Filed under: LUMMA Car News | LUMMA Headlines
The label says Porsche and there is Porsche inside, but even after the facelift, it's still an off road vehicle, a little draggy and close-hauled. Individuals which are not satisfied with the standard outfit, now can count on the help of the Winterlinger based Tuner LUMMA Design. With the new designed LUMMA CLR 550 R you can see from distance, here comes a sport SUV, a cut above the rest.

The spectacular body kit is broadening the Sports SUV 5cm per side by fender extensions, the front bumper with it's special designed, new turn signal unit, is adding the CLR 550 R a sportive look, the individual rear bumper, the sport look front hood with air ducts and the sportive side skirts are rounding up the whole package. Result, a real Sports SUV. The legendary LUMMA evil eye headlight eyelids, replenish the sportive look of the LUMMA CLR 550 R.

The matching, new developed and designed wheels in dimension 11x23", LUMMA Racing 3, with Michelin 315/25-23 front and rear, are making out of the CLR 550 R, an individual unicum, state of the art.

In combination with the LUMMA lowering sport suspension, lowering the car approx. 40mm, for cars with and without air ride system, the wheels look even bigger than they are. Positive secondary effect: lower point of gravity and a better handling of the car.

The Porsche GTS V8 is for sure a powerful engine, "but can even more power be a sin?" By reprogramming the electronics in the ECU, LUMMA Design is increasing the power. Another brand new option is the LUMMA GPM (gas pedal power module) for a much better respond of the gas pedal and more dynamic acceleration, a must have for every sport ambitious driver. Easy to install, plug and play, ready to go on the course. If you decide to tune the engine or not, the LUMMA engine optic package, will upgrade the engine compartment to perfection. The eye catcher contains a red coated engine cover with Carbon inlets.

When it comes to sound LUMMA Design made no compromises, a sport exhaust system, with flap technology made out of high quality stainless steel is mounted, which produces a deep and sonorous racing sound. Tail tips, custom made, are upgrading the visual appearance of the CLR 550 R.

A real highlight is the individual designed passenger compartment. In cooperation with the Interior Designer LMT Benrath, LUMMA Design created pure luxury for the passengers.

For the passenger compartment of the CLR 550 R, LUMMA offers a huge lineup of accessories. All components and assemblies like dashboard, door panels as well as the individual designed and made single seats in the rear passengers compartment, are refind, covered with the finest Carbon leather/Alcantara combination, highlights are set by an ornamental seam in different colour, a superlative masterpiece of quality, design and style, state of the art.Tone in tone, handcrafted in the same material and quality, the steering wheel, ergonomic moulded. The odometers with LUMMA logo, are coated in elegant silver. For motorsport feeling, aluminium pedals and a footrest were mounted as well as entry panels. Made out of high quality aluminium, anodized, with the LUMMA logo engraved. Floor mats in best quality with LUMMA emblem embroidered, matching the colour of the interior, trapped with leather, as well as a boot mat, are rounding up this package.
