The German BMW tuning specialist has just presented its fresh tuning program for the 2007 BMW X5 E70 crossover SUV. Although the relatively fresh premium-class crossover doesn’t really look like it has its exterior improved in any sort of way (in fact, I could even argue that the new X5 is the most elegant model in their whole product range), performance of the diesel-powered version of the car still can be greatly improved if you are ready to make love to fuel economy.

Called Lumma CLR X530, the program is aimed to boost performance of the diesel-powered SUVs while significantly enhancing its appearance.

The white-painted body kit is just great. In fact, it looks so neat you want to buy a Bimmer to have a good excuse to get one.

The tuned oil-burner gets its power increased from 231 hp to 275 hp and its peak torque is skyrocketing from 520 Nm to 660 Nm.

Lumma doesn’t say anything specific about the vehicle’s dynamics but it will surely cut a couple of seconds off the original 3.0d’s 8.3 secs of zero to 60 mph acceleration time.

The CLR X530 body kit, company is reporting, consists of a new front spoiler with fog lamps and racing grid, a rear apron with an integrated diffuser, wheel arch extensions and new side sills.

There is also a new roof spoiler, a feather-light 10.5 kg (24 lbs) carbon/Kevlar hood, Lumma mirror caps, headlight covers, and taillight covers.

Three different sets of 22-inch wheels complete the picture.
