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.
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.
Manhart has announced its 3-stage supercharger tuning program for the BMW M3, good for up to 655 HP, 0-100km/hr in 3.7 seconds, and a top speed of 350km/h. Also detailed is Manhart’s tuning program for the X5M and X6M. Full details and photos inside.
BMW has announced full details of the X5 M Sport package, as well as new options for the X5M and X6M models. Full details and press release inside.
Lumma didnt stop at just tuning the regular X6 (with their CLR X650 GT), but has now taken on the X6M! The result is the Lumma CLR X650 M which features a similar bodykit as the GT, but gets a nearly 100hp power bump (from 555hp/680nm to 650hp/830nm)! 0-62 is achieved in 4.5 seconds with a 194mph top speed. The CLR X650M will debut at the 2010 Geneva Auto Salon in March.
