BMW Australia has announced the official pricing and specifications for its new X6 M, which is due to arrive in showrooms this December.
This latest addition to the M division line-up will be priced from $179,900 and will represent the pinnacle of the X6 Sports Activity Coupé range.
As the answer to a question supposedly no one was asking, the X6 has proved to be a surprise niche sales hit with 734 customer deliveries in its first year.
“The X6 delivered exactly what a select group of Australian luxury buyers were crying out for,” says Stavros Yallouridis, the Australian head of BMW Group Australia.
“Now with the arrival of the X6 M, we’re able to offer an M version which will tempt performance-oriented buyers considering an ML 63 AMG or Cayenne Turbo with benefits such as faster acceleration, less weight and better fuel consumption.
On the other hand, for those seeking maximum practicality as well as performance, the X5 M is due to arrive in Australian showrooms by January 2010, priced from $172,900.
