Press release

The latest models from BMW’s M Division arrive in U.S. Dealers this Fall.
Woodcliff Lake, NJ - April 27, 2009... On the occasion of the world debut of the BMW X5 M at the Shanghai International Auto Show, BMW today announced U.S. retail pricing for both the X5 M and the X6 M. The X6 M was unveiled for the first time at the New York International Auto Show on April 8th. When the X5 M and X6 M go on sale this fall as 2010 model vehicles, they will retail for $86,225 and $89,725 respectively (including $825 Destination & Handling).

Both the BMW X5 M and X6 M feature a new reverse flow V8 engine with patented twin-turbo technology. The lag-eliminating Cylinder-bank Comprehensive Manifold (CCM) enables the engine to produce 555 horsepower and accelerate both models from 0 to 60mph in 4.5 seconds. At BMW M, “the chassis must always be more powerful than the engine.” The X5 M and X6 M exploit the limits of physics through their reworked Integrated Chassis Management systems to provide maximum road-holding without conceding to harsh ride characteristics.

Power is delivered through an M derivative of BMW’s xDrive all-wheel drive, allowing M typical throttle-steering. At the rear axle is BMW’s revolutionary Dynamic Performance Control, tailored by BMW M to ensure near-perfect distribution of power. Four M-characteristic tailpipes emerge from the aerodynamic diffuser in the rear. Enormous brakes round out the package, providing confidence under all conditions.

The modern, sustainable legacy of BMW M began in 1985 when engineers placed the snarling, race-bred inline-6 engine from the M1 supercar into the production BMW 5 Series sedan, reworked the suspension and brakes, and created BMW’s first M5. The M5 redefined the capabilities of a sedan with levels of power, precision, and linear control never before imaginable. Ever since, the craftsmen at BMW M have been focused on finding new ways to expand the performance boundaries using existing BMW models as a basis.

Some hate what BMW is doing especially for this M series and of course the obnoxious price for this car. Well can’t blame BM, they see their production value and name uncompromisable.

That’s a bright and thought provoking computation Whitemamba. But you know people will still buy this SUV M series and some would not mind the price after all. Its sure expensive and there are lot of SUV other that can equal as competitor but this SUV has etched its niche in the market already.

Just a little mathmatics here. A fully loaded 2010 Mustang GT $36000 + 2010 Shelby GT500 starting price at $54000 = $90000 total OR BMW X6M = $89,725. What can you say? This not so sport car and not SUV is expensive.

Hey we just saw the video for Lexus SUV. That SUV is hybrid whereas this BM is not. Although these cars’ engines are impressive and really sporty.

A lot of SUV competitors have been featured last week like the Lexus. Now we have the pricing for BM’s X6 M and X5 M.The price is quite reasonable though with its V8 twin-turbo engine. Us is thrilled for this two performance SUVs.
