The 2011 BMW X6 doesn't exactly need any help in the ridiculous department. From its questionable purpose and usefulness to its enormous, bulbous proportions and Herculean power figures, this thing has elective purchase written all over it.
Now, though, thanks to Germany's Lumma Design, it is – you guessed it – more ridiculous. To start with, the company bolted on huge 22-inch wheels to complement a complete body kit. Inside, there's a custom dash, steering wheel and sport seats, all in two-tone leather.
Under the hood, Lumma has cranked the X6's diesel up to 340 horses, which should give your two feet plenty to think about when you're in stunna mode. Full press blast after the jump.
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 talk is about the BMW X6, in-plant called E71.
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.
The LUMMA complete tune implies front spoiler bumper with rather enlarged air inlets. Additional double lamps in LED technology and LED day running light are of course. 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.
Proprietary rims named LUMMA Racing CLR 22 in 10" and 12x22" with tires in 295/30-22 in front and 335/25-22 rear together with the 40 millimeters (1.5") to build the road contact. In yellow painted brake calipers are available also in reinforced execution.
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.
LUMMA front and rear sport seats (rear seats as single ones) with backrest shells in structured carbon leather, matching to the interior colors instruments and seat belts, leather upholstered interior borders, the aluminum pedals set with slip-resistant rubber dots and lit door sill panels with LUMMA logo and, finally, the foot mat and boot floor mat with real leather bordering complete the interior packet.
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.
