The most powerful and most expensive BMW crossover has been presented. The flagship crossover of the German brand became the first independent model from the BMW Motorsport division since the M1 supercar in 1978. Details of the car were revealed on the official website of the brand.
The BMW XM crossover will go into production at the US plant in November. Prices start at $159,000 for the initial version and $185,000 for the top-charged Label Red variant. This is the most expensive BMW crossover, and its competitors will be Aston Martin DBX and Lamborghini Urus.
The exterior is made in a new corporate style, which debuted on the BMW 7 Series. The design is dominated by chopped surfaces, and the wheel arches are significantly expanded. The branded BMW grille received diode illumination, and thin «two-story» headlights are equipped with laser optics.
There is a choice of wheels with a diameter of 22 or 23 inches. At the rear, thin lights and original exhaust pipes attract attention.
XM is the most powerful BMW crossover, and it will be offered only in hybrid version. Already in the basic version, the 4.4-liter V8 twin-turbo and electric motor develop 653 hp and 800 Nm.
