724hp BMW X6 M by Alsa Engineering

ALSA Automotive Engineering upgraded the X6's power from 555 PS (408 kW / 547 bhp) up to 724 PS. The car is now able to sprint up to 100 km/h in 3.8 seconds and to 200 in 14.6 seconds, while reaching a top speed of 325 km/h.
The tuning package includes upgraded turbo compressor wheels, allowing boost pressure to increase to 1.8 bar, and it works for X5 M too.

ALSA Automotive Engineering, a state of the art tuning facility located in Abu Dhabi, UAE has created what it believes to be is the worlds first tuned X6 M with modified turbo's (works for X5 M). This modification consists of modifying the stock turbo's compressor wheels allowing boost pressure to increase to 1.8 bar, installing high flow catalytic converters or straight pipes and modifying the ECU.

ALSA Automotive Engineering has been able to boost the cars power from 555 PS (408 kW / 547 bhp) up to 700+PS. During initial testing, ALSA found out that the car has a tremendous amount of drive train loss, which they calculated to be more than 30%. Power has increased from stock 555 PS to 724 PS. ALSA arrive at this number by adding the 30% drive train loss to the 557 whp and torque is increased to 945 Nm (697 ft. lb.). That is an increase of 169 horsepower to the wheels and next is stage II with modified headers! Looking at the pictures provided, the upgraded compressor wheels are on the inducer and exducer, each side around 2mm larger in diameter then stock wheels, along with a completely different blade design. In the picture from the side, you can see how different the blade angles are. All our improvements on the upgraded turbochargers will develop around 35% more airflow than the originals and are good for up to 2 bar of boost.

Performance wise, the car has become a rocket, launching from 0-100 km/h in around 3.8 seconds, 0-200 in 14.6 seconds and achieving a top speed in excess of 325 km/h rivaling sports cars such as Lamborghini's and Ferrari's. Pricing starts at 68,000 Dhs or 18,840 dollars installed at ALSA's facility for stage 1.
