Equipped with Mopar parts, such as a coil-over suspension, front-and rear-strut tower braces, short-throw shifter, front splitter, cat-back exhaust, custom exhaust headers and a set of Goodyear F1 Supercar performance tires, the Challenger ACR is an animal that has as much bark as its cornering bite.

Red painted mirror caps and brake calipers, unique black painted five-spoke 20-inch alloy wheels and red “ACR” fender badging finish off the exterior design details.

BMW 6-Series Cabrio Hamann

German tuner Haman released details of the full tuning package they have prepared for the new BMW 6 Series convertible. And apart from the slightly ghastly body kit, it’s a good one.

Hamann will provide a professional turbo kit for the V8 engine in the 650 model that turs the power up to 510 hp. Meanwhile  HAMANN Sport Exhaust System with four stainless steel tail pipes provides the roaring sound effects.

BMW 6 Series Cabrio Hamann hamann 6er 300x199

An additional highlight of this program is the three-piece HAMANN alu wheel called the EDITION RACE “ANODIZED”. The matte black anodised spokes and the titanium bolts of the highly polished rim flange emphasise the racing character. Using the latest forging technology, the rims are extremely light and improve handling, acceleration, and deceleration behaviour due to reduced, unsprung masses. The wheel/tyre combination is offered with 9Jx21 inch wheels and 255/30ZR21 tyres in the front. The rear is fitted with 11Jx21 rims and tyres size 295/25ZR21. The HAMANN Sport Maxx tyres supplied by technology partner Dunlop provide the necessary grip to the road.

It’s brilliant package, but as mentioned the body kit could have been better. The back’s alright, but the front-end is just plain hideous.
