BMW's hotted-up full-size SUVs have been outed ahead of launch, wearing an aggressive Competition suit.
The upcoming BMW X5 and X6 M have been leaked ahead of launch, revealing their aggressive styling and carbon-fibre detailing.
The photos, posted on Bimmerpost, reveal both super-SUVs will have pumped-up guards and gaping air intakes up front, along with what looks like carbon-fibre detailing around their edges.
Down back, there's a more aggressive diffuser, blacked-out badging and a carbon lip spoiler, in keeping with the formula laid out by other Competition models.
Speaking of the M5, power in the X5 M and X6 M is expected to come from a variation of that car's 4.4-litre, twin-turbo V8 engine. It'll be all-wheel drive, but whether the clever rear-drive mode featuring in BMW's flagship performance sedan carries over remains to be seen.
With that in mind, we'd bank on a 100km/h sprint time under four seconds, and a top speed nudging 300km/h.
There's no confirmed launch date for the X5 and X6 M, but we'd suggest they're likely to lob later this year wearing a 2020 model year badge. Stay tuned.
