Range Rover gains widebody kit from Lumma Design Posted on 21 Jan 12:45


Lumma Design is back with yet another tuning job for the latest generation Range Rover. The CLR R GT Evo is an evolution of their previous kits and provides the Range Rover with an entirely different look, starting at the front where there's a custom bumper with cooling air inlets and a central spoiler sword together with dual strips of LED daytime running lights. The tuner also incorporated ventilation openings into the carbon hood cowl while on the sides we notice a mudguard widening set featuring door attachments and built-in air inlets.

Moving at the back, Lumma Design mounted a roof spoiler, an apron with a diffuser and a spoiler lip while three glossy 100mm exhaust pipes mounted in the middle have also been installed. As a final touch, the Range Rover has received massive 22-inch alloy wheels wrapped around in 305/35 R22 Vredestein tires.

There aren't any images with the interior cabin but Lumma Design says they can fit the Range Rover with an aluminum pedal set with slip-proof rubber tabs, leather foot mats, door blinds as well as a full custom leather upholstery and "state-of-the-art multimedia and business installations."

2016 Mercedes-Maybach S600 starts at $189,350 Posted on 17 Jan 13:26

Following its world debut at the Los Angeles Motor Show last November, the 2016 Mercedes-Maybach S600 is now available on order in United States from $189,350 ($925 delivery charges). Scheduled to go on sale in United States in April, the Mercedes-Maybach S-Class will be offered in the range-topping S600 specification and promises to provide an "opulent package" as mentioned by the Daimler-owned company. It is 200mm (8 inches) longer (at 5453mm / 214,6 inches) than the S-Class LWB and all the added length can be noticed in the wheelbase (at 3365mm / 132,4 inches) which now grants stellar rear legroom. The exterior styling tweaks are subtle as the only noticeable features are the 66mm shorter rear doors, C-pillar third side window, lightly revised front grille along with Maybach-specific wheels, lettering & badges. The most important changes occur inside the cabin of the "quietest car in the world" where there are standard executive rear seats with individually adjustable backrests and cushions. Its heart and soul is the familiar V12 6.0-liter twin-turbo engine developing 523 bhp (390 kW) and 612 lb-ft (830 Nm) of torque. Aside from a massive engine, the hefty price tag also brings MAGIC BODY CONTROL, full LED headlights, Burmester 3D surround sound system, head-up display, rear seat entertainment system, heated windshield and many more. As a reminder, the same version starts at €187,841 at home in Germany where interested buyers can also get a V8-powered S500 variant from €134,053.
