We wasted no time in contacting San Luis Obispo BMW dealer to get a first hand look at the X6 M and get to know its performance specs and experience some of its sheer luxury.
Functional Exterior Design
The X6 M is not only about stunning looks but incorporates functional elements all around the exteriors. The lowered aerodynamic profile gives low center of gravity and goes very well with the available 20-inch double spoke wheels that come with performance non-run-flat tires. Addition of the available Executive package gives you advanced features such as the Adaptive Full LED Headlights, Automatic High Beams and Soft-close automatic doors. Other available options to pep up the exteriors still further include Satin Aluminum Line exterior trim that adds more class. M-specific air breathers that reduce turbulence and an M Rear Diffuser that optimizes air flow improve the aerodynamics and provide full functionality on the exteriors.
The embossed Merino Leather seats are available in a wide range of combination colors and textures that express elegance. The dash is aesthetically sculped and can be decorated using the available Fineline Oakwood, Aluminum Trace or Carbon Fiber interior trims. Again, addition of the Executive Package adds Rear Manual Window Shades providing more privacy for the rear passengers and keeps out glare, a Heads-Up Display, Wi-Fi Hotspot, Wireless Charging Pad, Parking Assistant and Surround View Cameras.

One of the most beneficial features of the X6 m Sport Utility Car is the iDrive 6.0 interface that’s part of the display. It gives you voice command control to features such as navigation, playing music and BMW’s Connected Drive system that digitally gives you some useful information, access to BMW Assistance, Concierge services and a range of vehicle apps.
Ultimate in Engine Power and Drive Comfort
The spirited 4.4-liter, 32-valve M TwinPower Turbo V-8 engine over an M tuned xDrive intelligent all-wheel drive (AWD) system with an 8-speed M Sport Automatic Transmission comprises the power and drivetrain. The inbuilt Drivelogic system gives you the convenience to use the automatic transmission with steering mounted paddle shifters or the manual gear shift performance (M) specific gear lever. This marvelous combination of engine and powertrain gives you a whopping 567 hp and 553 lb-ft of torque that sets you going 0-60 mph in just about 4 seconds.
