Hamann quietly unveiled its McLaren MP4-12C ‘memoR’ project at this year’s Geneva Motor Show, and now the German tuner has released a full gallery of its latest project.

The widebody MP4-12C project may be too wild for some, especially considering how tame the MP4-12C’s styling is compared to Italian supercars. But the vehicle has been a resounding success, especially in America, and there could be a market for the styling package from Hamann.

While purely aesthetic, the tuning kit has influences from the coveted McLaren F1 model while adding some functionality with GT3 race car elements. The package comes with ventilated bumpers, a front splitter, a roof intake, side skirts, rear spoiler, wider rear fenders, and a new rear bumper to blend seamlessly with the wider body.

According to Hamann, the front splitter, side skirts, and rear wing were aerodynamically tuned to provide extra downforce to an already amazing car.

Unfortunately Hamann left the powerplant untouched, which is to be expected considering how potent it is with 592-hp and 443 lb-ft of torque. We’re actually fans of the black and red theme that Hamann chose for this particular project.
