Our database of the German patent office discovered the application for registration of trade designations X8 M. Documents filed by BMW on March 23 of this year. It is assumed that this index hides a luxurious version of the X7 with four seats, more expensive trim and “byturbulence” 4.4 issuing more than 600 horsepower.
Externally, the “IKS-eighth” many will repeat standing on the step below the BMW X7. Moreover, insiders claim that the model will not be kupeobrazny version of “seven” by analogy with the X5/X6, but still get a slightly modified profile. The main differences between a Statute of a more luxurious trim, enhanced equipment and separate chairs on the second row. But what exactly expected, so it’s V12 engine.
Twelve-cylinder engine and embarked on the reduction of emissions of CO2 do not fit together, so the company decided to phase out unit. Although the M760i sedan with a V12 6.6 still sold in several markets, after the release of the new model generation will go from there. In this case, to X8/X8 M there will be only one suitable motor — twin-turbo V8 4.4 M50i X7 and X5 M. the first “eight” provides 530 forces, and the second – 600 or 625 forces. However, the margin of the engine are great, because as demonstrated by Atelier Manhart, it is possible to swing to the forces 700 and 900 Nm of torque.
