The German tuners at Dähler Design & Technik GmbH are introducing their power package specifically designed for the latest BMW X5 M and X6 M.
It's highly unlikely you will hear someone saying the X5 M and X6 M duo lacks in the power department, but that hasn't stopped Dähler from upgrading the already strong twin-turbo V8 4.4-liter engine. As standard, the motor churns a massive 575 PS (423 kW) and 750 Nm (553 lb-ft) of torque and with the tuner's stage 1 kit the output jumps to 664 PS (488 kW) and 820 Nm (605 lb-ft). Once the power bump is applied, the 0-62 mph (0-100 km/h) sprint time drops from 4.2 seconds to 3.9 seconds while top speed is increased from an electronically-limited 155 mph (250 km/h) to 190 mph (305 km/h), also capped.
For those with a bigger thirst for power, Dähler has a stage 2 program that increases output to 680 PS (500 kW) and an enormous 860 Nm (635 lb-ft). In this case, the sprint takes as little as 3.8 seconds before the high-performance SAVs reach the same electronically-governed 190 mph (305 km/h).
Aside from packing more punch, the X5 & X6 M duo can also be fitted with a variety of 22- and 23-inch alloy wheels, a stainless steel exhaust system, high performance catalysts, adjustable chassis and several customizations for the interior cabin. They can also improve the gas pedal response and modify the rpm limiter for added sportiness.
