Back with our BMW X6 M coverage and today, we have some new photos of the controversial M version of BMW’s Sports Activity Coupe.

The X6 M is powered by aV8 M Turbo Engine with twin scroll turbo chargers, based on the engine found in the xDrive50i model.

Beside the obvious horsepower upgrade, the BMW X6 Mi will distinguish itself from the regular model through the use of several M specific elements: aggressive front-fascia, M side vent and high performance parts.

The X6 M will feature an improved all-wheel-drive system, but in order to reflect the true M performance, it will offer a more rear-concentrated approach.

Could the X6 M give the Porsche Cayenne S a run for its money? We shall find out very soon.

    Car looks pretty good. What data are they collecting when they hooked up the rear wheel ?

  2. Are you sure its going to be an updated version of the 4.4 TT? doesn’t seem like something M division would do ?

    I will say I have stacked up the Porsche Cayenne S against the current X6 50i and there’s no comparison….the X6 50 is already a quicker, more controlled vehicle.
