If you like something hunky and muscular. This is the car for you. The Mercedes Gelandewagen also known as G-class. But this one is not the ordinary G-Class. It has got some touches from the famous Mercedes Tuner, Hamman.They had tweaked the original Merc G55 AMGand called it as Hamman Typhoon. A great name indeed.
The Typhoon is set to challenge the 700 hp Brabus G V12 S Biturbo.But in term of power, the Hamman still falls behind with 600 hp (441 kW) and 782 Nm (576 lb-ft) of torque. All the power is possible with the use of a HM600 power kit that includes new engine electronics, a beefier belt pulley set, and a revised transmission with its own oil cooler. With all these performance part on board the 0-100 km/h time had been reduced to 5.1 seconds and the top speed is 261 km/h (162 mph).
Other than the engine, the styling of the Typhoon is also tweaked by Hamman. Carbon fiber is used for the car mirrors, door handles, fender vents, and the massive front grille.Looking from the front there is a spoiler with LED-daytime running lights and from the back, we can see a revised rear bumper with an integrated diffuser. Other modification includes a six tailpipe exhaust system, 24-inch wheels, and a roof-mounted spoiler.
The unique sporting theme continues in the cabin as the Typhoon features a Hamann steering wheel, aluminum pedals, a 24-piece carbon fiber trim set, illuminated stainless steel door sill plates, and exclusive velour upholstery.
