Sporting the launch color, Long Beach Blue Metallic, the new X6 M looks just as fast as it drives, and fits perfectly within the beautiful Texan race track.
The 2015 BMW X6 M will start at $103,050, including $950 Destination and Handling.
The M SUV also comes in another new color, Donington Grey Metallic. The typical exterior colors are available as well: Mineral White Metallic, Carbon Black Metallic, Silverstone Metallic, Melbourne Red Metallic and Alpine White.
Two packages are offered for the M SUVS: Driver Assistance Plus and the Executive Package. Two choices of wheels are available, the 21″ M Light Alloy Style 612M and 20″ Style 611M.
Under the hood, the X6 M sports a reworked M TwinPower Turbo engine, a V8 that provides more power and torque, and better power delivery.
The peak output of the new M turbocharged engine is 567 hp, three percent higher than that of its predecessor and is available between 6,000 and 6,500 rpm. At the same time, the engine’s peak torque has been boosted by around 10 percent to 553 lb-ft, which can be enjoyed across an extremely broad rev band – from 2,200 to 5,000 rpm.
