There are always tuning firms that really go the extra mile and most of the time, the efforts put out to tune expensive cars can be a hit or miss. For example, the Porsche Cayenne was a car I thought that had aesthetics that were just as confusing as its purpose. And what Germany’s Lumma Design makes of a Porsche Cayenne is something that is just downright berserk… in a good way.
Lumma Design just released their latest tuning kit for the current Porsche SUV. It’s called the CLR 558 GT body kit, which sounds just as interesting as a bowl of pea soup but it’s definitely a lot more appealing than that.
Consisting of the usual, revised front bumpers with air intakes, a front spoiler with quad fogs, rear bumper with an integrated diffuser, a rear spoiler, side skirts, and pronounced wheel arches, it’s more of a reconstruction rather than a shot Botox.
Add a suspension lowered by 1.5 inches, a custom exhaust system and a reworked interior, you have the black-and-white Porsche Cayenne CLR 558 GT. Oh, I forgot to mention that it also has 22-inch wheels.

White pepper – Porsche Cayenne II by LUMMA Design
The Porsche Cayenne II is the logical continuation of its precedent model named Cayenne I with even cosmetic corrections, as e.g. the “takeover” of the headlamps looking like those of the Panamera, which, by the way also remembers the interior. The model No. II is a bit longer, increasing the wheelbase, with about 180 kg (400 lb.) less of weight, having nevertheless still about two metric tons.
The traditional tuning factory LUMMA Design from Winterlingen, Germany, presents with its interpretation of the new Cayenne, a SUV with conscious car body kit named CLR 558 GT, consisting in a spoiled front bumper with air inlet frames, which can be found together with diffusers on the rear bumper, front and rear wheel arch enlargements and side sills with door supports.

Before describing the interior lets have a look at the multipart wheels in 10×22 in. rear and in front, with colored outer tire beds and tires in 295/30-22 including wheel spacing kit all around.
When opening the door, the two part aluminum pedals set for throttle and braking controls (all models with tiptronic) with milled foot pedals and integrated anti-slip rubber nobs are catching the eyes, the equally equipped with these anti-slip rubber nobs aluminum foot rest matching to them, as also the four part door sill panel set with illuminated LUMMA logo, for all models. The foot mat set with real leather bordering and the kick plate in real black leather decorate the LUMMA emblem.
