With the F15 X5 now launched, BMW turns to developing its SAC (Sports Activity Coupe) sibling – the F16 X6.
The new X6 shares styling cues from both the new X5 and the upcoming X4. It shares the X5′s new headlights-meet-grilles, enlarged kidney grilles and more forward leaning front fascia. Like the X5, the X6 also features air breather vents behind its front wheels.

The BMW X6 LCI (facelift) is coming next Spring and we bring you photos which preview the coming changes.

What is this car exactly? Looks like an X6 with a hood scoop. You might be fooled into thinking that this is some sort of ///M variant. In fact this is a planned hybrid drive version of the X6 and the hood scoop is used to mount the monitoring equipment needed for testing.
Palbay does it again, this time a silver X6 is his gift to the BMW community!
