Hamann Typhoon

Article file under

The German tuning firm Hamann has just revealed a new tuning kit for the all-terrain Mercedes Benz G55 AMG. Thanks to a few aftermarket performance products, the Hamann Typhoon is now able to sprint from 0 to 60 MPH in just 5.1 seconds, unbelievable performance for an off-roader. But after all, the G is the Austrian Military’s favorite Fast Attack Vehicle.

From the outside, Hamann has upgraded the Typhoon with an oversized grill, carbon fiber for the mirrors, door handles and fender vents. There is a new front spoiler that lowers the front end of the vehicle giving it a more sporty appearance, just like the rear wing. The most impressive features of the Typhoon are the rims, measuring in at 24 inches in diameter, not only are they huge, but the black offsets the cream exterior perfectly.

The interior has been recovered in plush red fabric on the door panels, headliner, arm rests and seat inserts. The interior is further dressed up with a few carbon fiber trim pieces as well as a couple more red accents. Aside from the wild materials, for the most part, the Typhoon’s interior is exactly like it left the factory. Typhoon drivers will be further pleased with the tuning work, as the engine now puts out 600 HP and 576 lb-ft of torque, and like we said before, can go from 0 to 60 MPH in 5.1 seconds and hit a top speed of 162 MPH. Pretty impressive for an all-terrain machine.
