BMW X35is and BMW X3M





 According to the new rumor surfaced on the webs, the German carmaker is working on two performance versions of the BMW X3M and the BMW X35is. Apart from these BMW X3M and the BMW X35is rumor, the X4 will also become a reality as have been said by the same web source.


BMW X35is will be powered by 3.0-liter inline 6-cylinder engine (will probably be coupled with a 6-speed manual gearbox or the 7-speed double clutch automatic transmission) which develops 322 hp and 332 lb-ft of torque.


BMW X35is top speed will be limited to 250 km/h and the acceleration time will be around the 5 seconds mark at 0 to 100 km/h.





While BMW X3M details are a bit fuzzy at the moment. The new M engine (the one on the X5M and X6M) is probably too big and too powerful to put on a smaller BMW X3M. We may speculate that the BMW X3M will have the same 3.0-liter twin turbocharged six cylinder as the X35is.



For both BMW X3M and BMW X35is will have bigger brakes, new aerodynamics, also an improved suspension and chassis.
