The BMW X6 Sports Activity Coupe will debut at the 2008 Detroit Auto Show in January. In Germany the first X6 SAVs will ship in May.

We first reported about the BMW X6 in 2005 and I have been excited about it ever since. At the IAA 2007 BMW unveiled the BMW X6 Concept. Now in a couple of weeks the production version of the BMW X6 will debut at the Detroit Motor Show.The world's first Sports Activity Coupe, the BMW X6 will be available in two engine variants in the United States: the xDrive50i (4.4 V8 engine, 400 hp, 450lb.-ft torque) and the xDrive35i (3.0 inline six-cylinder engine, 300 hp, 300lb.-ft torque), both with Twin Turbo and direct injection.

The BMW X6 comes standard with BMW's intelligent xDrive all-wheel-drive technology with electronic control for variable distribution of drive power between the front and rear axles, consistently adjusted to driving conditions at all times and in all situations.

Sales of the BMW X6 will start in Germany at the end of May.
The base price in Germany for the BMW X6 xDrive 30d with 235hp is 55.800 Euro ($USD price will be different and not follow currency conversion). The top X6 xDrive50i with the new V8 engine and 407hp has a base price of 73.800 Euro.

This new BMW is the first really hot BMW in a long time and it will be tough competition for the Porsche Cayenne.

The German BMW site already published lots of information, videos, photos of the X6.
