While the regular versions of the next generation BMW X3 continue to be spied in motion, the Germans are also working on the more potent member of the family, which will add the M designation.
Coming hot on the heels of a larger BMW X5 M, the smaller SUV seems to have been taken to the Nurburgring Nordschleife for some tire shredding action, spilling its additional horsepower on a famous track and growling like there’s no tomorrow.
The powerful inline-six engine is said to sit under the hood, probably taken from the M3 and M4, providing somewhere between 400 and 500 horsepower.
The X3 M will also benefit from the tuned chassis with sports suspension, tweaked steering and the larger brakes in order to improve its cornering abilities.
In order to match its power with its looks, the automaker will add the more aggressive body, with redesigned bumpers, the slightly modded grille, beefier side skirts and the rear diffuser to incorporate the quad tailpipes, while inside, the expect sportier seats, M badging and some trim updates.
As for its reveal date, nothing is known yet and it should come after the regular X3 hits the market in the second half of next year.
