Sporting the launch color, Long Beach Blue Metallic, the new X6 M looks just as fast as it drives, and fits perfectly within the South African surroundings. 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.
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.
The 2015 BMW X6 M starts at $103,050 in the U.S., including $950 Destination and Handling.
