The big bad bruiser of the BMW range is, without a doubt, the X6. If you want to go to the absolute extreme, the BMW X6 M model will be waiting for you, with its V8 engine and menacing looks.

As if the Bimmer didn’t already look mean as hell, the owner decided to also add some aftermarket goodies to it.
Up front you’ll notice a new carbon fiber splitter joined by M Performance gloss black kidney grilles adorned with the M badge and a nightvision camera. Move on to the sides and you’ll also spot new side sills made of the same material as well as Vorsteiner lightweight wheels that seem to be a bit overwhelmed by the sheer size of the car. Round the back an Akrapovic diffuser holds the four titanium exhaust tips together, with carbon fiber ornaments that tell us this isn’t the stock exhaust, while an AC Schnitzer wing adorns the boot.
According to Akrapovic’s website, their exhaust system brings some 5 extra horsepower to the mix as well as 8.4 Nm (6.2 lb-ft) of torque. That means the X6 M now has 580 HP and some 758 Nm (560 lb-ft) of torque at its disposal, coming from the twin-turbo 4.4-liter V8 under the hood. Oh, and a better sound altogether as well, something we can all rally behind.
