A two-door “real coupe” BMW X6? According to Worldcarfans, a company called ArmoTech is taking this nearly impossible task. By dropping the rear-doors, ArmoTech plans to build a fairly impractical vehicle.
The conversion done by the Russian tuner, involves pushing the B-pillar backwards, adding 250mm (9.8 inch) longer front doors, and moving the rear window forward 200mm (7.9 inches). Since the exterior conversion demands interior changes as well, the X6 “coupe” comes with modified front seats similar as in coupe model that tilt and slide forward allowing access to the rear seat.
Since performance is sometimes associated with a coupe-like design, the X6 by ArmoTech can be ordered with upgraded engine, sportier suspensions, a modified exhaust and of course, performance brakes.
Other available options included an aggressive body kit, custom wheels, alcantara upholstery and a sport steering wheel.
No pricing at the moment, and even though ArmoTech announces an availability worldwide, the discussion around passing the safety tests remain.
