in connection with a new LED lights unit give the twoseater an even more dynamic look. In addition, the enlarged air inlets provide better access for the engine's increased need for fresh air. Subsequently, the air is drawn out of new bonnet made of checkered flag carbon. Striking wing, 60mm on each front side and 70mm on each rear side, already render an impressive appearance even while the car has not started moving yet. Side skirts make the Convertible look additionally lower and more stretched and underline the rims. The new rear apron with the diffuser enhances the air flow under the bottom of the car and provides room for four enormous end pipes each measuring 90 mm in diameter.

2012 Hamann HAWK SLS AMGIn order to perfectly combine comfort and control, HAMANN uses the single-part, especially light forged wheels 'Únique Forged Anodized' in 21 inches. These are fitted in 9Jx21 with tyres measuring 245/30 ZR 21 at the front and 12.5Jx21 with tyres measuring 345/25 ZR 21 at the rear axle.

The coilover kit has been especially refined for the HAMANN HAWK Roadster. Equipped with four height-adjustable dampers and four progressively wound springs, the centre of gravity can be lowered by up to 30 millimetres. HAMANN entirely redesigns the interior of the SLS and turns it into a VIP lounge with motorsports characteristics. Most delicate leather and ultra-suede, applications and embroideries replace the serial interior. HAMANN additionally adorns the air inlets, door sill protectors and centre console with red coloured carbon. Black anodized aluminium pedals render a comfortable grip. The technical highlight of the new interior is the new steering wheel which has been ergonomically redesigned.
