German tuning firm Senner Tuning AG has performed a subtle tuning transformation on an Alpine White 2010 BMW X6 xDrive40d. This diesel model is only available in Europe at the moment.
Starting with the bi-turbo 3.0-liter engine which produces 306 PS (225 kW) and 600 Nm (443 lb-ft) in standard form, the firm from Ingelheim has reprogrammed the ECU and added a sport air filter. The result is the removal of the Vmax-lock and power output increasing to 336 PS (247 kW) and 665 Nm (490 lb-ft) of torque.
The exterior is equipped with ? BMW Performance front bumper with large air intakes in the honeycomb design, glossy black kidney grilles and a rear bumoer diffuser with “special” fins. Also, the tailgate gets a trio of black rear spoilers two of which are placed on the sides of the rear glass. (more…)
