Porsche Panamera Turbo gets a Hamann-Style Makeover

If you ain't satisfied from Porsche's standard Panamera offerings nor its comprehensive customization program, the tuning specialists at Hamann have put their BMW tunes on the side to work on Stuttgart's sports saloon.
The result is named the Cyrano and it includes both styling and a selection of performance upgrades.
Starting with the exterior, Hamann developed a new wide-body aero package that transforms the looks (for the better or for the worse, we'll let you be the judge of that) of the Panamera.
It includes a wider front bumper with additional vents on both corners, a new hood with vents, widened front and rear fenders with –you guessed it- vents, side skirts with –come on, do we really need to tell you?- vents, a restyled rear bumper which much to our surprise, gets…additional vents, and finally, a large rear wing to eliminate the chance you will go airborne.
The Cyrano also gains smoked headlamps and tail lamps along with bespoke exhaust pipes and new 22-inch rims in tires size 265/30 up front and 305/25 at the back.
In addition, Hamann offers an electronic module for the air suspension that lowers the ride height by up to 30mm, while it is also developing an engine kit for the Turbo model that includes a new ECU and sports exhaust system, which will lift the V8's output by 80HP and 120Nm to 580HP and 820Nm (604.8 lb-ft) respectively.
As for the interior, Hamann's comprehensive program includes a full leather or Alcantara treatment in many available colors, an aluminum pedal set and bespoke trim accents.
