    BMW X6 M550d - Teaser

    wink


    Re: BMW X6 M550d - Teaser

    It will be interesting. While some claim that the new high power Diesel from BMW will have 381 hp, other sources indicate power figures of around 500 hp. I still think that the 381 hp figure is more accurate but I also don't understand why BMW is doing that "powered by M" stuff. Many M GmbH customers and loyal fans will be pretty upset about it, I can remember the heated discussion about a possible M model with Diesel engine. If BMW marketing thinks that they are clever by not marketing this model as a M model but as a model "powered by M", they really think that customers are stupid. It will backfire in a way or another, I'm pretty sure about it.

    It will have 381 hp for sure.

    The car will not be a M-car - rather BMW with M-options.

     They seem to do well with the M options on the 3 series,, and 5.

    The issue here seems to be that BMW apparently wants to market the new Diesel as "powered by M". While this may sound great to non-M GmbH customers, it somehow dilutes the M brand. M styling is one thing but "powered by M" is already a completely different level. I know that BMW tries to make a difference here but M customers will be upset, especially since this is a Diesel. I know it will pass but still...

    M Power is nothing more than rain water I'm afraid.

    indeed shifting is ancient technology - so is a fuel burning engine..  I happen to like both :) 


    Re: BMW X6 M550d - Teaser

    i second that. an M should be an M but they rae diluted by now. mercedes got that better with amg. its clearly about cubic inches and power....not so much about sportscar image.

    they should not use M with the diesel. even if it had 500 hp.

    Speed has never killed anyone, suddenly becoming stationary... That's what gets you.

    Re: BMW X6 M550d - Teaser

    In March 2012 they present  in Genf a M550 with 381 hp in the 5series as well. With xdrive (!!!) and 8-gear.kiss

    ///M should be for all round performance. The combination of excellent power/weight and superb control. The first M car (excluding the M1) was the legendary E30 M3, a very sharp car with only 200PS from 2.5L and 4C.

    No huge engines and lots of  PS on heavy cars. This is an American concept, one imitated by Mercedes-AMG.

    What about the E28 M5?

    AMG did a C 30 CDI in 2002...

    The E28 M5 preceded the E30 M3 by a few months but it was the latter car that built the ///M reputation with its agility and  handling and its huge success in motorsport.

    Re: BMW X6 M550d - Teaser

    If it`s true then it will have a good price indeed.

    wink


    Re: BMW X6 M550d - Teaser

    More details have surfaced: Apparently the new X6 50d will already have the awaited X6 facelift and not the typical M look with the quad exhaust, etc.

    Base price is aprox. 20000 EUR more expensive than the current X6 40d.

    Meaning: The X6 50d will cost around 85000 EUR, the X6M costs 109000 EUR.

    Well...performance should be great for a Diesel, I expect 0-100 kph in 5.2 seconds or so.

    Re: BMW X6 M550d - Teaser

    As I have said before:

     

    New details are starting to emerge about the BMW X6 M50d and M550d xDrive.

    First up, the X6 M50d is expected to go into production in April with a tri-turbo 3.0-liter six-cylinder engine that develops 381 PS (280 kW / 375 hp) and 740 Nm (546 lb-ft) of torque - 40 Nm (30 lb-ft) more than originally speculated. This could enable the model to accelerate from 0-100 km/h in 4.9 seconds which is just 0.2 seconds slower than the standard X6 M.

    The report also indicates the M550d xDrive will use the same engine and accelerate from 0-100 km/h in 4.7 seconds. In terms of efficiency, the sedan is expected to average 6.3 L/100 km (37.3 mpg US / 44.8 mpg UK) with CO2 emissions of 165 g/km. If everything pans out, it will roll off the assembly line in March and be offered exclusively in Europe.
