Lumma Design’s BMW X7 Kit Flexes Widebody Gains

You know, because the standard X7 clearly isn’t large enough.

To be quite frank, BMW’s untamed X7 doesn’t necessarily need a widebody kit or any sort of extra muscle to come across as one mean piece of machinery. On the contrary, the Bavarian crossover colossus is a fearsome behemoth straight off the production line.

Its base trim comes equipped with an intercooled 3.0-liter inline-six powerplant that boasts variable valve timing and four valves per cylinder. At approximately 5,500 rpm, this nasty turbocharged animal is fully capable of delivering up to 335 ponies, along with a solid torque output of 330 pound-feet (447 Nm) at 1,500 revs.

On the other hand, the range-topping variant is brought to life by a ruthless 4.4-liter twin-turbo V8 mill, with a total of 32 valves. It will gladly produce as much as 523 hp at 5,500 revs and 553 pound-feet (750 Nm) of feral twisting force at around 1,800 rpm.

This ominous power travels to an all-wheel-drive system by means of an eight-speed automatic transmission. In terms of chassis, suspension duties are taken care of by a double wishbone unit at the front, while X7’s rear end rests on a multi-link setup. Each and every one of its aluminum wheels is provided with ventilated disc brakes that’ll handle stopping power without breaking a sweat, as well as ABS and driveline traction control.

Oh, and don’t even get me started on all those high-tech components to be found throughout the cabin, okay? BMW’s SUV brings about a selection of top-grade features that’ll leave you wanting for nothing, such as heated front seats, a juicy infotainment module and more space than you could possibly need.

However, there are some petrolheads among us that’ll always crave some extra visual weight. For these folks, Lumma Design’s inventory should be rather appealing, to say the least. Their range hosts an array of visual enhancement kits for the likes of Range Rover, Audi and Jaguar, to name a few. Needless to say, Lumma’s widebody goodness will have your whip looking the part!

Look, these German aftermarket surgeons aren’t exactly rookies in this line of business, either. Their history dates all the way back to 1987, when Horst Lumma decided to pursue his ambition and establish his very own enterprise. Sure enough, this proved to be one hell of an undertaking.

As to their package for the BMW X7, it’ll increase the SUV’s width by no less than two inches (50 mm) on each side, which is just staggering! Besides an over-sized front bumper with integrated air inlets and a fresh splitter, you will also find a menacing set of bulky fender flares and gargantuan side skirts.

At the rear end, the Lumma crew installed a vicious diffuser that complements the additional muscle up front, as well as a stealthy spoiler that serves to let everyone know this isn't your regular X7 shebang. To make for a comprehensive kit, the tuner offers enormous 23-inch custom wheels. Optionally, their more adventurous customers may select 24-inch variants.

Finally, all this madness brings along a reasonable price tag of €16,750 ($19,548 as per current exchange rates), which isn’t too bad for a kit that’ll make your Bavarian crossover look like a mountain on wheels.

To be fair, this is exactly what we’ve come to expect from these ambitious aftermarket magicians!
