2002 Hamann 911 Gullwing

Since September 2002, Hamann now also customize the current Porsche models as well as cars from BMW, Ferrari, Mini and Range Rover.

But Hamann doesn’t only offer classical tuning for engine, bodywork, chassis and interior: Hamann gives the car wings in the true sense of the word! At the Geneva Motor Show 2003, Hamann celebrated its spectacular whocar with a revolutionary gullwing door design. The special model, which costs 239,000 Euro, was constructed on the basis of the Porsche 911 GT3.

The innovative Hamann gullwing design, which stands out against conventional construction, makes the coupe from Zuffenhausen a true eyecatcher. The doors swing up towards the top on an outboard stainless steel hinge fixed above the outside mirrors and stay in position supported by special gas dampers. The Hamann gullwing design is that proven that the doors can be closed as easily, exactly and imperviously as on the standard car. Any 911 Carrera and Turbo of the 996 model range can be converted to Hamann gullwing doors.

In addition the extravagant appearance of the Hamann Porsche is marked by the extremely sporty styled bodystyling kit and the liquid-silver metallic special paint. This custom paint changes its shade depending on the solar position. The face of the sportscar is marked by the special headlight moldings and the Hamann front apron with additional Competition front spoiler. With this combination the lift on the front axle is reduced that much that driving stability at high speed is further optimized. In addition, the apron, which completely replaces the standard bumper, has large air intakes to improve the fresh air supply of the coolers installed in the nose and the cooling of the front brakes.

The Hamann side skirts don’t only create a streamlined transition between the wheel houses in front and rear: They also harmoniously lead over to the rear Hamann fender flarings which make the two-door car seven centimeters broader.

The enlarged wheel houses give room for extreme wheels: On the rear axle the car is furnished with multi-piece 13Jx19 light alloy wheels with 315/25 ZR 19 tires. 9Jx19 wheels with 235/35 ZR 19 tires perfectly fill the standard front fenders. Hamann offers two different wheel designs: Beside the popular PG3 five-spoke rim there is also available the Hamann Anniversary multi-spoke wheel.

The Hamann coil-over sport suspension, which is adjustable in height and damping, and the stronger sport anti-roll bars are specially set up for the extreme 19-inch wheel/tire combination.

The maximum power of 412 hp / 303 kW is reached at 7,260 rpm, 405 Nm of maximum torque are available at 6,830 rpm. Accordingly the road performances of the Hamann showcar are extremely high: From standstill the car catapults itself in 4.5 seconds to 100 km/h. After 13.6 seconds the special model is 200 km/h fast. Maximum speed is at 305 km/h.
