The Swiss aftermarket specialists at Sportec have recently pulled the wraps off their latest creation, an upgrade program for the 2013 BMW X6.
According to the tuning company, the BMW X6 has received an ECU remap, an updated air intake and some other minor tweaks for the inline six-cylinder 3.0 liter diesel engine. Thanks to these upgrades, the unit can now produce a total output of 370 HP (276 kW) and 749 Nm of torque (553 lb-ft), from the standard 300 HP (223 kW) and 406 Nm of torque (300 lb-ft).
Sportec says that the German SUV can now accelerate from 0 to 100 km/h (62 mph) in just 5.4 seconds, becoming 1.1 seconds faster than the regular version of the diesel X6. Top speed has also increased in the model from 209 km/h (130 mph) to 264 km/h (164 mph). The BMW X6 in question has also received a sports exhaust system with carbon fiber tailpipes and a fresh set of 20-inch OZ lightweight alloy wheels, which have managed to lower the model’s curb weight by 40 kg (88 lbs). No pricing details have been announced yet.
