Hamann-Tuned BMW X6M Named Tycoon Evo M, Headed to Geneva

Just when you thought Hamann's styling team couldn't top its latest X6-based creation, the Typhoon Evo, here comes the Tycoon Evo. It'll take center stage at the tuner's Geneva show booth and it's sure to grab more than a few glances thanks to its erm, unique design.

Despite its controversial appearance, the Tycoon does go like stink courtesy of a few tweaks to the BMW twin-turbo V-8. Installed under its vented carbon fiber hood are a reflashed ECU and a stainless steel exhaust that create an astounding 670 horsepower and 737 foot-pounds of torque, or 123 ponies and 236 foot-pounds more than a U.S.-spec X6 M. Plant the right foot and you'll get to 62 mph in a claimed 4.2 seconds. (It takes the stock model 4.5 seconds to get to 60 mph from a standstill.) Talk about one mean punch.
The power is matched with a body that's 60 mm wider than stock and sports composite panels. Front and rear bumpers, in addition to the side skirts, play a crucial role in keeping the engine and brakes cool. They also keep the hefty SAV planted during high-speed getaways. A set of 23-inch forged monoblock wheels matched with rubber band-like 315/25ZR23 tires and a 40 mm suspension drop boost the coolness factor.

It's fairly simple inside. Hamann logos adorn the seats and pertinent highly used parts like the pedals, steering wheel, and shift knob. Aluminum and carbon adorn the cabin. That three-spoke sport wheel does look nice and comfy.
No word on pricing, but considering the tuning house, it won't be cheap.
