Widebody Lumma BMW 760Li Teased With Possible Windows Mobile Connection


Shaston, a Switzerland-based international distributor of Windows Mobile devices, just sent us these photos of a BMW 760Li Individual, modified with parts from well-known BMW-tuner Lumma. They didn't give us a ton of details, but thankfully we're equipped with a pair of eyeballs to make some observations of our own.

Lumma's products are beginning to form a consistent shape throughout their BMW line and this 7-Series is no different. The front bumper on this 760Li is clearly from Lumma with many Lumma-inspired features. Wide fender arches flare up the front and the rear, giving the car a more aggressive, sportier profile. They're a little out-of-place on the luxury 7-Series, but we think it might look a lot cleaner if the arches were molded on and blended in with the body.

There are several vent additions on the vehicle, from the front to the rear with a stylish rear bumper featuring a diffuser between the quad-tipped exhaust. It's worth noting that the front grilles and mirrors have been swapped out with carbon fiber pieces.

There's no word if the twin-turbo 6.0-liter V12 gets any power upgrades. It doesn't need it though, with 554-hp and 553 ft-lbs of torque.

Shaston didn't disclose much to us other than the first demonstration car is located in Switzerland and that this vehicle (or tuning package) will be launched in three weeks with "the most advanced computerized management." We're curious to see if Shaston ties in Windows Mobile products to their vehicle. Hopefully it'll be the new Windows Phone 7, tying together automotive technology brilliance with wireless technology.

BimmerE39 will become famous soon enough

Looks legit and sounds cool. My only gripe is the LED's in the bumper because it's not an Audi and it's definitely not a Porsche. I would have made those Angel Eyes pop the way they should from the factory by making them pure white.
