BMW X6 M Gets A Heavy Blue Dose Of Customization From Vilner

These past few months, Vilner has gotten us used to all sorts of hot projects, from the Datsun 280Z to the BMW M3 E30.

The latest one, however, is a bit more restrained and shows that the Bulgarian tuner doesn’t always have to go crazy on those interior makeovers.

The vehicle chosen to receive the Vilner treatment is a BMW X6 M. The powerful SAV has a dual-tone cockpit and features several blue elements that have replaced the original black. The steering wheel, seats, center console and other parts are now blue, as are the seatbelts, while carbon fiber trim adds a nice touch.

The X6 M has remained bone stock on the outside. Furthermore, since Vilner isn’t particularly known for extracting a massive amount of power from engines, the 4.4-liter twin-turbo V8 hasn’t been tampered with. This means that it still pushes out 575 PS (567 hp / 423 kW) and 750 Nm (553 lb-ft) of torque, which translates into a 0-100 km/h (0-62 mph) acceleration of 4.2 seconds and a 250 km/h (155 mph) electronically limited top speed.

Right now, BMW is ready to roll out an all-new X6 M. It’s been spied on numerous occasions and we’ve seen itwithout camo in the Competition spec, alongside its X5 M sibling. Like the latter, the M Division-tuned X6 should feature the 4.4-liter twin-turbo V8 engine that’s also powering the F90 M5. The regular model should get 600 PS (592 hp / 442 kW), whereas the Competition is thought to arrive with 625 PS (616 hp / 460 kW).
