Hamann Bringing 462 PS BMW X6 M50D To Geneva

| |

German tuner Hamann has a new version of the diesel-powered X6 scheduled to premiere tomorrow.

Having coaxed extra performance out of several F16 BMW X6 engines, such as the diesel units of the xDrive40d and xDrive30d as well as the petrol xDrive50i and xDrive35i, it's no surprise that the much more powerful M50d is vastly improved.

Specifically, Haman bumps up its output from the stock car's 381 PS and 740 Nm (545 lb-ft) all the way to 462 PS, to go with 890 Nm (656 lb-ft) of torque. Though no official sprint times were released, the numbers suggest that the 2.2 tone sports activity vehicle will easily hit 100 km/h (62 mph) in the 4.5 seconds range, since it already needs only 5.2 seconds in factory form.

Hamann also made sure this car came with plenty of custom aesthetic bits, such as an ultra lightweight carbon-fiber bonnet, wide-body kit, app-controlled four-pipe Active Sound sports exhaust system, 23" monoblock wheels, custom front & rear bumpers, custom emblems, lowering suspension kit and a fixed rear wing.

Inside, the car features aluminum pedals, Alcantara-covered steering wheel, Alcantara trunk mat, and an LED door entry illumination projecting the Hamann logo.

The tuned X6 will be on display on Hamman's stand alongside the custom BMW X4 and the Porsche Macan.
