The all-new BMW X5M and BMW X6M – the ultimate in BMW M performance – have arrived in the Middle East.

Combining hallmark high performance engineering with everyday practicality, these models are set to further strengthen BMW’s X models, which currently accounts for around 50 per cent of BMW sales in the Middle East.

These second generation models follow on from their 2009 predecessors and set the benchmark in terms of driving dynamics in the high-performance Sports Activity Vehicle (SAV) and Sports Activity Coupé (SAC) segments.

The striking M design and distinctive high-class interior of the two newest additions to the BMW M GmbH stable ensure that these models make an impact. When the foot hits the gas pedal drivers can take advantage of the BMW X5M and X6M’s latest-generation 4.4l V8 engine which uses innovative M TwinPower Turbo technology to push torque and output to even higher performance levels.

With the new M TwinPower Turbo engine, the all-new BMW X5 M and all-new BMW X6 M have the most powerful engine ever developed by BMW for an all-wheel-drive vehicle. Boasting innovative M TwinPower Turbo technology with a pair of TwinScroll turbochargers, cross-bank exhaust manifolds,

Valvetronic and High Precision Direct Petrol Injection, the 4.4l V8 produces maximum output of 423 kW/575 hp. From 0 to 100 km/h (62 mph) in 4.2 seconds through the standard eight speed M Steptronic transmission with Drivelogic, top speed is limited to 250 km/h (155mph). At the same time, the fuel consumption and CO2 levels of both models has been reduced by 20 per cent.

Cutting a low-slung figure on the road, mixed tyres showcase the all-new BMW X5M and X6M’s sporty track width, while an interior combining sporty features, exclusive materials and flawless workmanship complement their dynamic exterior presence perfectly. The M instrument cluster, M leather steering wheel with aluminium gearshift paddles and M gearshift lever – which works in the same way as the familiar M Double Clutch Transmission – are complemented by electrically operated M sports seats for the driver and front passenger, an M driver’s footrest and the optional Head-Up Display which, in addition to the standard system, also includes an M-specific display with gear indicator, rev band and shift lights. Additional interior options include the Merino full-leather trim and M multifunction seats.

Customers can also enjoy further customisation with BMW Individual’s range of exclusive paint finishes like the BMW Individual Azurte Black metallic and Pyrite Brown metallic. Other options from the BMW Individual collection include the roof liner available in Alcantara Smoke White, Alcantara Scotch Dark and Alcantara Anthracite, the three interior trims; Piano Finish Black, Sen Light Brown fine wood and Ash Volcano Brown fine wood.
