Pretty interesting to see the new BMW X6 M in New York City since for the past months, the car was only spotted in California, Spartanburg and Germany.

GMInsideNews forum member GeneralMischief spotted the car in  Brooklyn, giving us a pleasant surprise. Most likely the car belongs to an executive or test engineer working at the New Jersey Headquarters.

I would love to tell you that we have found something new, but the spy shots are pretty much in-line with what we have seen so far. Front and rear fascias are still sporting the light camo, but with no doubt, this is the X6 M.

The official BMW video we saw a few weeks back confirmed that the BMW X6 M will have the V8 M Turbo Engine with twin scroll turbo chargers, an enhanced engine, superior to the one found in the X6 xDrive50i. Rumors say the engine will be producing anywhere between 530 hp to 580 hp.

We also learned in the past that BMW will enhance the AWD system to reflect M performance, by offering a more rear-concentrated approach. The Dynamic Performance Control is integrated with the X6, so the motor will vary the torque from the right to the left therefore increasing performance.

As far as the interior goes, expect all the visual enhancements that  come with an M model: M steering wheel, M cluster and leather trim specific for M cars.

As always, we will keep you updated as soon as new photos and information surface.

    A few curious things about this.

    First, the “regular” TT V8 powers each variable-vane turbo with 4 cylinder exhausts. I don’t understand how this could work with twin-scroll turbos, because you generally want even pressure for each scroll (afaik). You’d have 50% pressure alternating on each scroll, not evenly.

    Second, doesn’t the standard X6 have the rear torque distributing system? That’s the ZF active differential system (DPC).
