The BMW Concept XM celebrates the M divisions’ 50th anniversary in 2022, and it will head into production next year at the end of next year.
No doubt it will have the M1 supercar rolling around in its grave, and have happy to be there too.
Everyone hates it, the grille needs two ZIP codes, the side is a mess (especially the fake window trim), and the rear is a disaster. BUT it does have two BMW roundels on the rear window, just like the M1, so you know it’s a true M, right?
The interior is better because even though the seats are weird, the dashboard is actually ok.
The Concept XM (or likely whatever the production car is called) will be the most powerful M car yet. It has a 4.4L twin-turbo V8 plug-in hybrid with a total of 550kW (750hp) and 1000Nm (737 lb-ft).
The XM will be built in Spartanburg, SC, from the end of 2022.
