Tuned First Look: Mansory Tunes 555-horsepower BMW X6 M
Mansory is living up to its reputation once again with this upgraded BMW X6 M. The showy, 555-horsepower beast wasn't ridiculous enough, so Mansory has developed a package of enhancements to the bodywork, interior, and dynamics.
Huge front air intakes make an impression but we know you're focusing on that carbon-fiber hood. Mansory says its ventilation channels optimize air flow to the engine. Matching bits of carbon-fiber can be found on the sides and the rear of the car, where a roof and extremely tasteful rear lip spoiler supposedly give the Mansory X6 M more stability at high speeds, but we're guessing most of these cars will spend more time in valet parking than at over 100 mph.
The upgrades performed on the X6 M are similar to Mansory's X5 M, but the X6's standard bodystyle combined with added eye-catching bits push this SUV over the top.
We aren't fans of the too-large 23-inch light alloy wheels, but it's hard to argue with larger brakes and a multi-piston brake system or the fatter tires. A new exhaust system and revised engine electronics are responsible for the horsepower boost to a claimed 670. Top speed is electronically limited to 186 mph.
The Mansory X6 M is wider too. Inside, a new steering wheel helps customers make the most of the retuned suspension. As Mansory explains, the rest of the interior is an open canvas: the company will be happy to customize an interior with combinations of leather, Alcantara, wood, carbon, or aluminum trim -- just bring your checkbook and imagination.
