Lumma Design, the German tuner, will be showing off its revised Porsche Cayenne GTS at Germany’s Essen Motor Show at the end of the month. The Lumma Design CLR 550 R takes the hot Cayenne and drops in a supercharger to move it form 400 hp to 612 hp. The kit also includes the body modification such as a new wide open grille, side skirts, front and rear spoilers, vents on the hood, and a rear diffuser.
While this whole package is impressive, after seeing edo’s Cayenne GTS , is even more power really necessary? Once again, are there any average drivers out there who know how to keep control of a 5000 lb. truck that has more power than a Dodge Viper ?

Under the hood, Lumma Design begins with Porsche’s already potent 4.8L V8 motor, which in basic form delivers almost 400hp. For the CLR 550 R, Lumma includes a supercharger, which generates in excess of 50% more horsepower in contrast to the stock Cayenne GTS. All 612hp (456kW) is channelled to the road through custom 23 inch wheels with very low-profile sports rubber fundamentally painted onto the rims.
Lumma puts in a very potent braking system not only to provide improved stopping power, but also to aid the heavy weight Cayenne to cope with the power increases. This is decisively a novel idea considering the speed at which 612 horses could bring the sports SUV. The car’s driving height has also been significantly decreased and a sports suspension system is put in place to prevent it from rolling around during corners.
