Yesterday I featured a Bentley Continental with a Veilside kit and today I wanted to show another take on the widebody GT. This one is from German tuner Hamann who is a well known BMW tuner that has recently branched out to other manufacturers as well.
Overall, I like the look of this kit over the Veilside one. The front bumper has a better design and flows better with the rest of the car, it also has integrated LED lights giving it a more modern touch. The fender flares are more subtle on this car but still makes a statement when you notice how wide this car is, the rears are able to fit an 11″ wide rear wheel wrapped in a 315/25 series tire!
I like the wing on the Veilside version, but the design of the rear bumper flows with the exhaust cleaner on the Hamann. If I had to choose between the two designs the Hamann appeals to me more because it straddles the line of simple and aggressive while the Veilside look is more of a wild statement piece.
The wheels on this car are 22″ ADV.1 that are brushed gunmetal with a matte black lip and pair up with the matte gunmetal color of this car perfectly. The seller doesn’t specify if this car has been painted or a wrap has been chosen for the exterior but does the modifications cost over $50k.
The sellers car was apparently used in an ADV.1 ad and having these professional shots in the ad definitely does this car justice. The interior has been kept stock and is super luxuries with burled walnut wood and leather everywhere.
