Overview

BMW has bolted twin turbos on to the X6's V8, pumping out 600Nm of torque

BMW logo22 Jan 2009

BMW is well and truly back on the turbo bandwagon. Having already introduced the brilliant twin-turbo I6 engine that is making its way through the range, the German prestige brand has decided to bolt a turbo on to both banks of its new 4.4-litre V8 engine. The resulting powerplant belts out a healthy 300kW and a mighty 600Nm of torque, blasting it from 0-100km/h in just 5.4 seconds. The first vehicle to take the new engine is the boldly styled X6 four-wheel drive – a cross between a sports coupe and a traditional SUV. Built off the same base as the X5 4WD but sporting unique panels, the X6 offers the ride height of an off-roader mixed with coupe styling. It is no lightweight, hitting the scales at 2190kg, and is longer and wider than the X5. The X6 is also available with a twin-turbo I6 petrol and turbo-diesel six engines.
Model release date: 1 January 2009 to 1 January 2015
