Founded in 1986 by Richard Hamann, Hamann Motorsport has been personalizing and customizing a plethora of European makes including Audi, Aston Martin, Bentley, BMW, Mini, Ferrari, Fiat, Jaguar, Land Rover, Maserati, Mercedes-Benz, Rolls-Royce, Porsche and Lamborghini ever since. Even though they have a collection of goods for all these various makes, Hamann is best-known for its BMW tuning programs. Much like Brabus is for Mercedes-Benz, Hamann is for BMW. So it’s no surprise that the German tuner has just released a new list of modifications for the newly face lifted BMW Z4 Roadster.

For those that are fans of Hamann’s styling, there’s simply no way to mistake it for something else. There is a sense of consistency in all their products from their subtle lip kits to full bumper replacements. The newest edition to their catalog is for the E89, with a collection of goods to not only look good, but to go fast. Your typical front bumper, side skirts, rear valence and rear spoiler is available in addition to (yet again) LED day lights in the front bumper.

Under the hood, performance enhancements boost horsepower from 306 to 360 and torque jumps from approximately 295 ft-lbs to close to 400 ft-lbs. The stylish matte black wheels are available in a 20-inch variety – staggered of course. (We really love the way these rollers look, but Hamann seems to stick them on every model.) The package also gets the car stiffer and closer to the ground by 30mm.

The hard top roadster from BMW is looking more and more appealing with each generation, and Hamann’s enhancements only make it more beautiful.

Check out the official press release after the break.
