A prototype was spotted near Munich sporting very little camouflage that aims to hide some of the expected M design cues: large air intakes, wider bodykit, rear diffuser and blue calipers M brakes. At the rear end, the F15 X5M features the typical quad exhaust pipes. The test mule spied also comes with the LED headlights that now flow into the 3D kidney grille.
The second generation of the high-powered X5 M will most likely driven by an adapted version of the S63Tü V8 twin-turbo engine from the BMW M5 F10. In addition to the standard 560 hp engine, BMW will most likely offer a Competition Package which delivers 575 horsepower.
The same drivetrain is also offered in the F86 BMW X6 M which will debut next year.
