Lumma Design BMW X5 CLR X530 Diesel
After LUMMA DESIGN recently unleashed the X5 as the X530 with brute-force 530 bhp, the German tuner has now also turned its attention to the diesel versions. They have also been treated to the broader X530 aerodynamic kit in addition to a substantial increase in power delivery and torque. This also cuts a good figure in white, which is complemented by white wheels (see photographic material). In addition, LUMMA has made changes to the chassis, sound and interior.
LUMMA has implemented the diesel motor tuning with its D-Power-Box. This additional electronic circuit now coaxes a generous 275 bhp out of the 3.0d, instead of the standard 235. The torque increases from 520 to a convincing 600 Nm. The 3.0sd attains performance data that makes some sports cars turn pale in comparison. This is because, a phenomenal 330 bhp, instead of 286, has been fitted and instead of 580, there are 660 Nm on the power train.
An even sportier rear appearance for the 3.0d and 3.0sd is guaranteed by LUMMAs exhaust pipe covers, two on each side (120x95 mm). LUMMA continues to furnish the petrol versions with the complete sport exhaust system of stainless steel.
What already looked good on the 4.8i is naturally just as perfect on the diesel X5. The LUMMA body kit CLR X530 is composed of a front spoiler with fog lamps in extravagantly-formed air inlets plus racing grid, a rear apron with a diffuser look, broader wings at the front and back that radiate power, new side sill moldings as well as the lettering CLR X 530. All components are largely made of PUR-RIM in original equipment manufacturer quality.
The body kit can be expanded by further components. LUMMA offers a roof spoiler extension which can simply be affixed to the upper rim of the boot lid. A very special eye-catcher is the high-quality, handmade LUMMA sport-look light-weight hood (10.5 kg) made of carbon/Kevlar composite material, with its characteristic opening for discharging warm air from the engine bay. A set of LUMMA sport design exterior mirror caps, which have replaced the original parts, complement the LUMMA body kit perfectly through their aerodynamically-optimized design. The mirror caps are also available in the motor sport material par excellence, carbon. LUMMA restores a more serious look to the headlights of the CLR X530 with the help of a set of covers. Similarly, LUMMA also equips the taillights with a set of covers (4-part and likewise adhesive). The dark-tinted LUMMA taillights form a welcome contrast to a bright (or white, see image material) paint finish (export only!).
A good idea, which makes sense in multi-storey car parks or other places that are badly-lit or not lit at all, is the LUMMA entry illumination. On each side of the car floor, five LEDs go on when the doors are opened or unlocked and light the way for the passengers getting into the car.
With its complete wheel sets, LUMMA lets its customers choose from three 22-inch possibilities. For one, theres the wheel set with the new 10x22 inch sports rim LUMMA Racing 1 in multi-part look with silver or matt black wheel spider and polished stainless steel rim flange, as well as the lettering LUMMA Racing on the centre cap. The second possibility is the wheel set Racing 3 with a one-piece rim in multi-part look and polished rim flange.
The wheel set Racing 2 can be especially recommended for white vehicles (see photographs) with its one-piece sports rim in the ice crystal-like Y-Design LUMMA Edition, which is also available in white to match the vehicle, or, at an extra charge, in any other desired color.
LUMMA fits all three versions with high performance tires of the dimension 295/30-22. For example, with the PROXES S/T (300 km/h approval!) of its technology partner Toyo. LUMMA also supplies the wheels with rims in 9.5x20 and a tyre dimension of 275/40-20.
LUMMA achieves a somewhat lower centre of gravity and more agile handling by mounting LUMMA/H&R lowering springs. A good compromise between comfort and maintaining vehicle height, which still suffices for uneven terrain.
The LUMMA program offers a very large range of additional accessories for the CLR X530 interior. Ergonomically formed and with a root wood or leather trim the LUMMA sports steering wheel communicates a stronger bond with the vehicle. The LUMMA gear stick head is likewise a feast for the eyes in a root-wood version. The elegant cockpit is also equipped with colored instrument faces (see photographic material: matching the vehicle color white; speedometer up to 330 km/h) as well as aluminium door sills. Racing car atmosphere is transmitted by LUMMA aluminium pedals and an aluminium foot rest. A foot mat in high quality velour with an embroidered emblem and real leather edging (color as desired) makes the cabin homier. LUMMA also offers a matching boot mat of the same material.
