A high performance SUV

 BMW recently revealed the new X6 model, a large luxury SUV. Shortly afterwards, the German car manufacturer presented the “Motorsport” model of the 4x4, the propeller brand’s most powerful and fastest version. With a 4.4 litre twin-turbo V8 engine producing 575 horsepower and a lighter chassis, the new X6 M claims the title of being the fastest SUV in the world up against the Porsche Cayenne Turbo S and the Mercedes M63 AMG. It can also lap the Nordschleife as fast as a M3 V8 sports car.

A specific Pilot Super Sport

Given its dynamic capabilities, it is clearly important that this vehicle is shod with tyres that match its performance. For this, the Michelin team has equipped the new SUV with a specific version of the Pilot Super Sport fitted as original equipment on the X6 M. A generous tyre size, fitted on 21-inch rims with 285/35 ZR21 105Y at the front and 325/30 ZR21 108Y at the rear.
