Following up on this same encounter, these latest photos show the same X6 prototype being trailed off to the engineers garage for repair. But more importantly we can see here the first shot of the front interior and dashboard.
4x4 Coupe front interior shot
In 2008 BMW will launch its much discussed all-new four-door all-wheel-drive Coupe currently dubbed, X6. The X6 is said to offer the mechanics and four-wheel-drive system from BMW’s X5 SUV while its body styling is of a more elegant coupe design.
Just a few days ago we revealed shots of the X6's sloping rear end which was caught during extreme hot weather testing in Death Valley, which consequently, disabled the vehicle. Following up on this same encounter, these latest photos show the same X6 prototype being trailed off to the engineers garage for repair. But more importantly we can see here the first shot of the front interior and dashboard.
The prototype appears to have less ground clearance than the X5 and is slightly longer. As seen in the previous story linked above, the boxy rear end disguise is hiding a sloping roof line. The X6 will have sportier handling and greater driving dynamics than the X5 while the latter can seat up to seven passengers, the X6 is going to be a strict four seater.
BMW is expected to use the most powerful engines from the X3 and X5 series including the new 3.0 liter diesel bi-turbo delivering 286 HP and the 367 HP 4.8 liter V8 petrol engine. Some time later a turbo V8 engine delivering 420 HP will provide the X6 with even more performance, thus another serious rival against Porsche will be on the road from next year forward.
