BMW X3 M F97 / BMW X4 M F98: Power-Teaser for the DTM

The new mid-size SUV from Garching cast their shadows ahead: In the framework of the DTM BMW kick X3 M and BMW X4 M for the first time officially, and to lead the parade in front of the Saturday race at the Nürburgring. The two Power-SUV with a reduced camo on the move and may be considered as the first official confirmation of the planned innovations of the M GmbH – formerly the M-models of the X3 G01 and X4 G02 not have been denied on that one, but never really confirmed.

As our readers were able to in the last few weeks and months to follow, the development of the BMW X3 and BMW X4 M, yet for some time. Of the two vehicles were again caught prototypes that drove at high speed on the Nürburgring Nordschleife – compared to the current exit on the Nürburgring GP-track, hardly more than a coffee ride, but for the tuning of the chassis, all-wheel-drive and control systems of other dates in the calendar are finally reserved.

Despite the camouflage, some Details of the new mid-size SUV are already well recognizable. We see the Front with large intakes air, the rims and of course the characteristic exhaust system with four tailpipes. How will the new BMW X4 M in 2019 under full load sounds, we were recently in a Erlkönig-Video listen.

Responsible for the Sound of the new inline six-cylinder engine S58, which will debut in the two SUV models. The successor to the current S55 is later, to drive other models, such as M3 and M4, and should be compared to its predecessor, not only stronger, but also more efficient and cleaner. Could help a more advanced Form of the water injection we have seen for the first time in the 500-horsepower S55 variant for the M4 GTS.

Until the official presentation without camouflage and with technical data, unfortunately, is asking a little more patience, we expect a Premiere in early next year and a market launch at the beginning of the second quarter of 2019.

Frank van Meel (Chairman of the Board of management of BMW M GmbH): “With your M typical Performance properties are set on the BMW X3 M and BMW X4 M set new standards for dynamics in its vehicle segment.”
