The briefest of brief spins in the sexy 2017 BMW X4 M40i!
How does this all-new turbo six feel versus the previous X4 xDrive35i M Sport?
Far more focused, to be honest. The new motor series is not just up 20HP/30-pound-feet of torque. It also gains a biting new exhaust bark in all forms. That back-bellow and M-style popping on the overrun is cranked to the max in the X4 M40i. And we adore it.
The exterior is also quite sexy with its dark-tinted badges, chrome-free appearance and overall sinister-ness.
The grey mirror caps and blocky alloys reinforce this impression of F-U coolness for the 5.0-second crossover coupe.
Enjoy a 25-photo flyaround of this — the rarest of the rare and special X4s.
Granted, with a $70k sticker… it should be pretty darn snazzy. Luckily, it really is.
