So far as SUVs go, the Audi Q8 is about as outlandish as you possibly can ask for. It’s huge measurement, squared shoulders and indignant face are positive to make an impression. In actual fact, our black-on-black-on-black Audi Q8 press automobile turned extra heads than our brilliant purple Audi S5. It is probably not the prettiest factor, however it positive stands out. So what it doesn’t want is extra presence. The individuals over at Lumma Design disagree, apparently.
The German tuners determined that the Audi Q8 simply wasn’t flashy sufficient and determined crank it as much as eleven. What they created known as the Lumma CLR 8S, for some cause, and it’s, umm, fascinating. Its new physique equipment provides boxy designs and shapes all over the place, together with some unnecessary vents on the fenders and a few purple bits of trim. It additionally will get a large boxy hood scoop, that seemingly does nothing besides make the motive force really feel… endowed whereas driving it.
It additionally will get 24-inch wheels, that are merely monumental, two rear spoilers and by far probably the most egregious offense of the automobile — faux quad exhausts. The usual Audi Q8 comes with faux exhaust suggestions and it’s virtually inexcusable. However Lumma Design determined so as to add quad exhaust suggestions, which might be superior apart from the truth that they’re additionally faux. It’s baffling and upsetting.
Personally, I like my automobiles tastefully and subtly modded however I’ve no drawback appreciating a extra wild construct right here and there, as long as it’s not simply nonsense. This Lumma Design Audi Q8 is simply insanity for the sake of insanity and it simply isn’t good trying, sadly. To be sincere, I used to be truly okay with it at first, because the Q8 is kind of purported to be outlandish so who cares if somebody makes it extra so. It was these faux quad exhausts that acquired me. I can’t unsee them and I can’t neglect about them. They’re seared into my mind and now I’ve a headache.
