Applying a purple Porsche finish to a BMW X6 is bound to be polarizing.
Love them or hate them, coupe-style SUVs are here to stay. BMW has been capitalizing on the segment's popularity lately, with no less than three coupe SUVs in the automaker’s current line-up comprising of the X2, X4, and the X6. While the X6 will likely be replaced by a new third-generation model in the next few years, the current-generation model looks undeniably sporty compared to, say, the Mercedes GLE Coupe. That hasn’t stopped tuners from trying to further improve its styling, however.
Enter Russian aftermarket tuner TopCar, a company that usually specializes in modifying Mercedes-Benz cars and Porsches. A Lumma CLR X6 R body kit adds some beefy wheel arch extensions housing bespoke 22-inch double-spoke wheels to the sleek SUV. Elsewhere, new bumpers, spoilers and side skirts give it a more imposing presence. Another standout addition is a sport-exhaust system with quad exhaust tips similar to a Corvette. Chances are this conversion also includes Lumma’s aluminum pedal set, floor mats and trunk mat. TopCar didn’t stop there, though. While this BMW X6 was originally finished in white, the tuner has repainted it in Amethyst from Porsche’s option list.
Let’s just say the vivid metallic purple finish is bound to be polarizing. It isn’t clear which X6 model this is based on, but Lumma will raise the power output of an xDrive50i from 450 hp to 555 hp. For the X6 M range-topper, Lumma can extract 750 hp and 723 lb-ft of torque from its twin-turbo 4.4-liter V8, allowing the SUV to hit a top speed of 186 mph, putting it nearly on a par with the Lamborghini Urus. Speaking of which, TopCar will soon be turning its attention to the Urus, having recently previewed an upcoming widebody kit that makes the super SUV look even more hardcore.
