Official: Bmw X6 gets some Performance parts

Article by Christian A., on August 26, 2010

After the 1-Series and 3-Series received the same treatment, it's time for the Bmw M6 to receive the Performance components which convey know-how from motorsport to the road. As you can see from the photos the sporting looks of the Bmw X6 are now accentuated more than ever thanks to the Performance Aerodynamics Kit consisting of a front bumper, side-sills and an insert for the rear bumper, all in special design and all finished in body color. 

This kit can also be supplemented by a rear spoiler, rear fins in matt black and a front grid finished in high-gloss black paint. The design is completed by the 21-inch Performance light-alloy wheels in Y-spoke in order to optimize the dynamic driving potential and the striking looks of the Bmw X6 (a special production method reduces the weight of each wheel by approximately 1,500 grams).

These wheels come wrapped in 285/35 R21 high performance tyres on the front ant 325/30 R21 tyres at the rear. Bmw offers also a Performance Power kit, which will be available in June 2010.

This power kit is available for the V8 power unit in the BMW X6 xDrive50i and the straight-six in the BMW X6 xDrive35i and promises to improve both acceleration and the torque.

So, the X6 xDrive50i receives an extra 30 kW/41 hp to 330 kW/448 hp and a maximum torque of 50 Newton-metres/37 lb-ft to 650 Nm/479 lb-ft. The X6 xDrive35i receives an extra 15 kW/20 hp to 240 kW/326 hp, with peak torque increasing by 50 to 450 Newton-metres/332 lb-ft.

With the power kit installed both models accelerate with 0.2 seconds faster from a standstill to 100 km/h: 5.2 seconds for the X6 xDrive50i and 6.5 seconds for the xDrive35i.

Inside, Bmw Performance offers attractive accessories such as a Performance sports steering wheel with a flattened rim at the bottom and alcantara coating for optimum grip and a pleasant touch in all temperatures. Also, the manufacturer offers the Performance aluminium pedals and driver's footrest.
