After the German tuners from TechArt revealed their plans for a fully customized Panamera, the luxury specialists at Lumma Design decided that they could do the new four door sports car one better with their own high performance design study based on Porsche’s latest grand tourer.
While the Porsche Panamera is already an attractive vehicle from the factory, the Lumma Design model is a much sleeker sports car thanks to the stretched front end, deep dish 22 inch rims and the oversized rear wing. The Lumma Panamera will also have enough grunt to back up the super car looks. The German design team are planning for the Panamera to have no fewer than 700 HP coming from a modified turbocharged Porsche V8 under the hood, hence the CLR 700 GT writing down the side like a classic Carrera.
TechArt maintained the majority of the factory’s bodylines, only accentuating the new muscular figure, however Lumma Design is going above an beyond with an aggressive wide body kit to transform the Panamera into a true GT race car. The redesigned aero package consists of bold fender flares, sleek side skirts, restyled bumpers with larger openings and a more pronounced down force inducing front lip. The hood is also another race car part, judging from the sketch it looks like it will be made out of carbon fiber and feature quite a few engine bay temperature reducing vents. While most owners should be content with their fast four door sport sedans but there will always be a few willing to take their rides to the next level, and this rendering from Lumma Design would make a perfect starting place.
Updated 26/02/2010: Lumma Design revealed new images and official details on the CLR 700 GT. The car will be presented at Geneva Motor Show.
The Porsche Panamera gets a new character in Winterlingen, Germany. LUMMA Design remains unimpressed by the four doors of the Gran Turismo. The engineers see an automobile with racing character, tailor a carbon coat to the outer shell and refine the interior with precious leather. This way, the Panamera turns into the LUMMA CLR 700 GT.
Carbon and Kevlar mould the aerodynamics
At LUMMA Design, the Gran Turismo from Zuffenhausen is equipped with a large number of carbon parts which both enormously boosts the agility as well as the sporty appearance. Therefore, the cup spoiler sword, the lateral air inlets, the rear skirt corners and the entire rear diffuser are made of carbon, as well as the side skirt and the rear wing with the aluminium stilts. The sports bonnet with the two additional air vents has also been made of the ultra-light material and is also reinforced with a Kevlar bracing. The aerodynamics kit is completed with the front spoiler with LED indicators, wing extensions and the rear skirt with the air vents.
The dynamic look is underlined with headlight rings in the car colour and shaded rear lights. The according sound is provided by the end muffler “Sportsound“ with its four stainless steel end pipes, each measuring 100 millimetres in diameter.
Three-part forged wheels in 21 inches
Wheels from the “Racing Edition“ render a racing look to the CLR 700 GT. LUMMA Design fits these three-part rims with the forged star hub and the stainless steel outer well in 10.5x21 inches with tyres measuring 265/30 at the front- and 12x21 inches with ultra-high performance tyres measuring 305/30-21 at the back axle.
LUMMA Design combines sports and luxury in the interior. The aluminium pedals and the light alloy foot rest are exemplary for the performance of the car. The high-class interior is achieved with an entire leather- and ultra-suede equipment with silver decoration stitches.
These perfectly match with the silver seat-belts at all four seats. The noble character of the car is enhanced with the type plate displaying the consecutive serial number, the door sills with the illuminated lettering “CLR 700 GT“ as well as the velour floor mats and the boot mat with the LUMMA coat of arms logo and leather edging.
LUMMA Design is already working on a performance enhancement up to 700 hp (515 kW). Already now available is the engine optics kit in red with carbon inlay and the coat of arms logo.
Once again, the CLR 700 GT confirms LUMMA Design’s dedication for automobile refinement. The individual components follow the overall concept in terms of shape, material selection and processing. This is the only way how each car can obtain its individual character and the reason why LUMMA Design has made a name for itself.
