BMW’s X3 SAV (sports activity vehicle) and X4 SAC (sports activity coupe) now have their very own M Competition Package available as an option! As part of the package, both cars receive significant cosmetic and performance upgrades making them seriously quick M cars.
They both feature an extremely powerful version of BMW’s iconic straight six turbocharged engine. With 510bhp on tap, these cars really will need that X-drive system to put all of their 650Nm worth of torque down to the road. The raw power available means that both cars will do the 0-100 sprint in a blistering time of 3.8 seconds! They will keep going all the way to a very German limited top speed of 155mph (250kph).
The cars make use of a sophisticated cooling system which includes three radiators so they can really perform on track. Additionally, the engine and transmission also have separate oil coolers! BMW’s roaring M-Sport exhaust comes as standard and you can guarantee that the 8-speed transmission will make some loud pops on the shifts. Naturally, you will need some significant stopping power to bring these quick cars to a halt and BMW have you covered with M-compound brakes that come as standard.
Lastly, the Competition cars come with two new paint options. M-Carbon Black metallic & M-Brooklyn Grey are the two in question but you also get further choices if you live in Germany. M-Marina Bay Blue metallic and M-Sao Paulo Yellow which are the two colours featured in these photos are only available to German buyers who also get the option of having individual paint finishes. Lucky them!
