For the first time, BMW M is expanding its high-performance line-up to include the X3 M and X4 M Competition models, and both will herald the arrival of a newly developed six-cylinder engine where 3D printing has been utilised in its production.
The X3 M Competition, a midsize SUV, and the X4 M Competition, a Sports Activity Coupe, will be powered by the high-revving unit that features track-proven cooling and oil supply systems as well as the latest M TwinPower Turbo technology update. Generating 510hp, the 3.0-litre in-line petrol engine has a peak torque of 600Nm while a dual-branch exhaust system helps to deliver an intoxicating soundtrack.
The exterior on both models makes no secret of their performance-focused character. The large intakes at the front end ensure an effective supply of cooling air for the engine, transmission and brakes while the signature M design elements at the front, sides and rear serve to optimise aerodynamics and have been carefully matched to the power unit’s performance characteristics and the chassis’ tuning.
The BMW X3 M Competition is priced from £77,070 OTR and the X4 M Competition priced at £79,990 OTR.
