BMW X5 E70 tuned by Hamann

After introducing tuned versions of Ferrari 612 Scaglietti and Lamborghini Murcielago LP640, German tuner Hamann has eventually presented its tuning program for a much less expensive but anyway gorgeous BMW X5 E70 SUV.

Sacrificing off-road capabilities in the name of on-road stability, Hamann's engineers have equipped the new BMW X5 with a new front spoiler mounted on the standard front apron and a new rear apron matching its styling. New roof spoiler will also provide additional stabilizing effect to the large vehicle.

The BMW X5 E70's Motronic ECU has also been reprogrammed to squeeze some additional power out of the vehicle's 3.0-liter oil-burner. The engine's maximum power output is now increased from 235 PS to more impressive 265 PS and 600 Nm of torque. The 8-cylinder 4.8i engine also produces 18PS more power and features some increase in torque.
