Modified BMW X6M draws attention to brilliance of M Performance segment

Article by Christian A., on May 2, 2017

BMW introduced the M Performance Parts at the 2017 New York Auto Show in April. The Senior Product Manager, Matthew Mostafaei discussed the parts and what each one has to offer from the 763M style wheels for the M2, M3 and M4, to the Sound and Audio Kit for a Snapper Rocks Blue BMW 440i Coupe.

The other M Performance updates are evident on the BMW i and iPerformance models. These updates include a wallbox charging station with mobile app integration, a dual-voltage charger (120V or 240V), that allows you to charge thrice as quick compared to the standard cable that comes with the car.

Last month, BMW took off with its M Performance tour in India. The program involved various driving conditions such as cornering, high speed straights, dynamic braking and many more. And now, they are in Abu Dhabi.

The enhanced BMW X6M, currently displayed at Abu Dhabi’s BMW showroom is like a mobile advertisement of the brand’s M Performance. The car sports a 3D Design carbon fiber body kit, AC Schnitzer wheels and Akrapovic exhaust.

Literally from front to rear, exterior to interior, the BMW X6M screams “M Performance”. While some may find it a bit too loud, and too made up, others would applaud its body finished in a bright blue metallic finish with red accents on the sides as well as the cabin. More details that show that it was specially made with M Performance parts include the carbon mirror covers, an M Performance steering wheel, and a carbon gear selector. These are combined with a metal pedal set, black kidney grilles and a black rear badge.

That’s not all. What makes it distinct from the standard X6M models is the carbon fiber 3D Design kit – seen on the front spoiler, side skirts, and the rear diffuser. The 3D Design kit is the answer to those who want to upgrade their ride making it look more aggressive. They provide components that are all made from carbon fiber. These parts aren’t only eye catching, they actually serve a purpose reducing the mass of your vehicle, and increasing downforce at the front and rear axles. All these enhancements are finished with a set of 22-inch custom five dual-spoke wheels in gloss black.

Under the hood, it comes with the standard 570 horsepower and 553 pound feet of torque (750 Newton metres) which pushes the car to run from 0-62 miles per hour (100 kilometers per hour) in just 4.2 seconds. The X6M is indeed a fast SUV.
