The 2016 BMW X6 M is heading to Nurburgring for more high-speed testing. The second generation F86 X6 M will be unveiled later this year with sales beginning in Spring 2015. Built atop the new F16 BMW X6, the all-wheel drive X6 M gets the typical M treatment with a dynamic front-end, large air intakes and air breathers, along with a wider track and the  M iconic quad tailpipes.

The F86 X6 M has also grown in size, rising from 4877mm to around 4910mm.

Under the hood, the 2015 BMW X6 M is powered by an updated version of the twin turbo V8 S63Tu engine from the new M5 and M6. Rumors around the interwebs say that the new powerplant will produce nearly 600 horsepower, a significant upgrade even over the Competition Package developed for the M5 and M6. The torque will also get a bump well above the 500 lb-ft limit. The new X6 M will also get a DCT box.

The top speed will likely be electronically limited to 174 mph (280 km/h).
