BMW 6-Series Cabrio by Lumma Design

1 Comment BMW


German tuner Lumma Design has done a little re-sculpting of the BMW 6-Series Cabriolet.

Lumma Design is always good for adding a unique and wilder take on a typical stodgy German design. And that’s what they’ve done here with that black rear wing on this white 6er Cabrio.

The complete aerodynamic package includes a front bumper with a matching rear bumper, checkerboard-design grille inserts as well as that large rear wing. The tuner also fits a four-piped sport exhaust system that adds a little growl to the 6er.

For the wheels, Lumma Design provides its own rims in polished chrome – 9.5 x 21-inches at the front and 10.5 x 21-inches at the rear. Tires dimensions are 255/30R21 and 295/25R21 front and back, respectively.

On the inside is a new flattened and ergonomically shaped steering wheel finished in carbon and leather. Lumma logos adorn the new white instrument dials which work visually in tandem with the white seat belts.

Aluminum pedals are also added, studded with black rubber for grip, and checkerboard-design carbon trims are laid on the inside door sills, dashboard, handbrake and seat backs.
