BMW X5: black Hamann

Third generation (F15/F85; 2014)

The F15 X5 (or F85 for the X5 M) is the third generation of the X5, and was first unveiled to the public on 30 May 2013. It officially debuted in November 2013.

It shared the same chassis and wheelbase as the E70, and introduced a choice of three engines. The range included the xDrive50i (petrol V-8 producing 450 bhp), the xDrive30d (turbocharged inline-6 diesel producing 258 bhp), and the M50d Performance (turbocharged inline-6 diesel producing 381 bhp).

In December 2013, additional engine options became available. This included the six-cylinder xDrive40d and xDrive35i models, as well as the four-cylinder xDrive25d (all-wheel drive) and sDrive25d (rear-wheel drive) models. BMW added a Plug-in Hybrid Electric Vehicle model (the xDrive40e), which was powered by a turbocharged four-cylinder engine. The xDrive40e’s electric motor achieves a peak power output of 83 kW, and a continuous output of 55 kW with the 9kWh 351V Li-ion battery pack.

Hamann Motorsport GmbH is a German car tuning company based in Laupheim. It specialises in Audi, Aston Martin, Bentley, BMW, Mini, Ferrari, Fiat, Jaguar, Land Rover, Maserati, Mercedes, Rolls-Royce, Porsche and Lamborghini cars. Hamann Motorsport was founded by Richard Hamann in 1986.

The company was founded only to work with cars made in Germany, specifically BMW, but since then, has expanded its business into other car manufacturers such as Lamborghini, Porsche, Aston Martin and Ferrari. It also creates its own, one-of-a-kind cars.

Hamann offers cosmetic changes such as low profile spoilers, bodykits, carbon fiber splitters, and multi-piece alloy wheels. Other upgrades include racing LSDs, open racing exhaust systems, twelve-piston disc brakes, and engine remapping. The company orders crate engines from the dealership and then redesigns them. The company designs and builds upon numerous parts of the original car, such as tuning the car’s engine, lowering the car, making a new body with more features, and installing racing tires.

The first car from Hamann Motorsport was the BMW M3 (E30), producing 348 PS (256 kW) from a 2.3L R4 engine (with a turbocharger). The car accelerated from 0-60 mph in 5.1 seconds and reach a top speed of 170 mph (273 km/h).
