LIKE SNUGGLING. WITH A BEAST.

The muscular shoulder line culminates in an eye-catching rear spoiler. Directly below are the M rear apron and the diffuser, which are surrounded by two M double tailpipe finishers as a sporty final touch. The side view is characterised by the two-part crease line and the clearly emphasised sill lines of the Sports Activity Coupé, while the M gill with Air Breather delivers a reduction in air turbulence in the front wheel housing. The M double slat kidney grille and the M typical front apron with large air inlets underscore the exceptional driving dynamics of the BMW X6 M. In the cockpit, drivers and passengers become pilots when the M sports seats supply the perfect hold on fast curves.

You quickly forget that you are not driving in a little sports car but rather an SUV.
Timo Glock, race driver DTM, on testing the BMW X6 M on the racetrack in Austin, Texas.

BEST LAP TIME. EVEN OFF THE RACETRACK.

The technical highlights of the BMW X6 M.

M Servotronic.

The M Servotronic, a unique design of the BMW M GmbH, optimally adapts steering wheel resistance according to speed, ensuring direct and precise steering even at high speeds. At the same time, it offers maximum comfort as a result of the reduced amount of force needed to turn the wheel, along with maximum manoeuvrability when parking or navigating curvy roads.

8-speed M Steptronic transmission with Drivelogic.

The 8-speed M Steptronic transmission with Drivelogic sets new benchmarks in dynamics and shifting. The driver can shift very dynamically at top speeds and use the Drivelogic button to select one of three shifting modes: from comfortable and efficient, to dynamic, to racetrack dynamics with extra-short shifting times. Manuel shifting is possible via the M gear selector or the M gearshift paddles on the steering wheel. The integrated Launch Control enables maximum acceleration from a standstill. This is also the first torque converter to enable “creep on demand” through the Low Speed Assistant.

M Chassis settings.

Firmer suspension spring tuning and a 10-millimetre drop in ride height team up with the Dynamic Drive active roll stabilisation system to bring about an effective reduction in body roll and movement. In addition, the BMW X6 M comes as standard with air suspension with self-levelling at the rear axle. Dynamic Damper Control with electronically adjustable dampers – the driver can select from three modes (COMFORT, SPORT and SPORT+) at the touch of a button – ensures the perfect balance between dynamic flair and ride comfort.

M specific BMW xDrive.

BMW xDrive intelligent all-wheel drive plays a key role in the outstanding dynamics of the BMW X6 M. The system employs an electronically controlled multiplate clutch to allow fully variable distribution of drive between the front and rear axles – from 100 per cent at the rear to up to 100 per cent at the front. This ensures the best possible traction in all road conditions. In the interests of greater agility, xDrive brings a rear-biased basic set-up to the BMW X6 M.

M Drive.

M Drive allows for the individual configuration of personal driver profiles from comfortable gliding all the way up to a sporty-direct set-up for use on the racetrack. Activating either of the two saved profiles (and all of the settings saved with them) is as simple as touching one of the two M Drive buttons integrated into the M leather steering wheel.

M Compound brakes.

M compound brakes have benefited from motorsport technology, allowing them to maintain constant effectiveness and brake-fade stabilisation, even under demanding usage. The use of various highly resilient materials results in excellent thermal stability, long-term durability and precise braking. It also reduces the brakes' weight, which has a positive effect on agility, dynamics and acceleration.

MOTORSPORT CHARACTER – EVEN THE SOUND.

The highlights of the M TwinPower Turbo 8-cylinder petrol engine.

M TwinPower Turbo 8-cylinder petrol engine.

Boasting innovative M TwinPower Turbo technology with a pair of TwinScroll turbochargers, cross-bank exhaust manifolds, VALVETRONIC and High Precision Direct Petrol Injection, the 4.4-litre V8 produces maximum output of 423 kW/575 hp between 6,000 and 6,500 rpm. A race-tested cooling system with four circuits and ten radiators withstands the highest thermal loads. An engine like no other.

Racetrack-ready engine oil supply.

The aim in the development of BMW M cars is to master the world’s most challenging race track at race speed without a hitch. The extreme lateral and longitudinal acceleration generated when lapping the Ring places huge demands on the engine’s oil supply. But sophisticated oil sump and suction snorkel geometry allows the new BMW X6 M to hit up to 1.2 g without creating a problem.

Performance in numbers.

Acceleration 0-100 km/h in s: 4.2*
Performance in kW (PS) at 1/min: 423 (575)/6,000-6,500
Max. torque (Nm) at 1/min: 750/2,200-5,000

* With 8-speed M Steptronic transmission with Drivelogic.

Racetrack-ready cooling concept.

The science behind the optimal cooling of the drive components for maximum performance: a total of four cooling circuits with 10 radiators, five coolant pumps and additional transmission cooling oil guarantee the perfect operating temperature of each component, even at a permanently high performance demand. For the best possible performance and efficiency, the cylinder’s filling ratio was increased by enlarged intercoolers.

Cross-bank cylinder exhaust manifold.

For an optimal transfer of the exhaust gas streams to the turbine wheel, the exhaust gases of two cylinders are combined with an ignition interval of 360°. For example, four twin exhaust gas turbines each drive a TwinScroll turbocharger. The separation of the gas streams continues until the impingement of the turbine wheel. Plus, optimum gas throughput is reached in the manifold and thus the best possible charge cycle in the cylinder.

TRUE EXCLUSIVITY.

TRUE EXCLUSIVITY.

The possibilities with BMW Individual.

For your personalised BMW M, the origin of true exclusivity lies in your imagination – and the professional implementation of BMW Individual. Only one of many possibilities is the BMW Individual finish in Azurite Black metallic. In direct light, the otherwise black surface reveals dark blue undertones.

Symphony for the senses.

The BMW X6 M raises the bar on interior standards. As one of the especially high-quality versions of the BMW Individual leather ‘Merino’ finely structured, this combination of leather accessories in Smoke White really impresses along with the leather-clad instrument control panel in Scotch dark. An unparalleled colour combination that promises a luxurious interior feeling. The Piano finish Black interior trim forms a fascinating contrast to the silky-matte, smoky-white leather ‘Merino’ finely structured by BMW Individual.
