While Mercedes-Benz is still gearing up to unveil the Mercedes-AMG G63 at the 2018 Geneva Motor Show this month, well-known tuner Lumma Design is already previewing a bespoke tuning program for the new AMG version of the Mercedes G-Class. This preview comes in the form of the new Widebody Lumma G-Class.
As its name indicates, the Widebody Lumma G-Class is fitted with a widebody kit, as complemented by heavy-duty alloy wheels and a number of performance upgrades. It is derived from the AMG G63, which boasts of delivering up to 585 hp of output and up to 850 Nm. While Lumma Design might not be the only tuner that would take on the new AMG G63, its extensive personalization program for the luxurious G-Class performance flagship could be very appealing to those who have extra money to spend.
The new AMG G63 performance flagship is actually a fusion of robustness, near indestructibility, passion, perfection and power. This is why Lumma chose this performance flagship as the base for the Lumma CLR G770 widebody kit. One of Lumma Design’s latest creation, the CLR G770 is composed of different parts and components made from ultra-light carbon fiber. These include carbon fiber body panels as well as a full carbon fiber bonnet that features specially designed vents. The CLR G770 kit also includes carbon fiber wheel arches that extend the width of the AMG 63 by 40mm on each side.
Moreover, the Lumma CLR G770 kit features a sportier front bumper spoiler assembly marked by a carbon fiber center section as well as by twin sets of daytime running lights on each side. Further additions include distinct side skirts, side exiting exhaust pipes as well as square exhaust outlets neatly integrated into the new side panels. Carbon fiber also wraps the door mirror caps, door handles and side moldings, while the new rear bumper boasts of a carbon fiber center section. Also made from carbon fiber are elements like the spare wheel cover, roof spoiler (with additional brake light) and roof bar (with extra daytime running lights).
Meanwhile, the large carbon fiber wheel arches are home to 23- or 24-inch diameter alloy rims, which are in particular, heavy-duty versions of the newly developed Lumma CLR Racing 2 light-alloy wheel. These heavy duty wheels are strong enough to support the weight of the G-Class, and the pieces that comes along with Lumma CLR G770 widebody kit.
The Lumma CLR Racing 2 light-alloy rims -- available in anthracite finish with central locking optics in 11.0J x 23 inches – are shod with 305/35ZR23 tires. For those who are looking for larger and more prominent wheels, Lumma Design is also making available the Lumma CLR 24 RS rims. The Widebody Lumma G-Class is fitted with 10.5J x 24-inch wheels on the front with 295/30ZR24 tires, as well as 13.0J x 24-inch rims on the rear with 355/25ZR24 rubber.
The Widebody Lumma G-Class also features bespoke sports exhaust system (with flap control) that amplifies the audio track of the AMG G63 4.0 liter bi-turbo V8 engine. Interestingly, Lumma Design is working on an engine upgrade as part of the tuning program.
Customers could choose from a wide array of individual interior options for their AMG G63. They could opt for a new trim with finest materials, an aluminum pedal set with non-slip rubber inserts, or the Lumma branded carpet mats with real leather edging. Customers may also avail of an optional suspension lowering kit.
