The first BMW X6 M photos made their way onto the web a day before the official release. As promised, we’re returning with more exclusive information regarding the X6 M but also the “twin”, BMW X5 M.

Both models are powered by a tuned up 4.4 liter V8 M engine delivering 555 horsepower at 6,000 rpm and 500 lb-ft of torque from 1,500 to 5,650 rpm. The engine uses the twin-scroll twin turbo technology with High Precision Direct Injection. BMW patented their manifold technology which improved performance.

The 6-speed M Sports Automatic transmission is featured for the first time on a BMW M vehicle. There are two other modes available beside the regular Drive, Sport and M Manual. Gears can be manually shifted through the paddles located on the M steering wheel.

Due to the M Suspension, the BMW X6 M and X5 M are sitting about 0.4 inch lower compared to the regular models. T

Both cars feature heated front M Sport seats, M steering wheel, M door sills and driver’s footrest.

They both receive the latest iDrive system with Real-Time Traffic data.

No pricing has been announced yet, but stick around, we’ll get that for you soon.

    OMFG !!!!! 4.5 seconds????????? that’s fucking awesome

    I really fear this could be a nail in the coffin for BMW. The wrong car for the wrong time. It seems unthinkable the amount of cars they’ve cancelled yet still produced the X5 & X6 M. You have to think that they were so late into development that they couldn’t cancel them. Shame.

    So BMW used a traditional tall first gear ?

  • BMWDriver

    The fact that they accomplished this with smaller displacement is just remarkable.
    This is truly remarkable.

    @BMWDriver:
    That’s what make BMW remarkable they never had use the 6.2L that every other company has been using and the made almost the same amount of hp,like someone said in a review a little while ago, BMW is not raw power coming from a 1000L 1000 cylinders engines, is well applied, smart, controllable and usable power, always in style.

    I don’t know what to say.

    Engine: Yay !
    Tranny: Boo ! Hope the new M5 gets DCT or SMG

    I suppose in terms of catering to the market this makes sense though, offering the automatic and all. :(

  • Gord

    Do you guys think BMW’s DCT and SMG can’t support the power of the X6 M leading to an auto tranny ?
