Get the full scoop on the Abu Dhabi-based Alsa Automotive Engineering's package for the X6 M. The story, with video and pics, inside.
Alsa Automotive Engineering, based in Abu Dhabi, have tuned the BMW X6 M to an impressive 724 PS (533 kW / 714 bhp). The company's CEO, Mohammed Al Sayegh, says the over-700 horsepower figure was obtained with no modification to the engine's displacement, unlike the 715 PS (526 kW /705 bhp) X6 M tuned by German outfit Nowack Motors.
"[Nowack Motors] have produced that by making the car a 4.8 liter instead of keeping it at its 4.4 liter engine capacity," Al Sayegh told WCF.
The tuning package, which includes upgraded turbo compressor wheels, is also available for the X5 M. The new turbo components increase pressure up to 1.8 bar, but engineers did not stop there. Modifications were also made to the engine control unit, along with the installation of high-flow catalytic converters and straight pipes.
The result is an increase in horsepower of over 32 percent. Torque is also upgraded to a maximum of 945 Nm (697 ft-lb). The SUV is now capable of sprinting from 0-100 km/h in 3.8 seconds, and on to 200 km/h in 14.6 seconds total. Alsa Automotive claims a 325 km/h (202 mph) top speed.
"We are the first and only company to have successfully modified the turbo's so that the car can run higher boost on stock engine," Al Sayegh said.
Pricing on the Alsa Automotive Engineering BMW X6 M package begins at 68,000 Arab Emirates Dirham (€15,086, $18,514).
