The German “charged” novelty was spotted during the test runs at the Nürburgring race track. The new generation of BMW X6 crossover is sure to get a full version from M Performance – this is a BMW X6 M, but this will happen only in 2020.

The BMW X6 M50i was spotted during test runs on the Nürburgring racetrack – a published video gives us the opportunity to get a closer look at a couple of rather oddly shaped car prototypes.

Compared to the recently introduced Porsche Cayenne Coupe crossover, the third generation of the X6 in the form of the M Performance had what looks like a full production body and lights.

The sloping roofline on such a tall car again becomes a controversial moment for many people. While the giant falshradiatorny lattice is harmoniously combined with large air intakes and huge exhaust pipes, giving the coupe-SUV a “muscular” look.

Under the hood, there is a 4.4-liter V8 with a pair of turbochargers. Logic tells us that it will have about the same specification as the flagship coupe M850i. So expect power somewhere around 523 horsepower (750 Nm). If you prefer diesel, probably in some parts of the world (mainly in Europe), the X6 M50d with a 3.0-liter 4-cylinder turbo-supercharged engine with 394 hp will also be offered. (760 Nm).

This year, BMW will introduce the next-generation X6, and quite possibly, in 2019, we will also be shown versions of M Performance.
