Lumma CLR X650 based on 2011 Bmw X6

Article by Christian A., on February 13, 2011

The aftermarket industry will be represented well in the Geneva Motor Show. Recently, reports came out that Lumma Design will debut the Porsche Cayenne-based CLR 558 GT at the show. Lumma will also bring a modification pack for the BMW X6, in the form of the CLR X650 kit. The X6 competes against the Cayenne.

Similar to what Lumma did with the Cayenne, its aftermarket program for the X6 will use a diesel engine for the aftermarket program.

Lumma will install its D-Box engine modification kit, including a sport exhaust system with four tail pipes, an ECU remap and a custom accelerator pedal module. In stock form, the X6’s 3.0l diesel unit delivers 306 hp but after being modified, it now offers 340 hp.

The Sports Activity Coupe now rides 40 mm lower after having been fitted with a modified suspension. It features 22-inch rims with 295/30 tires for the front axle and 335/25 tires for the rear axle.

The X6 comes with an aggressive widebody kit that features a front spoiler, rear bumper, side skirts, bonnet and rear spoiler. It also receives carbon fiber applications, for the rear lip, mirror covers, front kidneys and headlamp visors.

For the interior, passengers get a black and beige upholstery leather/Alacantra finish with diamond-shaped stitching, an Alcantara finish for the plastics, a sports steering wheel, carbon trimming, color coordinated instruments and aluminum pedals. Sports seats have also been installed.

At a glance, the front end undeniably reflects the powerful and dynamic nature of the new BMW X6. Since more surfaces are finished in body color, the front end of the X6 now appears lower and more dynamic. Furthermore, the dynamic nature of this sports activity coupe is clearly reflected in the design of the hood and in the vertically positioned BMW kidney grille, which features titanium-colored fins (xDrive50i).

These fins are finished in black on the xDrive35i. The front end of the new X6 also features large air intakes positioned far to the outside, a placement that does not only allow them to provide necessary cooling for the engines but also helps emphasize the vehicle’s powerful stance on the road.

These air intakes interact with the side panels that extend to the inside over the headlights, thereby providing orientation towards the wheels of the X6. Furthermore, the headlights also merge in a sweeping line into the side panels, with the surface of the engine compartment lid split by lines narrowing towards the BMW kidney grille.

Meanwhile, the sides of the new BMW X6 expose its distinct proportions. Its short front overhang underscores its dynamic look while the roof line that narrows towards the rear and the long rear overhang boost the vehicle’s stretched coupe silhouette.

On the other hand, the side window frame at the rear features a "counter-swing" at the bottom of the D-pillar and chrome surrounds on the windows – elements that set apart the BMW X6 xDrive50i from the xDrive35i.

BMW X6 LUMMA VERSION

The vehicle that BMW likes to present as SAC (Sport Activity Coupé) is in principle a mix of SUV (Sport Utility Vehicle) and Coupé crossover. Shown for the first time in 2007 at Frankfurt/Main, the serial production started in 2008 at Spartanburg/USA, for the Asiatic destinations it was produced at Avtotor in the Russian Kaliningrad.

The wide across the German borders well known LUMMA car tuning company has created the LUMMA CLR X 650, based on the first BMW with Dynamic Performance Control (DPC provides for the smooth repartition of the driving moments between left and right rear wheel), thus giving him a hardly to beat curve dynamism, whereby practically each detail of the car has been involved in the tuning process.

Head light "eye brows" and mirror hatches, the rear spoiler lip are, as well as the sportive look engine bonnet, made in carbon. Besides, the beefy car body extension all around and the side skirts with brake cooler optics have extremely modified rear apron with diffuser demanding attention. Down tuned tail lamps is another attraction. The sportive look is accomplished by the matt black front kidney grille frame and the stripe design.

The serial diesel engine comes along with 225 kW / 306 hp / 600 Nm. The LUMMA Design d-box „generates" 250 kW / 340 hp / 670 Nm. A power module for the gas pedal provides for the better and faster gas reaction and, thus, for the optimal acceleration. The also proprietary sport exhaust system in X6 M look with 4x100 mm tail pipes in black racing optics with LUMMA logo is quite powerful voiced. For gasoline models, there is a special sport sound available.

The view into the car offers besides the ergonomically formed and upholstered sport steering wheel a bicolor interior fitting in rhomb optics with contrasting ornamental seams.

Off-the-shelf, the BMW X6 is a bursting of highlights heavy weight of car. After "overhauling" by the team of Horst LUMMA, nevertheless, it comes along in a sensibly more graceful manner, without having lost any spark of joy of sportive auto car drive.
