As if we couldn’t get anymore confused about BMW‘s X6 and its purpose in life, ArmorTech out of Russia has decided to offer a coupe conversion. This whole sport activity vehicle (SAV) thing keeps getting a new take and now ArmorTech has probably done what we never thought would happen…or probably deep down hoped would never happen.

But now it’s here so we should take some time to see what it’s all about. ArmorTech takes a standard BMW X6, pushes the B-Pillar back, essentially adding 9.8-inches to the front doors. In addition they move the rear window forward by 7.9-inches. Naturally the conversion requires new front seats that tilt and slide forward to allow your passengers access to the rear.

We’re still not sure why anyone would want this, other than to have a sporty, yet not-so-full-of-utility, sport utility vehicle. (Sorry, sport activity vehicle). And for those not happy with just the coupe conversion, ArmorTech claims they can order engine upgrades, as well as a  sports suspension, exhaust, wheels, brakes, body kit, interior upgrades… and, well, just about anything that’s available in the aftermarket.

So what’s next? Will ArmorTech take an X6 M and convert that into a coupe?
