Even though yesterday we said there will be no more photos prior to the official launch on Saturday, we have some new spy photos of the BMW X6 M. Courtesy of our friend Palbay, we finally get to see the famous M gills, a trademark of any BMW Motorsport model.

While the very light camo is still present on the front and rear bumper, we have good idea of what to expect, more aggressive bumpers, especially the front-one which makes space for the large air-intakes.

BMW X6 M shows up one more time prior to the official launch

No other news came out these days, so we can still assume that the 550 horsepower figure is pretty accurate. The BMW X6 M will be officially unveiled next Wednesday at the New York Auto Show, but the media embargo ends on Saturday, so the first photos will be out this weekend.

As far as the other “twin”, the BMW X5 M, the latest rumors talk about BMW planning to unveil it at the Shanghai Auto Show at the end of April. We would love to see both “twins” at the upcoming NYC show, but we’ll settle for the X6 M if needed.

    Ignoring the relevance of cars like these in these difficult times, I REALLY like this X6 M. It is rapidly moving up my own list of top Bimmers of all time. I always liked the look of the X6, but now, with 550bhp, it’s going to be meaner than a Rhino with a hangover.

    Can’t wait for the unveiling!

    Honestly I would have been first in line to purchase this vehicle as it would make the perfect stable mate to my m5 but I can’t stand all these high powered vehicles with retarded auto transmissions.

    We can see everything from these pics…. just wondering if the roofranks are gloss black, if not silver would have been a better option for BMW!

    @Gord: Gord, I just know :) You forget you’re on BMWBLOG :) They might leak earlier, but the original photos will be out Saturday.

    There are many rules no one can break and it’s good not to break them. And NO, I didn’t see the photos, but I know how it works.

    Looks pretty good.
