The cult sport car Mercedes SLS AMG, received name Hamann Hawk became the first, and the second – Porsche Cayenne Turbo which have got terrible name Guardian. Hamann engineers know a lot about fast cars, no wonder studio is headed by the famous in the last racer Richard Hamann. Therefore all without an exception "pumped over" Hamann cars are allocated with strongly pronounced sports character and only then a bright exterior and an interior. Though, apparently, character superpenalty Mercedes SLS AMG not to occupy. And with the appearance of a "gull-wing" full order.

As to Hamann Guardian it has been created practically on the same compounding, as Hamann Hawk.
