AC Schnitzer presents a world first at the “Auto Car Show” in Zürich in November 2014. From 6 to 9.11.2014, the Aachen-based tuning experts present their own typically unique and outstandingly athletic version of the BMW X4.
Athletes are judged by their performance – and the BMW X4 by AC Schnitzer doesn’t disappoint in this area. The Aachen tuners let the BMW X4 20i (export version) loose on the road with 245 hp. The BMW X4 28i delivers a mighty 294 hp, and the BMW X4 35i will even impress world championship judges with its 360 hp. Equally impressive is the casual way in which the X4 by AC Schnitzer powers forward from any speed. (more…)

The new BMW X5 M and new BMW X6 M (fuel consumption combined for both models: 11.1 l/100 km (25.5 mpg imp); CO2 emissions combined for both models: 258 g/km) see BMW M GmbH setting the pace once again in the high-performance Sports Activity Vehicle (SAV) and Sports Activity Coupe (SAC) segment. When the previous generation of the two cars arrived in 2009, it was the first time the high-performance character distilled by BMW M GmbH had been transplanted into an all-wheel-drive BMW X model. The result was class-leading dynamics. The new BMW X5 M and BMW X6 M pull no punches in writing the next chapter in this success story with another significant step forward in dynamic excellence, emotionally rich M design and outstanding efficiency.

It seems like BMW is pretty committed to this whole X4 thing. Aside from the current xDrive28i and xDrive35i, we’ve captured a round of spy photos showing what our spy shooters tell us is a more dynamic M40i model.
The higher-performance hunchback follows in the footsteps of BMW’s other sub-M cars like the M235i. In fact, much like the high-po 2 Series, the M40i is expected to make use of a 3.0-liter, turbocharged six-cylinder, developing 365 to 375 horsepower. (more…)
It all started with an X. This letter was first used as a model designation for a BMW automobile as early as in the mid-1980s to indicate that it featured four-wheel drive technology. The car’s dual symmetry was the ideal allegory for the transmission of drive torque to all four wheels. 15 years ago, the letter X became the symbol of an entirely new vehicle category and, at the same time, of a very special form of driving pleasure. The BMW X5 made its debut as the world’s first Sports Activity Vehicle, soon going on to conquer not only the road but also off-road terrain, whilst attracting additional target groups to the BMW brand. Once again the German premium automobile manufacturer had demonstrated its extraordinary sense for innovative and future-oriented vehicle concepts. The introduction of the BMW X5 in 1999 laid the foundation stone for the unique success story of BMW X models on automotive markets all over the world. (more…)
Paying respect. That’s what usually has to be done when a successful car model is replaced by the new kid on the block. BMW X6 is certainly a successful model, nearly 240,000 units have been sold globally since its unveil in 2007.
Trying to understand BMW’s logic behind the plan to create their first Sports Activity Coupe is quite easy if you only look at the marketing and finance factors as the main motivators. But if you look at this from a different angle, you might see another story.
The mid-size luxury crossover was released for sale in April 2008. It surprised the industry since it created a new niche. It was revolutionary in a way for an SUV-like vehicle and paved the road not only for another BMW premium crossover, but also for competitors. (more…)
Even six years after its market introduction in spring 2008, the BMW X6 is quite literally unique on the roads: Just in time for the pending model change to the second generation of the Sport Activity Coupé and the market introduction of its little brother X4, increased numbers of pretest vehicle images started appearing online, suggesting that other premium manufacturers would soon follow suit. That’s hardly surprising. The X6, initially often ridiculed and scolded for its “political incorrectness” has developed into a real surprise success and image carrier – not in spite of but specifically because the air of unreasonability that it exudes.
