Opinions about the BMW X6 are split around and this teaser from Lumma Design hasn’t helped. The German tuning haus will be unveiling a production model of its CLR X 650 at the Paris Motor Show later this year, and much like the standard X6, you’ll either love it or loathe it.
FUTURISTIC SUV – BMW X6 IN LUMMA DESIGN BODYKIT
What isn’t up for debate is the CLR X 650’s aggressive demeanor. If the nuclear mishap hue isn’t enough to catch your attention, then the new fascia equipped with super-sized air dams, the side skirts, rear fender vents and revised mirrors will keep your wandering eyes in check. The whole package is slammed by 40mm over a set of 23-inch bespoke black rolling stock, while the interior is expected to get a color-matched instrument panel, aluminum pedals and a new steering wheel.
Even those of us partial to the X6’s proportions aren’t convinced that Lumma is doing the SAV concept right. But we have to admit that its revised stance compliments a few of the pseudo-‘utes characteristics, even if it does remove the minimal amount of utility that was there to begin with.
The tuning folks over at Lumma Design have announced the world premiere of the new BMW X6-based CLR X 650 GT at the Geneva Auto Salon which opens up on March 3. As with all tuning proposals from the German firm, the BMW CLR X 650 GT’s styling is a case of love it or loathe it. The aerodynamic pack adorns the X6 with several components including a new front bumper with a carbon fiber lip spoiler, wider fenders, side skirts, new rear bumper and a carbon fiber boot wing.
Additionally, the roof is finished in a black matt color while the X6 rides on 23-inch bicolor alloy wheels shod in high performance tires size 315/25-23. Other components offered include lowered suspension (35mm) and while the company also upgrades the X6’s interior with performance-sports seats upholstered with leather and suede and a sport steering wheel with shift indicator display.
The wide body kit is the most obvious change that you can notice, among many other modifications. In fact, you have to know the X6 pretty well in order to be sure that the BMW X6 LUMMA Design CLR X 650 is based on this car. The pictures can say it all when it comes to aspect: 23 inch wheels, lower suspension and great muffler tips. Under the hood, the BMW X6 LUMMA Design CLR X 650 has a turbocharged 4.4 Liter V8, ready to take on any SUV opponent that you can think of.
The car is quite special and not many tuning companies can do what Lumma Desing did with the BMW X6 LUMMA Design CLR X 650.
