Can you imagine a day in the workshop of BMW’s M division? There is no denying their genius what with masterpieces such as the M4 and M235i vouching for them, not to mention other historic cars, but during a lull I can imagine things get a bit crazy. A spare 20 minutes could result in straight six powered desk chairs or drifting toasters all before everyone calmly gets back to work. With the 2015 BMW X5 M and X6 M some of that mad creativity has found its way out.
To make their debut at the 2015 LA motor show, the BMW X5 M and X6 M put the Sport in Sports Utility Vehicle. These large SUVs have been turned from school-run material into absolute monsters. Both are powered by a 4.4 litre twin-turbocharged engine producing 564BHP and 553lb ft of torque. Considering that these cars are based upon something often seen in the Tesco car park, that is high performance indeed. An 8 speed automatic gearbox manages gear changes and the four wheel drive system is capable of sending up to 100% of power to the front or rear axel.The 2015 BMW X5 M and X6 M will both get from 0-62MPH in just 4.2 seconds as well as go onto an electronically limited top speed of 155MPH. An X5 M will set you back £90,179 and its coupe sibling £93,070.
Deliveries begin April 2015.
