Larte Design develops body kits for BMW X5, as well as the X3 and X4.
Larte Design has been developing body kits for Mercedes-Benz, Infiniti, Land Rover, and Tesla for years, but now the tuner has decided to expand its expertise by giving some of BMW's SUVs a subtle but sporty makeover. Specifically, Larte Design has developed some body kits for the BMW X3, X4, and X5 to give the Bavarian automaker's SUVs sportier styling. According to the tuner, the BMW X5's body kit embodies "the boldest ideas, advanced developments and experience of Larte Design masters, elevating this crossover to the rank of automotive masterpieces."
On request, Larte Design's BMW X5 body kit can be constructed from premium carbon fiber or composite materials. Any elements of the body can also be decorated with aged bronze accents, which can also be applied to the interior.
Other exterior enhancements include a front bumper splitter, side skirts with aggressive air intakes, carbon mirror caps, a rear bumper diffuser with aluminum trapezoidal nozzles, a trunk lid spoiler, door sills, and 22-inch wheels with a two-tone design combining black gloss and aged bronze.
Similar enhancements are available for the X5's smaller X4 and X3 siblings. Available for the 2018-2019 model years, Larte Design's custom BMW X4 features a carbon fiber grille, a sports splitter that compliments the look of the M Sport front bumper, a rear diffuser, a trunk lid spoiler, and 21-inch forged wheels.
As for the BMW X3, Larte Design's body kit gives the crossover a more athletic look when combined with the M Sport Package and includes the same components as the X4's kit. No modifications have been made under the hood, however.
Powering the BMW X3 is a 2.0-liter four-cylinder turbo and a 3.0-liter six-cylinder turbo producing 248 horsepower and 258 lb-ft of torque, and 382 horsepower and 369 lb-ft of torque respectively. The X4 is offered with the same engine options, but the 3.0-liter turbo produces 355 hp and 365 lb-ft of torque. As for the larger X5, BMW offers a 3.0-liter six-cylinder turbo producing 335 hp and 330 lb-ft of torque in the base model, while the M50i packs a 4.4-liter twin-turbo V8 with 523 hp and 553 lb-ft of torque.
