Hamann Tycoon EVO M: The 670hp BMW X6

By | March 4, 2010

Readers- if up to till this very moment you’ve been unable to figure out the point of a BMW X6 let me make one thing clear: you are not alone. For the most part the entire motoring world cannot see rhyme or reason in this large, powerful and surprisingly incapable SAC (yes, that’s BMW’s own acronym for Sports Activity Coupe). Oh ya- and its expensive. Like $60,000 expensive.

So it was an understandable moment when our jaws hit the floor after seeing the Hamann Tycoon EVO M for the first time at the 2010 Geneva Motor Show. Its outlandish, carbon fiber draped looks beg for attention but the real story lies under the hood (carbon fiber) where 670 furious aftermarket horses wait. 670 horsepower!

As the always sharp guys at AutoBlog pointed out, this is the exact same horsepower as the most powerful Lamborghini ever made, the Murcielago LP670-4 SuperVeloce. And that got its 670hp from a huge 6.5L V12. This X6 (if you can even call it that anymore) is “only” packing a 4.4L twin-turbo V8.

You know, we could go into specs, details, pricing- the lot, but instead I am just going to leave it at this: the Hamann Tycoon EVO M is just like a Las Vegas prostitute. It may be interesting to look at from 50 feet away but if you take it for a spin you’ll probably end up dead.

Would never want to take it for a spin? Are you kidding me Chad? I’m confident every person that reads this blog (including you), if they were given the opportunity to drive this, would do it. In a second.
