The upcoming BMW X5 M and X6 M facelift were spotted near the BMW factory in Spartanburg. The spied X5 M model reveals for the first time the new adaptive LED headlights and taillights.

Two weeks ago, BMW unveiled the 2013 BMW X6 facelift that brings visual updates to the popular Sports Activity Coupe. Previewed along with the standard X6 model is also the refreshed BMW X6 M that gets a similar life cycle impulse.

At the rear, the taillights are now two LED-fed light banks which create the brand’s hallmark night design as a harmoniously glowing light mass. The fact that they are horizontally aligned and stretch far out to the sides emphasizes both the width of the vehicle and the flowing transition between the rear quarter and the tail-end.

The spied X6 M features blue brake calipers and a power dome.

No power upgrades are planned for the X5 M so expect the same tuned up 4.4 liter V8 engine delivering 555 horsepower at 6,000 rpm and 500 lb-ft of torque from 1,500 to 5,650 rpm.

Both models are expected to debut at the 2012 New York Auto Show in April.

    Fact that only the X6M gets the bump on the hood tells me BMW had too many of those left over from the AH X6

    Have had several of the last three M5 models and in 2010 I purchased the X5M. I am sure you could not catch me in an E60 M5. Just ordered a 2013 X5M for round two. Best M Car made. Even the M CEO drives this model exclusively. WOuld have like to see a small Hp bump. I guess it will get a software upgrade!!
