2012 Hamann Hawk Mercedes-Benz SLS Roadster

The 2012 Hamann Hawk Mercedes-Benz SLS Roadster is an incredibly powerful sports car.

The original Mercedes-Benz car has been given several design changes, the most significant one being the installation of a 6.2-liter Hamann engine.

To help squeeze every last available bit of energy from the engine, the car is fitted with a special sports air filter and a high-performance, stainless steel exhaust system.

Performance

The end result is an engine that can generate an amazing 636 hp and 501 lb-ft of torque. Because the engine is installed in a car built from ultra-modern materials, meaning the weight is greatly reduced, the car has a top speed of 198mph. When set in race mode, the car can go from 0-60 in 3.5 seconds.

Red & Black

The visual design of the car is based around a red and black theme, both externally and internally. The two black, leather-covered bucket seats have red trim. They are separated by a console made from red carbon and red trim is used on the floor, the dashboard and the instrument panel.

Red colored carbon is also used to decorate the door sill protectors, the door handles and the air inlets.

Interior

The steering wheel in the original model has been replaced with a smaller wheel that has been ergonomically designed. The pedals are made from black, anodized aluminum. Externally, the car has been given a predominately red matte lacquer, although the hood and the 21" wheels are black.

Exterior

In front, the 2012 Hamann Hawk Mercedes-Benz SLS Roadster has a front apron instead of the bumper on the original car. This apron gives better road holding because its shape helps to counteract lifting forces on the front axle.

The air inlets are considerably larger than on the original, reflecting the bigger demand for air the Hamann engine has. The addition of LED lighting strips adds to the overall impression of a car with improved dynamics.

  • That is a beautiful car. Not exactly what I think of when I think of a Benz, but still, nice.

    Especially like the red trim on the interior.
