The BMW X6 M Sports Activity Coupe is the first xDrive BMW model to get the M treatment, with the M version of the BMW X5 to follow in 2010.
The BMW X6 M premiered at the New York Auto Show earlier this year, where its new BMW M TwinPower Turbo engine was revealed. The powerhouse delivers 408kW/555hp and 680Nm, and sprints from 0 to 100kmh in 4.7 seconds, which BMW says is quicker than current segment leading Porsche Cayenne Turbo S.
Dealers are taking orders now for what will be strictly limited production for New Zealand.
Pricing for the BMW X6 M starts at $240,000 with cars due to arrive in dealerships in November.
