Do These Hamann Upgrades Make The Ugly Duckling E63 BMW M6 Any More Desirable?
The second-generation BMW 6-Series, also known as the E63, is considered by many as one of the ugliest BMWs ever produced. While this particular example has undergone a series of modifications, we don’t think they have done it any favors.
For starters, this isn’t just any old 6-Series variant and is in fact an M6. Regardless of how you feel about the styling, it’s hard to deny that the M6’s 5.0-liter naturally aspirated V10 is an absolute gem. Crafted by Hamann, the first change made to this M6 was the fitment of three-piece Schmidt wheels that measure 21×9.5 at the front and 21×10.5 at the rear and are wrapped in 255/30 and 295/25 tires respectively. Helping these wheels stand out are the chrome barrels and black spokes.
Hamann has also fitted the car with KW Variant 3 coilovers that drop the ride height by 45 mm at the front and 35 mm at the rear and possibly improving the car’s handling. Making the exterior of the car even more striking is the front lip spoiler and the rear spoiler.
Rounding out the modifications made to the car is the fitment of a Hamann/Supersprint exhaust that no doubt makes the 5.0-liter V10 sound even better.
The BMW 6-Series has changed quite a lot since production of the E63-generation ended in 2010. It was later replaced by new 6-Series Coupe, Convertible, and Gran Coupe models with a heavily-updated and much more attractive design. BMW then overhauled the car for its fourth generation and now exclusively sells it as a Gran Turismo as the 8-Series has effectively replaced the 6-Series Coupe, Convertible, and Gran Coupe models of old.
