BMW has whipped the covers off the upcoming X3 M and X4 M during the DTM racing weekend at the Nürburgring.
Both cars were pre-production prototypes, however, despite the camouflaged wrap, it appears the X3 M and X4 M are very close to entering production.
Each model features large air intakes at the front, M appointments to optimised aerodynamics and an exhaust system with four tailpipes integrated into the rear apron.
Powering the pair will be a newly developed straight six-cylinder engine with M TwinPower Turbo technology and high-revving characteristics.
Engineers have developed a specific tune for the M xDrive technology first deployed in the new M5.
The all-wheel drive system will work with an active M rear axle differential to ensure the cornering dynamics, agility and precision in the driving behaviour are commensurate with the M badge.
“With their M specific performance characteristics, the BMW X3 M and the BMW X4 M will set benchmarks in terms of dynamics in their respective vehicle segment,” said Frank van Meel, President BMW M GmbH.
No date has been set for an official reveal, but the Paris motor show in October looks likely. Stay tuned!
