BMW Announces M Performance Automobiles

BMW will be expanding their M performance division by creating a new range of vehicles sold under the BMW M Performance Automobiles name. Set to be unveiled at the upcoming Geneva Motor Show, the BMW M Performance Automobiles will fill the gap between standard BMW cars and their high-performance M models.

All of the variants will be developed by BMW M engineers and BMW has plans to create variants for "a wide variety of model series, as well as both petrol and diesel-engined variants," according to Friedrich Nitschke, BMW's M chief. In addition, Nitschke emphasized that all-wheel drive will be prominent in the M Performance Automobiles.

It's believed that the first two models to come from BMW M Performance Automobiles will be high-performance diesels, presumably equipped with the new tri-turbo, inline-six powerplant that has 376-hp and 546 lb-ft of torque. Rumors peg the M5 550d xDrive and the X6 M50d xDrive to be the badges those vehicles will sport.
