Vorsteiner is working on some new kit for the BMW X6M, here are some of the initial photos of their project.
The Japanese tuning company Vertice has released its X6 aero kit. The kit is entirely carbon fiber construction and offers a less aggressive alternative to the mostly wild aero kits that are currently on the market for the X6.
BMW tuner RDSport has always been good about coming up with conceptuals on new tuning packages on BMWs and putting them into play via photoshop. Many times, they get their work out before the car has even hit the streets in an official capacity, as in this case. Although details are still thin on this car, I love the proposed bodywork and the wheels suit the new bodykit well. Heres to hoping we see the real deal soon enough!
The F10 Alpina B5 has been undergoing testing near Alpina’s headquarters. The F10 B5 is expected to be based on the F10 550i, with a reworked 4.4L N63 motor (V8 twin turbo). The new B5 features the current signature front bumper lip, sideskirts, wheels, quad exhaust, and raised trunk lid. An impression of the final B5 is below.
AC Schnitzer has debuted the ACS X6M at the AutomodEx Tuner Show in Dubai. Currently, they are only showcasing the cosmetic aero kit, but have plans for engine tuning as well. The centerpiece of the aero parts is the hood, which contains a see through window allowing a view of the engine (as seen on other cars such as Corvette ZR1, Ferraris, and Lamborghinis). Other parts include full bumper and fender replacements, sideskirts, 22″ wheels, rear diffuser, and rear wing.
