Range Rover Hamann Mystere

Hamann applied a shiny pink coat on a 2013 Range Rover which arrived this week in Geneva. One of the most striking cars of the Swiss auto show is without any doubt Hamann's Range Rover. Aside from the pink wrap job, the British premium SUV wears a wide body kit that brings a new hood, front spoiler, front bumper, fenders, side sills and a redesigned rear bumper. Compared to the standard model, this modified Range Rover is 80mm wider.
While most of the body parts have a mirror-like surface, some of the upper ones are covered by a matte-like texture. This Range Rover is 40mm lower thanks to the new custom suspension parts and rides on Unique Forged or Edition Race wheels wrapped around in Continental tires measuring 305/30/23 on all four corners.
A similar mirror grey wrap was used by Hamann for their BMW M6 Coupe (Mirr6r) which is also being showcased in Geneva.

Based on the latest BMW M6 Coupe, this custom version has received a new aerodynamic package with wider wings, rear spoiler, air intakes, side skirts and a built-in carbon fiber rear diffuser. The latter works together with the carbon fiber rear spoiler to guarantee an optimal airflow. We should mention the diffuser houses two stainless steel tailpipes on both sides.

Alpina XD3 Biturbo

Alpina has presented its own take on the BMW X3 today at the kickoff of the 2013 Geneva Motor Show. At its heart is a straight-six, full-aluminum 3.0-liter engine with two turbochargers, common-rail direct injection and variable turbine geometry. It has a maximum output of 350 HP (257 kW) at 4,000 rpm and a peak torque of 700 Nm (516 lb-ft) reached between 1,500 and 3,000 rpm.
Despite the powerful engine, the Alpina XD3 Biturbo manages to have a fuel consumption of only 6.8 liters / 100 km (41.5 mpg US or 34.5 mpg UK) while CO2 emissions stand at 180 g/km. This was possible thanks to the ZF eight-speed automatic transmission designed specifically for this model.
Other highlights of this heavily modified X3 include electronically-adjustable dampers, 20-inch Alpina Classic wheels with Michelin Pilot Super Sport low-profile tires, custom exhaust manifold, stainless steel exhaust system with dual double-ended tailpipes, along with several interior enhancements such as a sport steering wheel with blue/green stitching, door sills, floor mats, gear indicator and a digital speed read-out.
