New BMW X6 M
A number of models have been spied undergoing winter testing and the BMW X6 model has failed to escape the automotive based photographers. A number of images of the BMW model have been released online along with the likes of the M4 and the M3.
The BMW brand will be looking to rival the new Mercedes S Class Coupe which is set to come out and up against the new 4 Series model. However, whilst BMW are set to release a new 4 Series and M Series of models, the X6M will be a surprise.
The German manufacturer has given us arguably the most exciting additions to the car market in a number of years. The new M4 and M3 models along with the 4 Series and the i-3 and i-8 are set to put the German manufacturer back on the top.
The year of 2013 resulted in Japanese manufacturer, Toyota, returning to the top of the worlds best selling charts for the first time since 2009. Major rivals to the BMW firm, Volkswagen, finished in third having achieved a considerable amount of success with the Audi, Seat and Skoda brands.
Nissan had a very successful year in the electric car market and manufacturers such as BMW will be hoping to put an end to the success. The Leaf model has been the stand out performer in the market and the i-3 model is set to run it off the road.
The new M variant of the X6 model will feature a lowered suspension and redesigned front and back bumper as well as the quad exhaust system as seen on the standard X6 model. Power will come from the 4.4 litre twin turbo V8 engine and will be capable of achieving 0-62 in just 4.7 seconds. The X6 model will also be limited to a top speed of 155 mph.
The new x6 M will join the current second generation X6 line up which itself is sat alongside the likes of the X2 and the X4 at BMW.
