A power output figure that’s bigger than 600 HP and a top speed of 200 mph is something that you would generally associate with a sport car. Right? Wrong! For here comes a SUV that will take you just as fast while also being just as quick. The SUV in question is the BMW M6 and those who have been able to come up with the feat is Manhart Racing who have been credited to have put together appropriate specifications to make this possible.
Manhart Racing is known for their turning efforts on BMW vehicles and has recently announced a new tuning package for BMW X6M. It is a brand-new M6XR Twin Turbo package for the sports utility vehicle that upgrades the V8 engine’s specifications to an impressive 687 hp. However, the tuner had to do lot of modifications, in fact a complete overhaul of the engine electronics to achieve this. The overhaul of the engine included making significant alterations in the DME control. In addition, the tuning company had to position a catalytic conversion inside the engine, which also consisted of modifications to the converters.
However, all of these efforts has promising results for the lovers of fast zippy cars since the tuning package ensures the SUV delivers impressive results and becomes capable of being driven to 60 mph from standing still in a skimpy 4.7 seconds window. The SUV can hit a top speed of 198 mph because of its overhauled V-8 power plant.
The other prominent features of the tuning package consist of a new stainless steel exhaust system which includes four 90 MM tailpipes along with 200-cell HJS racing catalytic converters. The package also features a complete new set of 23-inch sports wheels.
The good news is not yet over for the tuning company intends to please the sports car enthusiasts even more. The company has revealed its plan to release a new version of 700 hp engine to make the SUV zoom even faster.
Coming back to the tuning package, the power output delivered by the upgraded engines of the 2010 BMW M6XR is amazingly high in comparison to the power produced by the BMW M3 E 92 back in February. Notably, in the last attempt to tune the sports car, Manhart Racing, the tuning company, was unable to churn out more than 655 hp from the modified engine.
