Part 2: Lumma Design CLR X 650 M based on Bmw X6 M

Article by Christian Andrei, on August 27, 2010

A slightly revised design on the Lumma Design CLR X 650 M has recently been completed by the engineers in Winterlingen, Germany, based on the BMW X6 M. The SUV clearly gets its inspiration from the 1980s-era Rieger widebody tuning jobs, giving the SUV a look that may not be pretty but is definitely cool.

The latest model features a 3% rise in power, boosting engine output to 670hp (493 kW). Instead of maxing out at about 830 Nm, torque will now peak at 850 Nm.

These figures stand for a 20% increase in hp, and a 25% improvement in torque when compared to the standard BMW X6 M.

The difference offered by this current Lumma Design CLR X 650 M package over the old one is its new high-performance exhaust system that is finished with quad tailpipes.

With these specifications, the crossover becomes capable of hitting speeds of 194 mph (312 km/h).

When it comes to the exterior, the vehicle gets a redesigned rear skirt and wing, along with the already-available three-section front spoiler with daytime LED runners, flared fenders, and revised sidesills. A new carbon and Kevlar hood is also attached.

The crossover is lowered by 45 mm via lowering springs. The engineers added Racing IV alloy wheels. These 9.5x20-inch units are covered in performance tires. Interior changes include quilted leather upholstery, carbon trim, and aluminum pedals.

Inside, the sporty yet chic cabin of the Lumma CLR X 650 M features aluminum pedals and aluminum footrests, as well as an improved speedometer that displays speeds of up to 360 km/h. Its cabin also features a number of Carbon applications.

The carbon on the vehicle's sports steering wheel, the center console, the automatic selector lever on the dashboard and the doors could be lined with the color preferred by the customer. Moreover, the Lumma CLR X 650 M comes with the “Exclusive” full leather interior, featuring stitched diamond patterns and inlaid colored seams.

Since all of the tuning components of LUMMA Design come with a TÜV technical component report, they could be easily included in the car documents. The assembly of these components could be undertaken by LUMMA Design or any workshop at reasonable package prices.

Press Release


LUMMA Design presents motor sport experience in a super XXL format. The German custom body-designer reworked the BMW X6 and increased the performance up to 670 hp (493 kW). This visual transformation is not reserved solely for the top model X6 M, but is available for all models too. Thus, the drivers of all X6 gas and diesel engines benefit from the massive body kit, powerful quad-exhaust system and the sporty and luxurious interior.

The showstopper for LUMMA CLR X 650 M is the new body kit. The front spoiler with the three voluminous air ducts and the vertically mounted LED daytime running lights already ensures the confident road presence, supported by fender extensions in the front and the rear, side skirts and panels with air ducts on the rear doors. The redesigned rear skirt with the generous dimensions of the diffuser, the rear hatch element and the large rear wing perfectly complete the stunning effect.

Furthermore, the new bonnet gives the CLR X 650 M an additional sporty look. LUMMA Design makes it out of Carbon and Kevlar, which decrease the weight and lowers the centre of gravity of the car, and the materials ensure a high amount of stability in spite of being lightweight.

The lowering springs for the air suspension bring the LUMMA X6 closer to the asphalt by 45 millimetres. The RACING IV light alloy wheels act as an advantage. The multipart look of the rims in 9.5x20 inches with the stainless steel outer well is covered with 275/40 wide ultra-high performance tyres.

The performance enhancement by LUMMA Design keeps the promise of a new design. The interaction of the optimised engine electronics and the new exhaust system catapult the performance of the serial 555 hp (408 kW) to 670 hp (493 kW) and the maximum torque from 680 to 850 Newton metres. The top speed is now at 312 km/h instead of 250 km/h in the standard version.

It is not the X6 M alone that benefits from the LUMMA gas pedal power module (GPM). Each model with electronic gas pedal adapts better to gas with this simple plug-and-play solution.

The sports exhaust system with valve control and four stainless steel pipes with a diameter of 100 millimetres are also available for all models of the BMW X6. Thus LUMMA Design evaluates the diesel-SUV in the same manner as all the petrol models up to the X6 M.

The interior is also sporty and classy with an enhanced speedometer to 360 km/h and aluminium pedals including footrests. The Carbon applications give an agile flair to the inner space with the “Exclusive” full leather interior with stitched diamond patterns and inlaid coloured seams. Lumma lines the carbon on the sports steering wheel, the automatic selector lever on the dashboard, the centre console and the doors with the colour desired by the customer.

All these tuning components of LUMMA Design include a TÜV technical component report, so that they may be easily included in the car documents. Any workshop or even the Winterlingen based LUMMA Design undertake the assembly at attractive package prices.
