Hamann Details Tuning Program for New BMW 6-Series Convertible, More to Come in Frankfurt

Earlier this year, BMW tuning specialist Hamann Motorsport teased its tuning program for the freshly launched 6-Series Convertible with the release of the first photos of the car.

Today, the German company gave out information on its initial offerings for the soft-top 6-Series and announced that it will unveil a more aggressive tune at the upcoming 2011 Frankfurt Motor Show this September.

In its first effort to enhance the looks and performance of the 6-Series Convertible, Hamann Motorsport offers owners a comprehensive choice of alloy wheel designs in black, silver or a combination of both finishes and in sizes 20- or 21-inches.

For a more athletic stance, Hamann proposes a sports suspension that lowers the car’s ride height by around 30 mm at the front and 25 mm at the rear using new springs.

Owners of the 650i Convertible can also opt for a sports exhaust system that includes four round 90 mm tailpipes.

Interior upgrades come in the way of aluminium pedals and a footrest, plus bespoke foot mats with a silver ‘HAMANN’ logo.
