2009 Mercedes-Benz G 55 AMG Hamann Typhoon from Specialty Car Craft

The Mercedes G55 AMG had been made up with a package named Typhoon by tuning firm Hamann. G-Power have now come up with a package that is different in feature but with the same name for the BMW X5M and X6M cars. The tuning kit from Hamann had a massive aerodynamic kit and two performance upgrades. And now, the G55 has been further modified by tuning firm Specialty Car Craft to suit to the tastes of its three times World Martial Arts Champion client Anton Kasabov.

The original kit came with an optimized air flow system, two LED daytime running lights integrated in the front spoiler, a roof spoiler, a newly designed rear skirt with the integrated diffuser. The radiator grill, headlight protective grid, mirror cases, door handles, air inlets in the side wings, bonnet air blind have all been made up of carbon fiber. The hood, grill, tires and most other exterior have a red highlight against a black paint background. Details of the modification that has been affected further to this base kit is not yet known.

The two engine option that has been included by Hamann in its G55 tuning kit would surely be considered by Specialty Car Craft and their client Anton Kasabov for implementation in their work. The package incorporates the option of going for a 35 hp boost or the 600 hp and 576 lb ft torque which comes with the installation of the HM600 performance kit when applied on the 5.4 liter engine. Once the performance kit has been installed the SUV races on to a top speed of 162 mph while the 0 to 60 mph dash comes up in 5.1 seconds.

Unfortunately, no one else will ever get to have anything of this as the project is a one off for the single client Kasabov and the kit would not be available for implementation on any other car.
