Geneva debut for Lumma modified BMW X6 M

Lumma is a German tuning company that specializes in the modification of the models produced by practically all the German automakers, including Mercedes, Porsche, BMW, Audi, Opel and Volkswagen. Their latest project is named Lumma CLR X 650 M and is based on the BMW X6 M.

Now, the Russian distributor of Lumma, TopCar, has posted a new set of pictures. From what we can see in these pictures, the Lumma CLR X 650 M based on the BMW X6 M has some interesting features, including 23 inch wheels, a massive rear spoiler, a black grille, a rear diffuser, extended fender flares, aerodynamic side skirts as well as new bumpers.

The Lumma CLR X 650 M is expected to reach a maximum speed of 312 km/h (194 mph) while accelerating from 0 to 100 km/h in 4.5 seconds thanks to a modified version of the 4.4 liter twin turbo V8 engine, that should have an output of 650 horsepower and 830 Nm of torque, which would be an improvement of 150 Nm of torque and 95 horsepower over the original output of the engine found in the BMW X6 M.

Next month, at the 2010 Geneva Motor Show, the Lumma CLR X 650 M based on the BMW X6 M will make its world debut.

My personal opinion is that the BMW X6 M is a very ugly car as it is, maybe the ugliest car in production currently. Thus, the body kit from Lumma only makes it more hideous, if this could be possible. The only good thing I can say about it is that I appreciate the nice performance of the engine, as Lumma turn out to be good at pumping more power into an engine.
