BMW X3 M and X4 M

BMW presented the first official showing of the highly anticipated BMW X3 M and BMW X4 M today on the Nurburgring, right before this weekend’s DTM stage.

The two camouflaged SUVs were driven around for a couple of laps to display its features and to tell us what we can expect when it actually unveils in a few months’ time.

BMW confirmed the addition of a new engine – “the technological highlight of the BMW X3 M and BMW X4 M is a newly developed straight six-cylinder engine with M TwinPower Turbo technology and high-revving characteristics,” but gave no hint of its specifications. The S58 engine is an M-tuned version of the B58 3-liter straight six mills with a power of at least 450 HP that will be used not just for the X3 and X4 models but also for future M car models.

Part of the development process is the specific tuning of the M xDrive technology introduced for the first time in the new BMW M5. This technology is deployed in the BMW X3 M and BMW X4 M to ensure constant supreme and performance-oriented transfer of engine power to all four wheels – BMW

This indicates that the X3 M and X4 M models would be the first M SUVs to use the new M xDrive system which allows the driver to choose where the power goes, which can make this soon-to-be-unveiled super-SUVs probably the only ones in the world that can transfer power to the rear axle while on the track.
