Journalists have noticed a prototype of the high-performance crossover BMW X6 M. The car will most likely be shown next year.

The attached video can start with a car that has already been officially introduced – this is a high-performance M8 convertible. But wait a few seconds, and the camera will switch the focus to another car of the sports brand BMW M.

We are talking about the next generation of the “charged” X6 M crossover, which is likely to be shown next year, since the usual X6 has not yet been introduced.

It is expected that the third generation of the coupe-shaped crossover in its usual form will most likely debut before the end of this year. The most powerful version of the novelty (up to the full X6 M) will be the X6 M50i with the same engine as the recently released X5 M50i and X7 M50i crossovers. Engine power will be 523 horsepower. But the high-performance X6 M will have in stock 600 hp in standard execution and 617 hp in the Competition specification.

  Returning to the prototype, we can see that it seems to already have a serial body and headlights, not to mention a spectacular exhaust and a more sporty-tuned suspension. It is still a bit strange to see how a large and heavy crossover easily overcomes many impassable corners of a race track, but almost all European automakers strive for this, testing their future products. BMW is testing everything from the compact hatchback of the 1st series up to representatives of the flagship family of the 8th series. They even noticed the minivans of the 2nd Active Tourer / Gran Tourer series. Which, as we wrote earlier, will not be represented in their new generation.

Not so long ago, our publication wrote that the BMW M3 and M4 will debut in 2020 with 500-horsepower engines.
