For all intents and purposes this car is the ///M version of the X6 whether BMW call it that or not. BMW has long stated it would not produce an ///M version of its popular SAVs, but those were during the days of the X5, we dont know if BMW will be hard and fast with this rule when it comes to the X6.
Regardless, this car does exist, it does sport quad exhausts (///M trademark), some kind of fender grills or emblem (another ///M signature) and a very agressive body kit. But as always, BMW is never predictable, so time will tell what this car will be and more importantly what will be under the hood. (Rumors as they stand are for the M5 V10

With BMWs X6 Active Hybrid now well advanced in its development
process, the appearance of this hybrid X5 is not entirely unexpected.
Spinning off the hybrid technology on the X5s largely related
platform seems a no-brainer in this increasingly fuel-conscious
If the huge hood bulge wasnt enough of a giveaway that a new hybrid
powertrain resides within the X5, the neon green warning sticker
affixed to the X5s backlight seemed to announce the state of affairs
plainly enough. It reads: “Caution: Hybrid-Prototype (High Voltage
The real question regarding this X5 Hybrid is whether its running a
gasoline or diesel engine. BMW showed the X5 Efficient Dynamics
Active Hybrid concept at the 2008 Geneva Motor Show–which utilized
Munichs 2.0-liter, twin-turbocharged four-cylinder diesel engine in
combination with a 20 horsepower electric motor. This was a definite
break from the strategy revealed with the petrol-based … CONTINUED
AutoZeitung reports that BMW plans to unveil the M3 CSL at the 2009 Frankfurt Motor Show.
This is cut and pasted from Motor Authority:
“Since the new E90 series BMW M3 was revealed at the Frankfurt Auto Show last year, true BMW enthusiasts have been intrigued, but waiting for the CSL to come along. Standing for Coupe, Sport, Lightweight, those three letters name the most track-focused and pure driver’s cars BMW has to offer. News of the new model is beginning to leak out, with reports claiming it will be on sale by the beginning of 2010.

Initial Impressions: My wife and I arrived in Spartanburg/Greenville Airport via Delta Airways that evening. Called the Marriott for pickup and 15 mins later we were picked up in a Green 2008 BMW X5 4.8i that whisked us to checkin. Very sweet ride! I wanted to drive the X5 and was impressed by the build and quality of the X5. I had considered trading up my 2003 X5 4.4i for one when they 1st debuted but held off. Its V8 sounds sweet better than my 4.4i (but you are on here to hear about the X5 now are you) LOL. Very nice service from the drive and hotel staff as my wife forgot to bring closed toe shoes (required for the driving courses and factory tour) so the BMW/Marriot driver … CONTINUED
