Great short video with some excellent aerial camera work by BMWTrueNorth.
Here are the first real life photos of the F16 X6 with full set of M Performance Parts. The big catch here….. see the first BMW sourced fixed caliper 4 piston brakes on any BMW X vehicle.
Well folks, we’re all done here at the 2011 Geneva auto show and hope you enjoyed the coverage as much as we enjoyed sharing it with our community. Geneva is always an exciting show because of all shows, it’s arguably the largest in the world and always features an unrivaled number of exotics and tuning companies on display. Geneva is also traditionally one of the most important shows for BMW due to its proximity to BMW’s home market and prominence among the auto show circuit events.

While touring the Geneva autoshow, you come across all sorts of BMWs, not just the OEM products BMW has on display, but a whole array of cars from aftermarket tuners. Here is the Lumma CLR X650, based on the BMW X6.
The massive bodykit widens the SUV by 5 cm on each side with an accompanying front bumper that means business. Carbon fibre is on tap a plenty to give the pure aftermarket look to BMW’s most sporty SUV. In the end, this isn’t my cup of … CONTINUED
Enco Exclusive, a German tuner, has released its BMW X6 aero kit package. It’s the first dual color X6 we have seen and is matched to new front and rear bumpers with integrated LED lights and exhaust cutouts, side skirts, widened fenders and rocker panels. Wheels are black 23″ JURA aluminum wheels, with time-attack style pinstripes. An aftermarket exhaust has also been fitted. However, this is purely a cosmetic enhancement kit and no performance upgrades are included.
Ever wish that the coupe-shaped X6 was an actual coupe? Well, that can now come true. The Russian tuner ArmorTech has now been able to convert the X6 from a 4-door SAV to a 2-door SAV coupe.
They were able to accomplish this by pushing the B-pillar backwards, adding 250mm (9.8 inch) longer front doors, and moving the rear window forward 200mm (7.9 inches). As part of the conversion, the company also installed modified front seats which tilt … CONTINUED
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.
The X6M seems to be the current vehicle of tuning choice for several notable tuners. At the 2010 Geneva show, Lumma has debuted their CLR X 650 M, a visually and mechanically upgraded version of the X6M. The cosmetic upgrades are obvious, but underneath the hood, the power has been bumped to 650ps.
Hamann has debuted its “Tycoon” X6M at the 2010 Geneva Motor Show. the Tycoon is a 670hp/737lb-ft torque monster (+123hp / 236tq over factory), and it looks like it. The ECU has been reflashed and paired with an exhaust system. While some may not like the radical look, this is undeniably a car which gets some attention.
This eye catching Lumma CLR X650 was recently spotted in Paris traveling with a caravan of exotics, including a white AMG Black Series and Bugatti Veyron. From Autogespot
