Lumma has introduced a conversion kit for the Mercedes G-Class that beefs up its aesthetics

LISTEN 04:05

German aftermarket company Lumma has come up with a build for another luxurious SUV. The company has given radical twists to many vehicles in the past, including multiple iterations of the Audi Q8. This time, it’s the Mercedes G-Class that goes under the knife.

The German firm is known to design really wild creations, pretty much like Mansory, but this one – according to Lumma’s reputation – is a rather subdued customization. The conversion kit comes with a custom body kit and huge wheels amongst other things.

What’s So Special About The Lumma G-Class?

Called the Lumma CLR G770 R, this creation started life as a boxy, luxurious Mercedes-Benz G-Class. The aftermarket company chose a black exterior shade for this SUV.

Lumma is offering the G-Class in two different packages – Performance+ and Sport+. The latter comes with a whole lot of parts and accessories.

Up front, the SUV receives a redesigned bumper that features a front spoiler. The egg-crate grille features LED light strips that double up as daytime running lights. There are red inserts here and a Lumma logo is slapped in the center. The hood comes with a mighty big attachment and looks a little too much, but, it’s a Lumma build at the end of the day.

This SUV rides on hot 24-inch CLR 24 RS black wheels with red outlining. They are wrapped in 295/30 tires at the front and 355/25 low-profile, wide tires at the back.

To accommodate these huge wheels and tires, the aftermarket company was forced to make changes to the fenders as well. The new fenders add 1.38 inches to the width of the SUV on each side. A strip runs across the side profile with a red insert, thus complementing the overall black-and-red theme of this G-Class. Lumma has installed a roof trim with additional headlights.

Things at the rear are quite different, too. The rear bumper features a mesh design to make it stand out from the standard G-Class. A Lumma-branded spare wheel cover and rear roof spoiler are the other things offered on this build. You can choose to have these body components in carbon fiber by shelling out some extra moolah.

The cabin is done based on the customer’s requirement and there isn’t a standard set of changes here.

However, you can get the interior completely redone, right from the dash to the seats and carpeting. That said, all the standard G-Class treatment should continue to be offered as is.

Any Changes Under The Hood?

Lumma hasn’t made any changes to the drivetrain. Since the company is offerings kits and not selling the rebuilt car directly, you can get either the standard G-Class or the AMG version. Both offerings come with a 4.0-liter, V-8 Bi-turbo engine. In the case of the standard G-Class, the engine churns out 416 ponies and 450 pound-feet of torque. With the AMG treatment, the same mill makes 577 horses and 627 pound-feet of twist. Power is sent to all the wheels via a nine-speed automatic gearbox.

The company has made changes to the exhaust system, though. The one available for the G63 comes with two flap-controlled rear silencers with three black or three chrome-plated stainless steel tailpipes on each side. In the case of the non-AMG models, you can have two black tailpipes on the left and right on either side.

Final Thoughts

The Lumma CLR G770 R conversion kit starts at €12,700, which is approximately $14,900 as per current exchange rates. The pricing, honestly, isn’t too bad. To put it into perspective, it is roughly around 10-percent the price of a new G-Class. The standard model starts at $130,900, whereas the AMG G63 starts at $156,450.

About the author

Whoever is planning to individualize their Mercedes-Benz G-Class will inevitably come across LUMMA Design GmbH & Co. KG, which is based in Winterlingen in southern Germany. The owner Horst Lumma is a pioneer of exclusive automotive tuning and has built an excellent reputation for refining these popular all-wheel drive vehicles since the beginning of the global SUV and off-road vehicle boom.
The LUMMA CLR G770 R is another masterpiece and the crowning achievement of the extensive tuning programme for the current Mercedes-Benz G-Class in addition to the already well-known LUMMA CLR G770. Masculine body components, wheel-arch-filling alloy wheels in 24-inch format as well as powerful sounding exhaust systems make the legendary off-roader the unmistakable King of the Road that cannot be overlooked or overheard.

More revolution than evolution
The LUMMA CLR G770 R offers a multitude of technical and visual innovations compared to the previous model LUMMA CLR G770 (which of course is still available). The in-house designer completely redesigned the front and rear sections in particular: The front spoiler bumper and rear apron bumper impress with their even more expressive look and complement each other perfectly with the new rear door attachments, the design trim between the rear lights and the front grille with the additional daytime running lights. In addition, the wing extensions have received a technical improvement: These are now made of PUR-RIM plastic and can be screwed directly to the vehicle without gluing and can therefore be easily retrofitted. The production in PUR-RIM also ensures a precisely fitting assembly and reduces time-consuming and costly painting preparations. LUMMA optionally offers its body components made of the high-strength and ultra-light material carbon fibre. The visible carbon fibre structure intentionally evokes associations with motorsport.

Performance+ and Sport+ bring together additional options
LUMMA has combined further refinement variants with price advantages in the Performance+ and Sport+ part packages: The latter includes, among other things, a spare wheel cover, front grille frame, front emblem, roof trim with additional headlights, rear roof spoiler and the distinctive bonnet attachment.

Alloy wheels up to 24 inches
LUMMA offers various wheel designs and sizes specially tailored to the distinct requirements of the Mercedes. The 24-inch CLR 24 RS alloy wheel is a highlight in terms of styling and technology. The dynamic design of its spokes does not only give a striking, sports look, but is also responsible for an even load distribution and thereby guarantees loads of up to 970 kg per wheel. LUMMA recommends tyres with dimensions of 295/30-24" on the front axle and 355/25-24" on the rear axle.

A powerful sound from six tailpipes
A sporty, powerful sounding sports exhaust system was specially developed for the G63. The two flap-controlled rear silencers adorn its flanks with three black or three chrome-plated stainless steel tailpipes on each side and these stage the V8 Biturbo engine with a powerful sound. For the G350d and 400d models, LUMMA offers sports exhaust trims that are reminiscent of the large top model with two black tailpipes on the left and right.

Individuality also in the interior
The individualization of the G-Class can be continued in the interior on request. The interior can be completely redesigned from the dashboard to the seats and carpeting: The experienced team only uses the highest quality materials, such as first-class leather or perfectly produced carbon.

The prices for the CLR G770 R conversion kit start at 12,700 Euro. The conversion with painting takes place at LUMMA directly in the in-house specialist workshop or by means of one of the worldwide partner workshops.
The LUMMA CLR G770 R refinement programme is now available.
