The next generation X6 M (F86) continues testing at the Nurburgring and has dropped a bit of camouflage.

The F85 X5 M has been spotted in testing since late 2012, and now it’s time for the F86 X6 M to hit the test circuit.

It’s not difficult to identify this next generation X6 M as it bears the tell-tale M model signs – huge front air intakes, more aggressive sideskirts and rear diffuser, blue M brakes, and cross drilled rotors (the first for any X6 … CONTINUED
