We saw the first package from the newly sprung partnership between Lumma Design and Top Car back in June when they released a photo shoot featuring the CLR X 650. That venture was not the last we were going to see of this new endeavor. so we sat back and patiently waited for the next vehicle to be presented. Enter the CLR 500 RS2 based off of the new BMW 5-Series and upgraded with both engine and aerodynamic updates.
But let’s start at the beginning. For the exterior, the tuners are offering a carbon fiber hood, wing extensions, a new front spoiler with huge air intakes, LED lights, new side skirts, a new rear spoiler, and a diffuser made by carbon fiber. Rounding off the exterior of the BMW is a new set of wheels and a matte black paint. The interior also gets lots of carbon fiber inserts. All of this makes the CLR 500 RS2 anything, but subtle.
The kit is based on a 535i, which in its standard version develops a total of 306 HP. But after a few tricks, the engine’s output has been increased to an impressive 380 HP. The price for the kit is $174,000.
UPDATE 06/20/11: New photos are up of BMW CLR 500 RS2 courtesy of the collaborative efforts between Lumma Design and TopCar. The car may have escaped our attentions by the passing of time, but trust us, everything will all come rushing back once you take a look at these newly-released photos.
