BMW X3M spied at the Nürburgring

Performance SUVs are now very much a thing, so it was only a matter of time before BMW pumped some additional power into its X3.

While nothing has been confirmed yet, the first video footage of what appears to be an X3M has been released on YouTube.

From the noise, we guess BMW probably went with the current M3 engine, good for around 330kW.

It will likely use an eight-speed automatic, which will send power to an updated version of BMW’s all-wheel drive system.
