Tuner Lumma Design has gotten its hands on the new 2011 Porsche Cayenne SUV and has provided it with a very aggressive looking bodykit. Lumma Design says that it provided the “somewhat reserved appearance for the new Cayenne with a tailor-made sports suit that radiates self-confidence.” We sort of (obviously) disagree with that statement.
Known as the Lumma Design CLR 550 GT, the modified 2011 Cayenne gets a new front spoiler, a sporty bonnet made from high-performance materials such as carbon and Kevlar, gill-like air inlets, elevated windscreen wiper cover reduces the aerodynamic drag, bold wing extensions, new side skirts and 22-inch or 23-inch light alloy wheels.
Lumma Design promises to offer performance upgrades for the CLR 550 GT later down the road and just by the name we’re guessing it’ll produce somewhere north of 550-hp.
Hit the jump for the press release.
Lumma Design CLR 550 GT:
2011 Porsche Cayenne:
LUMMA Design refines the new Porsche Cayenne for its launch
* A complete aerodynamic package increases its dominance on the road
* The self-assured appearance is emphasized by components made of carbon
* Its forged light-alloy wheels are available in 22 and 23 inches
For more than 20 years, LUMMA Design has been recognized as one of the fastest car tuners around. This applies to the engine performance of the vehicles as well as the pace to which the company reacts to new car models. The car tuner from Winterlingen in the German state of Baden-WÃ¼rttemberg presents its design development CLR 550 GT already for the launch of the brand-new Porsche Cayenne.
LUMMA Design provided the somewhat reserved appearance of the Cayenne with a tailor-made sports suit that radiates self-confidence. It comprises a new front spoiler with a deep drawn cup spoiler sword and additional carbon applications that give the Porsche an aggressive agile look. The added LED daytime running lights and the fog lights unit emphasise this self-contained design.
The new sporty bonnet, which is made from high-performance materials such as carbon and Kevlar, also demands to be recognised. The gill-like air inlets provide the best heat dissipation from the engine compartment, and the elevated windscreen wiper cover reduces the aerodynamic drag.
The bold wing extensions continue the aerodynamic optimisation of the Cayenne. The side skirts steady the airflow and guide the air through a specially designed channel to the rear brakes, thus ensuring a stable and optimum operating temperature. Customized openings in the door fixtures provide additional cooling. They continue seamlessly between the wider wheelhouse of the front and rear wheels. The total aerodynamic package makes the CLR 550 GT a force to be reckoned with on the road.
This impression is further reinforced by the massive light alloy wheels. LUMMA Design uses forged 11×23 inch aluminium rims with a deep wheel hub.
The individual shape of the rear end is also impressive. The heart of this design is the rear spoiler with its integrated carbon diffuser. Incorporated into the centre of the spoiler are the three stainless steel tailpipes, giving it the distinctive look of the design. Only LUMMA Design offers the visual appearance of a centre pipe flanked by two smaller ones. What’s more, the roof edge spoiler and the tear-off edge on the tailgate, both made of carbon, provide additional power.
By incorporating further design elements, LUMMA Design brings the transformation of the Porsche Cayenne to full circle. This includes headlight rings and tail light trims.
Increased performance features and a comprehensive luxury programme for fine-tuning of the interior are already on the table.
The new CLR 550 GT proves again that LUMMA Design is a trendsetter in its field. Immediately with the launch of the Porsche Cayenne, this car tuner offers an extensive transition as a sports car with loads of personality. Additional information about the CLR 550 GT and the entire tuning programme offered by LUMMA Design will soon be available on its web site www.lumma-design.com
