Porsche Panamera Exclusive Series

The limited edition is based on the Panamera Turbo S Executive, the 419 kW (570 hp) top version of the grand tourer with a long wheelbase and very generously proportioned rear passenger space. The world premiere takes place at the 2014 Los Angeles Auto Show.

Being provided by Porsche for the first time on the Panamera Exclusive Series is two-colour, graduated paintwork: below the door handles a contrast is created with the timeless deep black metallic paint by a chestnut brown metallic colour that runs in the background along the lines of the car to the rear. Every one of the 100 vehicles is being painted by hand in order to ensure a harmonious blend of colour. The front air inlet grilles and the 20-inch wheels in the Sport Classic design are, for instance, also deep black metallic.

Uusi 2015 BMW X5 M ja BMW X6 M

BMW julkisti tänään X5 M ja X6 M SAV:t. BMW M GmbH aloitti näiden urheilullisten katumaastureiden valmistuksen vuonna 2009. Autojen 4.4-litraiset twinturbo V8-moottorit tuottavat 567 hevosvoimaa ja 750 Nm vääntöä, joka kiidättää maasturit 0-100 km/h vain 4.2 sekunnissa, huippunopeuden ollessa rajoitettu 250 km/h. Vaihteisto on M Steptronic Drivelogic -automaattivaihteisto, joka on ominaisuuksiltaan yritetty saada kaksoiskytkinvaihteistoa vastaavaksi. Älykkään nelivedon sähköisesti ohjattu monilevykytkin voi jakaa voimaa tarpeen mukaan aina 100%:iin asti etu -tai taka-akselille. Vakiovanteet ovat 21-tuumaiset ja renkaat Michelin Pilot Super Sport UHP  (edessä: 285/35 R21 Y, takana: 325/30 R21 Y). 2015 BMW X5 M maksaa USA:ssa $99,650 ja 2015 BMW X6 M $103,050, autot saapuvat autokauppoihin keväällä 2015. Herbert Bayerl M GmbH:sta kertoi Sport Auto lehdelle, että X6M autolta voi odottaa kirrosaikaa Nürburgringillä, joka on hyvin lähelle BMW E92 M3:sta (Sport Auto 12/2007: 8:05 min)!

The new 2015 BMW X5 M and new 2015 BMW X6 M

The new BMW X5 M and new BMW X6 M see BMW M GmbH setting the pace once again in the high-performance Sports Activity Vehicle (SAV) and Sports Activity Coupe (SAC) segment. When the previous generation of the two vehicles arrived in 2009, it was the first time the high-performance character distilled by BMW M GmbH had been transplanted into an all-wheel-drive BMW X model. The result was class-leading dynamics. The new BMW X5 M and BMW X6 M pull no punches in writing the next chapter in this success story with another significant step forward in dynamic excellence, distinct M design and outstanding efficiency. The 2015 BMW X5 M will be offered at a Manufacturer’s Suggested Retail Price of $99,650 and the 2015 BMW X6 M will start at $103,050, including $950 Destination and Handling, both models will arrive in US showrooms in the Spring of 2015.

Herbert Bayerl of the M GmbH has told Sport Auto Magazine to expect a Nürburgring lap time similar to the BMW E92 M3 (Sport Auto 12/2007 time: 8:05 min) for the X6M.

The new BMW X5 M and new BMW X6 M combine the characteristic features of the successful BMW X family – exclusivity, robustness, agility and everyday usability – with the commitment to high performance that defines an M vehicle. The latter is resoundingly highlighted by the vehicles’ impressive performance figures. Both models complete the sprint from 0 to 60 mph in 4.0 seconds in conjunction with the new eight-speed M Steptronic transmission.

Innovative engine technology.
The new M TwinPower Turbo V8 for the BMW X5 M and BMW X6 M is the most powerful engine ever developed by BMW for an all-wheel-drive vehicle. Boasting innovative M TwinPower Turbo technology with a pair of TwinScroll turbochargers, cross-bank exhaust manifolds, VALVETRONIC and High Precision Direct Injection, the 4.4-liter V8 produces maximum output of 567 hp between 6,000 and 6,500 rpm. That represents a 3 percent increase over the predecessor models. The step up is even clearer when it comes to the power development of the new engine. Peak torque has been boosted by 53 lb-ft which equates to a rise of 10 percent. Its 553 lb-ft can be enjoyed across a broad rev range between 2,200 and 5,000 rpm.

At the same time, fuel consumption of the new BMW X5 M and BMW X6 M in the European cycle (official EPA values will be available closer to the start of sales) has been cut by 20 percent, CO2 emissions are likewise down by more than 20 percent, to 258 g/km. The two models accelerate from 0 to 60 mph in 4.0 seconds through the standard eight-speed M Steptronic transmission with Drivelogic. Top speed is limited to 250 km/h (155 mph).

Powerful looks and exclusive equipment.
With their striking use of forms, the looks of the new BMW X5 M and BMW X6 M foretell their performance potential. With their exteriors painted fully in body color, both models cut a low-slung figure on the road, while mixed tires showcase their sporty track width. Additional exterior design modifications, moreover, elevate the M models even further than before from the standard BMW X5 and BMW X6. Large air intakes at the front end, side gills with a model badge and Air Breathers, signature M exterior mirrors in twin-stalk style, a typically M four-tailpipe exhaust system and a rear spoiler (for the BMW X6 M) give them a standalone look M fans will immediately recognize. Setting the seal on this exclusive range of features are standard M-specific, forged 21-inch M light-alloy wheels.

The high-quality interior impresses with its well-thought-through combination of sporty features, exclusive materials and flawless workmanship. The M instrument cluster, M leather steering wheel with aluminum gearshift paddles and M gearshift lever – which works in the same way as the familiar M Double Clutch Transmission gearshift lever – are complemented by electrically operated M multi-function seats for the driver and front passenger, an M driver’s footrest and the optional Head-Up Display which, in addition to the standard information, also includes an M-specific display with gear indicator, rev band and shift lights.

New BMW X5 M and BMW X6 M customers also have the choice between various options exclusive to the M models, such as Merino full-leather trim. And there’s also a choice of two new and exclusive M paint finishes – Long Beach Blue Metallic and Donington Grey Metallic.
