BMW M subbrand


The M TwinPower Turbo 8-cylinder petrol engine in the BMW X6 M.

The BMW X6 M boasts two high-rev TwinScroll turbochargers. It's been tested on racetracks, and with a cooling system with four circuits and ten radiators to keep thermal stress under control and a cross-bank exhaust manifold for perfect exhaust gas flow, it delivers optimum power development and lightning-quick responsiveness. This powerplant is simply awesome. With its massive torque of up to 750 Nm, the 4.4 litre, 423 kW M TwinPower Turbo 8-cylinder petrol engine powers the BMW X6 M forward with minimum effort. It accelerates the vehicle from 0 to 100 km/h in just 4.2 seconds. Despite this top performance, fuel consumption and CO2 emissions remain moderate. Thanks to a wide range of BMW EfficientDynamics technologies, the combined values are 11.1 l/100 km and 258 g/km respectively.

Bi-Turbo direct fuel injection and typical M fine-tuning ensure that the engine responds directly to the slightest nudge of the accelerator with enthusiastic boost and excellent torque. With its motorsport-suitable cooling concept as well as an additional oil sump cover and oil drain pump, the M engine is ready to take on any challenges. Numerous innovations like sleeveless construction or a lighter, cast crankshaft continue the intelligent lightweight concept, improve dynamics and acceleration, lower consumption and enable an optimal weight distribution of almost 50:50. The reward is unprecedentedly agile driving that’s impressively underscored by the unmistakeable sound of the M engine.

*The published fuel consumption and CO2 emission figures are established according to legislated technical specifications (UNECE Regulation 101/UN Regulation 83 and SANS 20101 standards), which sets out the procedures that are used to measure the CO2 emissions and fuel consumption. The claimed figures are established using specific tests under standardised, carefully controlled conditions and may differ from consumption achieved under real world conditions with the influences of altitude, road surface, geographic conditions, vehicle options, temperature, humidity, tyres size and driving behaviour amongst others.
