While there has been no official word from BMW, spies have been catching shots of what seems to be a BMW X5 ‘M’ version. The car was caught once in Death Valley undergoing hot weather testing and once in Munich outside of BMW headquarters.
Speculators say that the BMW X5 M will most likely be powered by the 6.0 liter V12 engine found in the 760i that produces 438 horsepower. From the images you can see revised front fascia with larger intakes to provide cooling air to the engine bay and brakes. In the back two sets of twin exhaust tips hint more power.
