The 552-hp 2013 BMW M6
is the wildest iteration of BMW’s large two-door gran turismo
, but it appears it may not be enough to suit some tastes. German tuning firm Lumma Design
is apparently hard at work at crafting a more extreme version - dubbed the CLR 6 M – and recently previewed its handiwork before its official unveiling this fall.
In many ways, the car follows in the footsteps of Lumma’s CLR 600, which was buit upon the last-generation E63 M6 coupe. Blacked-out hood? Check. Carbon fiber roof? Check. Blistered fender flares and rocker sills? Check and check. Still, Lumma’s latest M6 looks wilder than ever – perhaps it’s the wide front splitter, the gaping air intakes, the fixed rear wing, the giant 21-inch wheels, or the enormous rear diffuser, but the CLR 6 M almost looks like a race-ready version of the M6.
Lumma’s proposed interior looks equally as outlandish as the CLR 6 M’s interior. The M6’s cabin is trimmed in a stirking black-and-red two-tone scheme, but is then bathed with liberal amounts of carbon fiber. The polymer appears to be applied to the steering wheel, dash trim, and center console, and we wouldn’t be surprised if that’s but the tip of the carbon fiber iceberg.
Further details are still forthcoming, though it wouldn’t be surprising if Lumma has some performance tweaks up its sleeve. Previous custom projects typically include larger brakes, a lowered ride height, and a new exhaust system. We’d also expect a bump in power: since Lumma’s customized X6 M, whose twin-turbocharged 4.4-liter V-8 shares much with the M6’s engine, reportedly packs 100 additional horsepower over the stock model, we wouldn’t be surprised if the CLR 6 M rings in around 652 hp or so.
Expect further details to emerge in the months to come, as Lumma hopes to have the CLR 6 M available to European customers by the fall of 2012.
