BMW has announced a new special edition for the Japanese market, the X6 Performance Unlimited. It will be limited to only 20 units and will go on sale today. Customers will get their cars at the end of July.

The new special edition comes with the new BMW Valvetronic system that combines high-precision direct injection and twin turbo power into a 3.0-liter inline six-cylinder engine, with hybrid technology and an 8-speed automatic transmission.

The entire car is inspired by Motorsport BMW Performance. The entire exterior is covered in a silver pearl wrap with a delicate pearl glow. The X6 Performance Unlimited comes with BMW Performance 21-inch alloy wheels and a specially equipped BMW Performance aerodynamic package that includes a new front bumper, side skirts, rear diffuser, and blacked-out kidney grilles.

The interior gets Dakota leather, brushed aluminum pedals, aluminum trim, a numbered plaque, and a "BMW Performance Unlimited" logo.

This special edition is priced at 9,450,000 Yen (around $108,000 at the current exchange rates).

That is right, the new range of vehicles using diesel has a greater opportunity to become faster than any others. It will also helps the market to have an option, Just a questions, anyone here is interested in bio-diesel?

Of course, I would also love to spend the rest of my money to be able to experience the unbeatable performance of BMW X6. I know it will cost a lot but who cares? Anyways, its only a dream and I don’t think it will happen. Sigh.

Completely off topic, but in the same way a 40.000 lb truck can have a Mercedes badge on it.

Like the Europeans, the Japanese impose hefty taxes based on engine displacement. A 135 would hit your pocketbook quite a bit harder than this. I do question the choice of an automatic with this engine.

Maybe Japanese people want environmentally friendly cars so they made one for them or maybe the Germans got so pissed off they lost the world cup, So BMW decided to do a stupid move in hopes to cheer them up.

This is because Audi just isn’t particularly good at turbos. They are years behind on their technology, having no system at all of anti-lag like dual-entry/dual-scroll or variable geometry turbos.

I hate it when car companies release a "special edition" and nothing special has been done to the vehicle.

The 2010 BMW X6 M is a jacked-up $90,000 hatchback with prodigious power, amazing handling, four seats and compromised cargo space. It doesn’t make much sense, but it’s a whole lot of fun.

So it’s basically an X6M except without the engine, handling...but with a similar kit and a high price tag. Pretty bad move.
