We have the first official images of the BMW X4 M40i to share thanks to a massive leak.


Bimmertoday has managed to obtain images depicting the most powerful X4 in the range – the M40i, expected to debut in a couple of weeks. You have to be a real auto guru to spot the differences between the model and any X4 with M Sport package. The changes are limited to new trim accents on the front bumper and new mirror caps, as well as a bespoke set of 19-inch alloys. At the back we see twin exhaust pipes.


Inside the cabin there's an exclusive sports steering wheel and door sills with X4 M40i lettering.


As we reported yesterday, the sporty SUV is powered by a 3.0-liter 6-cylinder turbo petrol unit with 360 PS (265 kW). 0-100 km/h (0-62 mph) acceleration takes 4.9 seconds, which is 0.6 seconds faster than the X4 35i. Top speed is the same electronically limited 250 km/h (155 mph).
