We have some interesting news from the Swiss tuning brand Sportec. They have reportedly developed a brand new upgrade program for the 2013 BMW X6. The specialists behind the brand have reportedly focused on the 3.0-liter diesel motorization of the Bimmer, which delivers a standard 300 HP (223 kW) and 406 Nm (300 lb-ft) of torque.

The changes they’ve done include ECU remapping and air intake improvements, therefore raising the maximum output of the vehicle up to 370 HP (276 kW) and 749 Nm (553 lb-ft) of torque. The results speak for themselves – acceleration from naught to 62 mph (100 km/h) happens in 5.4 seconds, 1.1 seconds faster than the stock X6 3.0 diesel, while reaching a top speed of 164 mph (264 km/h), way faster than the standard 130 mph (209 km/h).

Part of the aforementioned figures are owed to the revised ratios of the 8-speed Steptronic automatic transmission. In addition, the folk at Sportec have also fitted the car with a brand new set of 20-inch OZ lightweight alloy wheels, lowering the overall weight by 40 kg (88 lbs). The set of upgrades is finished by a custom sports exhaust system with carbon fiber muffler tips.
