Going out in style…
At the end of 2010, BMW unveiled their latest 6 Series models, the F12 and F13. They effectively replace the E63 and E64 6 Series generation that was introduced in 2003. With the new 6 Series already hitting the market, Lumma Design decided to have the E64 go out with a bang.
The BMW E64 6 Series was a Chris Bangle design, meaning you either love it or you hate it. Lumma Design has taken a few steps to make the convertible a bit more appealing by adding new exterior bodywork and some carbon fiber. The front boasts a new, more aggressive, front bumper and checkerboard carbon fiber grille. Along both sides, the mirrors have also been covered in good ol’ carbon fiber. The rear features a new bumper with carbon fiber and a carbon fiber trunk-mounted spoiler for increased downforce.
Completing the exterior transformation is a set of new set of wheels and tires. Made by Lumma Design, the three-piece chrome sport wheels are installed in a 9.5 x 21 and 10.5 x 21 fitment with 255/30/21 front and 295/25/21 rear sport tires.
One of the more unique aspects of the E64 BMW 6 Series Convertible is that you can show off your Lumma Design interior to others without them having to ride along. Lumma has furnished the interior with white seat belts and gauges, and carbon fiber door sills, dash panel, handbrake lever, and seatback shells amongst a number of additional trim pieces. For a more entertaining driving experience, the steering wheel has been redesigned with a flat bottom, carbon fiber, and leather. A new machined aluminum pedal set with rubber grips provides even greater control.
The entire Lumma Design BMW E64 6 Series Convertible program is currently available from the German tuner. Customers can also order individual accessories for their E64. Pricing has not been released.
