The BMW X6 xDrive50d was spied

A performance diesel version of the BMW X6 was spied while it was taking some tests in Germany, on the Nurburgring race track.
The model we are talking about is the BMW X6 xDrive50d and it could be part of the M division. At the beginning of the week we found out that the German carmaker is developing an M version for the 5 Series diesel range. The name of the model is 550dxM. So far we can only assume that the X6 xDrive50d will feature the same 550d engine like the 550dxM with an all-wheel-drive system.
Also the front bumper looks exactly like the one of an X6M. The X6 xDrive50d will have a 3.0-liter triple-turbocharged engine that is able to deliver somewhere between 500 horsepower and 550 horsepower and 700 Nm of torque.
We will have to wait for more details.
