Following numerous tests, LUMMA Design has developed modified engine electronics especially for the BMW TwinTurbo eight cylinder gasoline engine, which mobilizes the potential power of the V8 Powertrain. In place of the 408 BHP (300 kW) found in the series models, the eight-cylinder engine now produces 490 BHP (360 kW). In comparison to the series model (600 Nm), the maximum torque now lies at a powerful 720 Newtonmeters. The top speed has been increased to 160 mph. A flow-optimized muffler with four stainless steel tail pipes, each 90 millimeters in diameter, adds to the sound of the performance-enhanced eight-cylinder, providing a robust “sports sound.” The wheel housings are embellished with LUMMA GTB Monoblock alloy rims with Vredestein Ultra-High-Performance 255/35-20 tires on the front and 285/30-20 at the drive shaft. Lowered by 20 millimeters, the 9 and 10.5 x 20 inch wheels in a racing spokes design, with their black surface finish, look even more sporty underneath the mudguardsfenders. An attractive contrast to the dark rims is provided by the painted yellow brake callipers.
LUMMA Design has designed the interior of the 650i Cabriolets to match the sporty and powerful exterior. Materials of the highest quality, traditional hand-crafted upholstery and impeccable workmanship form the basis for a perfect interior range. In the CLR 600 GT, sportiness meets exclusivity. Using alcantara and leather, the automobile tuning company has embellished not only the seats, the door panels and the ergonomically shaped sports steering wheel – set of pedals made from aluminum, including foot rests, velour floor and trunk mats with a leather trim and interior trims in embossed carbon leather round off the range of elegant accessories from LUMMA Design.
With the world premiere of the LUMMA CLR 600 GT at the Auto Salon Exhibition in Geneva, BMW’s desire for a perfect, sporty cabriolet has been skilfully fulfilled by LUMMA Design.
