The BMW X6 in standard form is already an excessive vehicle, and the range topping BMW X6 M is to the Greenpeace what hardcore criminals are to us. So what makes this monsterous beast, based on the X6 M, tuned by Hamann and named the Tycoon Evo M? Evil, and here’s why…
As a hate figure, the Tycoon looks the part, with front and the rear wing extensions (expands width by 60 mm) adding to the already massive presence of the X6. Side skirts, a front apron with LED daytime running lights and enlarged air inlets in the front and the carbon bonnet further diffrentiate it from the original (the latter also improves air flow). At the rear, Hamann’s unique bumper accomodates a sports exhaust system with central double pipes. Topping off the big brute looks are 23-inch “unique forged anodized” wheels. Centre of gravity is lowered by 40 mm.
Hamann says that the most significant performance enhancing component is the stainless steel high performance exhaust system with metal catalysers. A remapped ECU and the upliftment of the speed limiter are the other changes. As a result, the Tycoon produces 670 bhp and 780 Nm of torque, a big jump of 115 bhp and 100 Nm from the standard X6 M. 0-100 km/h is done in only 4.2 seconds and maximum speed is 300 km/h.
This monster will be in Geneva, but for now view the gallery after the jump.
