The first ever “Sports Activity Coupe”, the X6 is quite the interesting vehicle from BMW. It’s been a controversial crossover since its release, especially with the addition of the M-moniker to the car. The X6 M features more aggressive styling than the standard-issue model while being powered with BMW’s twin-turbocharged 4.4L V8. With 555-hp and 501 ft-lbs of torque, the X6 M is a perfect competitor to Porsche’s Cayenne Turbo and Turbo S at a more affordable MSRP of $89,000. So it’s not surprise that the aftermarket has jumped on this hot new crossover with the carbon-fiber experts at Vorsteiner leading the way.

In recent years, Vorsteiner has made a huge name for itself with fantastic tuning packages for multiple BMW, Porsche, Mercedes-Benz and Bentley models. From performance to wheels to aesthetics, Vorsteiner’s trademark has been a nice blend of carbon fiber to its mild aggressiveness. The BMW X6 M aerodynamic package from Vorsteiner comes complete with a front spoiler, vented hood, roof and deck lid spoilers and a rear diffuser. Vorsteiner claims the vented hood is 40-percent lighter than factory and adds some big vents for cooling. Vorsteiner is also pushing its 23-inch V-102 wheels on their demo car. The VRS X6 M aero kit will be available in the summer of 2010.
