The new BMW X6 M Sports Activity Coupe (SAC) - featuring the most powerful engine ever developed by BMW for an all-wheel drive vehicle - has been unveiled today.

The new BMW X6 M combines the characteristic features of the BMW X family - exclusivity, robustness, agility and everyday usability - with the commitment to high performance that defines an M vehicle. The latter is highlighted by the vehicle's impressive performance figures. The 4994-lb (2265-kg) model completes the sprint from 0 to 60 mph in just 4 seconds in conjunction with the new eight-speed M Steptronic transmission.

The 2015 BMW X6 M will have a starting price of $103,050 when it arrives in US showrooms in the Spring of 2015.

BMW X6 M's Muscular Exterior Styling

The looks of the new BMW X6 M foretells its performance potential. With its exterior painted fully in body color, the model cuts a low-slung figure on the road, while mixed tires showcase its sporty track width. Additional exterior design modifications, moreover, elevate the M model even further than before from the standard BMW X6. Large air intakes at the front end, side gills with a model badge and Air Breathers, signature M exterior mirrors in twin-stalk style, a typically M four-tailpipe exhaust system and a rear spoiler give it a standalone look M fans will immediately recognize. Setting the seal on this exclusive range of features are standard M-specific, forged 21-inch M light-alloy wheels.

Interior Design

Inside, the M instrument cluster, M leather steering wheel with aluminum gearshift paddles and M gearshift lever - which works in the same way as the familiar M Double Clutch Transmission gearshift lever - are complemented by electrically operated M multi-function seats for the driver and front passenger, an M driver's footrest and the optional Head-Up Display which, in addition to the standard information, also includes an M-specific display with gear indicator, rev band and shift lights.

2015 BMW X6 M customers also have the choice between various options exclusive to the M models, such as Merino full-leather trim. And there's also a choice of two new and exclusive M paint finishes - Long Beach Blue Metallic and Donington Grey Metallic.

567-Horsepower Engine

The new M TwinPower Turbo V8 for the BMW X6 M is the most powerful engine ever developed by BMW for an all-wheel-drive vehicle. Boasting innovative M TwinPower Turbo technology with a pair of TwinScroll turbochargers, cross-bank exhaust manifolds, VALVETRONIC and High Precision Direct Injection, the 4.4-liter V8 produces maximum output of 567 hp between 6,000 and 6,500 rpm. That represents a 3 percent increase over the predecessor model. The step up is even clearer when it comes to the power development of the new engine. Peak torque has been boosted by 53 lb-ft which equates to a rise of 10 percent. Its 553 lb-ft can be enjoyed across a broad rev range between 2,200 and 5,000 rpm.

At the same time, fuel consumption of the 2015 BMW X6 M in the European cycle (official EPA values will be available closer to the start of sales) has been cut by 20 percent, CO2 emissions are likewise down by more than 20 percent, to 258 g/km. The model accelerates from 0 to 60 mph in 4.0 seconds through the standard eight-speed M Steptronic transmission with Drivelogic. Top speed is limited to 155 mph (250 km/h) or 174 mph (280 km/h) with the optional M Driver's Package.
