“We enhance the trust in the car, trying to get more performance,” Bernd Limmer from the BMW M GmbH said in the video when questioned what are the differences between the stock X6 and the M model.

“V8 M Turbo Engine with twin scroll turbo chargers – enhanced, of course. All in this all-wheel-drive X6,” he said about the engine. Talking about the chassis, Limmer explained that “the systems are equal to the basis-version, but more rear-concentrated. It should behave like a rear wheel drive. There's less torque at the front axle. The car is less understeered and keeps in track.”

Just like the X5 M, the X6 M comes with BMW's Dynamic Performance Control. “The motor will vary the torque from the right to the left. So the faster wheel will even be faster, instead of slower,” Limmer explained.
