First pics: Lumma BMW X6
Should your business operate in the sphere of modifying vehicles, resculpting a BMW X6 won’t bear much fruit. That’s because it hogs up most of the world’s ugly.
German tuner Lumma Design missed that memo. Which explains why it’s added a front spoiler with swollen air inlets, twin LED running lights, weird eyebrow things and a carbon boot spoiler to Munich’s great-to-drive-but-challenging-to-look at SuperSUVCoupe.
There’s also an enormous wide arch kit, enflamed side skirts and an extremely modified rear apron-cum-diffuser. The chrome kidney grills have also been daubed with matte black paint.
Underneath, there’s a set of Racing CLR 22x10in front and 22x12in rear wheels of Lumma’s design, which don’t do a terribly good job of disguising the yellow painted brake calipers.
The Lumma X6 has been played with under the bonnet too, with power from BMW’s fabulous 3.0-litre diesel boosted to 340bhp. Lumma uses a fancypants d-box, which is a power module for the accelerator pedal that provides a better throttle response. There’s also the mandatory quadruple big-bore exhaust malarkey.
Inside, it’s similarly… provocative. There’s an ergonomically formed and upholstered sport steering wheel, the seats have had two-tone leather with contrasting stitching stretched over them and the backrest shells are made in what the company calls ‘structured carbon leather’.
The instruments and seat belts have also been colour-coordinated along with the mats, which are all bordered with leather. You’ll also find illuminated sill panels, which describe the Lumma logo in glowing, vodka-bar green.
The company describes this as an X6 with ‘a sensibly more graceful manner, without having lost any spark of joy of sportive auto car drive.’
So, what do you guys think?
