2007 Lumma Design BMW M6 “CLR 600”

Lumma Design lends a hand to BMW M6

On the face of it, it looks like a Bolide from an Italian luxury smithy. Then it lets you recognize it as a very authentic Bavarian missile. The initial optics of the BMW M6 has changed considerably to suit the needs of a race-worthy layout for a car of its size. The modification called “CLR 600” sits lower, is broader and has a more aggressive, but attractive look due to its modified features and attachments. “With our new body kit, we have been able to keep up with the desires of many M6 drivers”, says designer Horst Lumma. The M6 comes with spoilers, blinds, bonnet, tailgate and even interior parts on request, all made of the super light and easily colorable Carbon look that helps greatly reduce the standard dead weight of approx. 1.8 tons.

Order your body kit for the M6 from Lumma Design and you'll get a front spoiler bumper with park distance control and headlight washing system, mudguard extensions in the front and back, doorsills with compressed-air brake shafts and rear aprons with air diffuser.

And just this basic configuration would provoke envious looks from anyone, assures Horst Lumma. The real kick would be delivered only by some small, but fine add-ons and modifications. That would include the rear spoiler and a reinforced (carbon-fiber) roof, a racing or sports brake system, 20 inch wheels with 255 or 305 performance tires or the V-max suspensions. The car's override draws a top speed of 300 kmph (186 mph approx.) out of the 5 liter, 40-valve V-10 engine. If this feature were not there, the engine would have been pretty unimpressive, says Lumma; a very reasonable stance to the brilliant performance of this engine. And last but not the least, the 507 hp of this car of the M series produce a maximum torque of 520 Nm and accelerate the M6 in 4.6 seconds from 0-100kmph (0- 62mph).
