Not only Brabus dare spicing up the McMerc SLR. Now also Hamann Motorsport present a pimped out example to showcase their range for the super car. However, Hamann's programme is more extensive than the competitor's. At least the exterior is more conspicuous, but not necessarily nicer. Of course, that's a matter of taste! Hamann put 21inch wheels to it, Brabus costumers get 20 inch 'only'.

Name of the conversion is Volcano. Despite this name, it is clearly faster than sluggish lava. 700hp and 830Nm are maximum rates that indicate how rapidly it could accelerate. 3.6 seconds are claimed for the standard sprint to 100kph. At impressive 348kph air drag stops this process, under the condition the tuners are right in specifying this rate as top speed.

Besides other measures, also the exhaust system has been modified. The side pipes make this clear. A further remarkable detail is the second water pump to ensure sufficient engine cooling. To refine the cabin, not only Alcantara and aluminium is used but also a material that's already applied at the exterior add-on parts: Carbon.

Eventually the thing's slightly eccentric styling might not be to everyones taste but in view of the Mercedes McLaren SLR's rareness, hitting a lottery's jackpot is more likely than seeing Hamann's Volcano on the road. However, we presume that most of us would anyway prefer winning the lottery.
