Standing out at the Geneva Motor Show is extremely hard to do, particularly if the car in question isn’t a hypercar. However, tuning company Hamann did manage to stand out at the show thanks to its one-off BMW M4 Art car put on display. Created in collaboration with designer Timo Wuerz, the Hamann M4 art car is exceptionally eye-catching and Russell McKellar recently arranged a photoshoot of the bespoke M4 in Monaco.
The largest German national subscription daily newspaper, Süddeutsche Zeitung, once called Timo Wuerz the “rock star of the comic scene”. The designer, who made Hamburg his city of choice, individualises cars and lifestyle products, turning them into unique pieces bearing his distinctive touch. As homage to the art of engine construction, the colours of the “M” logo served as source of inspiration.
Exclusively for the Hamann sportscar, Wuerz has created a fulminant energy explosion, perfectly setting the stage for the vehicle concept’s characteristics. The work was transferred to the car on a sophisticated printed wrap.
While the standard BMW M4 pumps out an impressive 425 hp from its twin-turbocharged 3.0-litre six-cylinder, Hamann wanted more for its art car. As a result, it has lifted peak power to 517 hp between 1800 and 5500 rpm and 700 Nm of torque.
