Piece d' (Wind) Resistance: Hamman's M6 Body Kit

Never one to shrunk from tarting a BMW M6 to within an inch of its life, Hamann created a new body kit for BMW's bi-portal bulkmeister. Note particularly the major flaring going on around the wheelular region, including brake-cooling ducts wide enough to make foie gras from errant waterfowl.

Hamann Wry: Lamborghini Tuner Gets "Other" Lambo Doors

Regular Lamborghini-style scissor doors weren't enough for the customization wonks at Germany's Hamann tuning house. In working up their worked-over version of the Lamborghini Gallardo Spider, they created their own, proprietary version of the portals, which open outward like the wings of a black-tailed… » 8/08/06 4:01pm 8/08/06 4:01pm
