BMW has quietly released the first pictures of the facelifted X6 M.

Looking virtually identical to the outgoing model, the updated crossover has a revised grille and new LED-infused headlights.

Interior changes are also minor, but apparently include new leather upholstery choices.

Power comes from a twin-turbo 4.4-liter V8 engine with 555 PS (408 kW / 547 hp) and 680 Nm (502 lb-ft) of torque. It is connected to a six-speed M Sport automatic transmission which sends power to an all-wheel drive system. This enables the crossover to accelerate from 0-100 km/h in 4.7 seconds, before hitting a limited top speed of 250 km/h (155 mph).
