Lumma Design CLR 550 R upgrades the Porsche Cayenne GTS

Article by Christian A., on August 29, 2010

An extensively revided Porsche Cayenne GTS will be revealed by Lumma Design, a German tuner at this year's Essen Motor Show in Germany. Schedules to be introduced near the end of the month, the Lumma Design CLR 550 R takes the latest Porsche Cayenne GTS and gives it a new aerodynamic profile, as well as enhanced power and handling to make the Cayenne GTS even more powerful.

The modification that is most eye catching wide body kit, which provides the SUV a more ferocious appearance. Decorated in a simple monochrome color scheme, the body accessories include a larger, open-mouthed grille to feed air into the revised engine and display an even more intimidating appearance.

There are also new side skirts, front and rear spoilers, vents on the hood and a very visible rear diffuser in between the custom exhaust tips. In the meantime, under the hood Lumma Design begins with Porsche's already potent 4.8L V8 engine, which in standard form generates almost 400hp.

For the CLR 550 R, Lumma includes a supercharger, which generates in excess of 50% more horsepower compared to the stock Cayenne GTS. All 612hp (456kW) is conveyed to the road through custom 23 inch wheels with very low-profile sports rubber fundamentally painted onto the rims.

Lumma installs a powerful braking system not only to provide improved stopping power, but also to help the heavy Cayenne cope with the power increase. This is decidedly a good idea considering the speed at which 612 horses could bring the sports SUV.

The car's driving height has also been significantly decreased and a sports suspension system is put in place to prevent it from rolling around during corners. There is a two-tone leather interior and a new sports steering wheel, as well as a highly developed telematics system.
