2011 BMW X6 M Review,Price,Picture
Akrapovic has been making its way down the sports car list, with tuning kits provided for the Ferrari 458 Italia and the Mitubishi Evo X. This time, however, the tuner has gone on to tuning something bigger: the BMW X6 M. So far, the secretive tuners have only released some images for the new project, but we imagine that this package will see some of the same updates as the previous ones.
A standard BMW X6 M is powered by a 4.4-liter V8 engine that delivers 555 hp at 6,000 rpm and 500 lb-ft of torque from 1500 to 5,650 rpm, but with the new exhaust system we expect to see a power increase of at least 10 HP. The new exhaust system will also be lighter by at least 14 kilos in turn making the SUV lighter. Combine all of this with a red exterior paint, a new set of wheels painted in black, and the black color of exhaust system and we get the perfect X6 M.
But the BMW owners will be most interested in what Akrapovic has in store for them, so here it is: the Evolution exhaust system for the BMW M3. This exhaust has attracted the most attention because it is made one hundred percent from titanium, reducing the total weight of the car by almost 24 kg compared with the stock one. It features optimized link pipes, new muffler system and integrated resonators. And there’s an approximate 23 hp increase in power thanks to it. A boost in torque by 34.7 Nm is also present.
The Evolution exhaust system for the BMW M3 is compatible with the E90, E92 and E93 versions. But Akrapovic also produces exhaust systems for the BMW 335i, the M6 and the X6, so if you want to add a lighter exhaust and own these models, why not take a look at their offer.
Although traction control is standard, the M Dynamic Mode (MDM) greatly reduces the aggressiveness of the system. The MDM setting allows the driver to enter a controlled drift and push the vehicle's handling to the limit. There's also a DSC-Off Mode for drivers seeking a more purist experience.
