In 2008 BMW took another bold
step forward with the world’s first
Sports Activity Coupé, the BMW
X6. This highly innovative vehicle
captures the features and design
qualities typical of a large Coupé combined
with the X family high driving
position and versatility. The X6 has
secured an unrivalled position in the
Middle East market reporting sales of
2,372 units since its launch in 2008.
Now, the combination of power,
agility and character of both the BMW
X5 M and the X6 M results in a level
of driving performance never seen
before in their respective classes.
Both models offer unparalled performance
in every respect, providing
dynamic driving qualities unique to any
of their rivals,
and ensuring an
in challenging motoring
conditions or in everyday traffic.
Both models are powered by a
newly developed M TwinPower Turbo
V8 high-performance engine delivering
555 hp at an engine speed range
between of 6,000 rpm and a top speed
electronically limited to 250km/h.
The six-speed sports automatic gearbox
allows for extremely short shift
times and very smooth gear-changes.
The new M TwinPower Turbo
engine develops outstanding output
and performance with equally outstanding
efficiency. In addition to
direct High Precision Injection, both
the BMW X5 M and the X6 M are
equipped with a wide range of BMW’s
EfficientDynamics technologies that
offer a significant reduction in fuel
consumption and CO2 emission.
BMW’s intelligent xDrive allwheel-
drive system improves traction
on rough terrain and enhances driving
dynamics on the road. BMW’s xDrive
is naturally geared to the specific
power and performance characteristics
of the BMW X5 M and the X6 M.
Dynamic Performance Control, a
unique technology which delivers
uncompromised tracking stability on
the road comes standard on both models.
The xDrive also interacts with
the cars’ special M suspension including
Adaptive Drive and the newly developed
Servotronic Power Steering, to
ensure the dynamic driving behaviour
so characteristic of a BMW M Car.
