M Powered X6? 500+ hp

There's some spy photos of the possibly new x6 called the 2008 x6 50i. Rumors have been surfacing that it could be the same v8, but with a more powerful turbo that could easily gain 50+ hp from the current one (4.4 L v8), which could add up to at least 500 hp!

I don't care what people say about the styling, I think it looks crazy and it looks so mean and aggressive that I love it.

There's a funny part in that video where the driver gets mad at the camera guy.

If it's called an X6 50i, then it's not a 4.0l and therefore not the S65

You have your V8's mixed up.

The current "_50i" V8 in production is the N62B48 engine, which is a 4.8L V8. The 50i models to come, starting with the new X6 xDrive50i and then moving to the 750, 650 and 550, will be a twin turbo 4.4L V8. BMW wanted to reduce displacement and go back to an engine size that they already had used. The new X6 xDrive50i will have 400hp/5500rpm and 450lb-ft/1750-4500rpm from the 4.4TT V8, per BMW. The vehicle is rated at 5.2seconds 0-60. You can check it out at BMWUSA.com.
