Lumma’s XXL G-Wagen has been re-designed
The new CLR G770 R is supposed to be very different from the CLR G770. But is it?
Apparently, Lumma Design’s new CLR G770 R is completely different to the CLR G770 that went before it. ‘Apparently’ being the operative word there.
Yeah, we might just need your help here. Lumma says that this is “more revolution than evolution” but we’re struggling to spot the big changes. Refresh your memory on the madcap G770 by clicking these blue words, then come back here to let us know how the modded G-Wagens differ.
There are a few very slight differences we know about – the front and rear bumpers have been redesigned and those massive arches (which extend the G’s width by 40mm) are now made from either PUR-RIM plastic or carbon fibre, meaning they can be screwed rather than glued to the body. Lumma says there has been “a multitude of technical and visual innovations compared to the previous model” though. Hmmm.
We were expecting to see a rather hefty power upgrade for the ‘R’, but there isn’t any mention of engine modifications in Lumma’s press release. Presumably buyers can spec the 65bhp and 74lb ft bump that the old version got, though. Although that old one will remain on sale. We’re confused.
Lumma does say you can have the sextuple-exit exhaust from the old car on this version too, but weirdly it’s not fitted to whatever car you see above. That one does have new 24-inch wheels though.
What are we missing, Internet pals? Help us out…
