BMW's M-powered X6 uncovered

2008-07-09 08:20

Did our spies stumble across an M version of BMW’s new X6? It definitely seems so, if you look at their photos...

The biggest give-away on this prototype is the quad exhaust and side vents, which could hint to the true identity of this not-so-mild-mannered X6.

Furthermore the vehicle appears to have a more aggressive stance than the normal X6, while at the front there are larger air intakes too.

So, all of this indicate that a performance version of the X6 is on its way.

Rumour has it that it is going to be powered by a tuned version of the 4.4-liter V8 engine, however, it could even get the current M5’s V10 engine.

An M-powered X6 will compete with Porsche’s Cayenne Turbo S, Mercedes ML63 AMG and other high-performance crossovers.
