High performance vehicles are seldom rational, but some are more irrational than others. And if you ask us, they don’t get more irrational than the BMW X6M. With all the chubbiness and high center-of-gravity of an SUV with none of the cargo space, the X6M is a 555 horsepower answer to a question exactly zero people asked.
Yet despite that (or maybe because of it), we kinda sorta dig it. And apparently, so does German vinyl wrap company Cam Shaft, for it has assembled the matte gray monster you see here.
Aside from the vinyl wrap (which is a given, considering the business Cam Shaft is in), the exterior also gets a handful of carbon fiber aero parts from Vorsteiner, including a front lip extension, hood vent slats, rear diffuser and rear spoiler. A KW coilover kit serves up a reduction in ride height, while the stock 20” wheels are refinished in graphite gray with faux carbon fiber wrap on the spokes and rim. No drastic deviations from stock, but when you have a vehicle whose shape is so distinctive to begin with, that’s no cause for concern.
And if you’re of the opinion that 555 horsepower is inadequate, there’s no need to worry about that either. Thanks to a set of custom headers, a sport exhaust system, high-flow cats and a remapped ECU, the 4.4L twin-turbo V8 now makes 710 horsepower and 738 lb.-ft of torque. Alas, Cam Shaft hasn’t said what that extra muscle does for the acceleration or top speed figures.
The company also hasn’t said how much money it would take to duplicate this brutal Bimmer, other than to say the wrap job will set you back roughly $3,300. Hey, it’s better than leaving us completely in the dark…
