For an affluent motorist looking for a top-of-the-line luxury automobile, there are only a few choices: the Rolls-Royce Phantom, Bentley Arnage and the Maybach. If you find the Bentley to be too archaic and the Maybach little more than a gussied-up Mercedes S-Class, then the Phantom is clearly your choice. The thing is, it's also bound to be your wealthy friends' choices as well. So if you want yours to stand out a little, you can now turn to German tuning house Hamann, which is offering a range of modifications to the Phantom saloon and Drophead Coupe convertible to give it a little extra attitude. The package includes 23-inch wheels to replace the 21-inch rims on the stock Phantom, a custom steering wheel for a more sporting feel, and engine modifications to bring output from the 6.75-liter V12 up from 460 horsepower and 531 lb-ft of torque to 535hp/615lb-ft. With all the extra power and the limiter removed, the Hamann Phantom is ready to cruise to an effortless 300 km/h (187 mph).
