Mercedes-Benz G-Class becomes Hamann Typhoon

The aging-but-popular Mercedes-Benz G-Class is also becoming popular among German tuners. Respected Mercedes-Benz tuners Hamann is now offering their own version of the G-Wagen, called the Typhoon.


Based on the G 55 AMG, the Hamann Typhoon features 600 hp and 576 lb-ft of torque, thanks to a high performance HM600 power kit that includes new engine electronics, a beefier supercharger-belt pulley set, and a revised transmission with its own oil cooler. The net result of all these changes is a 0-60 mph time of 5.0 seconds and a top speed of 162 mph.

Hamann’s engineers have also tweaked the legendary Geländewagen’s styling by adding carbon fiber mirrors, door handles, fender vents, and a massive front grille. Other exterior design changes include a front spoiler with LED-daytime running lights, a revised rear bumper with an integrated diffuser, a six-tip 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.
