I get shivers down my spine whenever I get to hear about the astonishing BMW X6 getting an extreme makeover from tuners worldwide. This is also what happened a couple of days ago when I bumped into a custom-built X6 signed by Fostla from Germany.
The aftermarket specialists from Fostla have created a unique BMW X6, the gorgeous SUV receiving new styling bits and a power upgrade under the hood.
Fostla is a dedicated BMW tuner, with hundreds of programs created on all sorts of models. However, it does seem to favour the X6, especially because of its rugged looks and sheer performance.
Each project involving an X6 is unique, and this one seen in the media gallery below is a real show-off, particularly since it already comes with some styling enhancements brought by Hamann, another German leading tuner in BMW modifications.
The technicians from Fostla have also added a couple of their own elements, without interfering with the rest of the aftermarket parts.
They believed that their new elements would make this X6 even more aggressive and spectacular, adding a black chrome, vinyl body wrap, bespoke rear diffuser, black brushed rood, side mirror casings and door handles.
The BMW X6 by Fostla also comes with massive alloy wheels, signed by Hamann. They refer to Hamann`s Anniversary Evo II and are wrapped in 295/30 tires up front and 335/25 at the rear. The wheels increase the SUV`s aggressive looks, while the spacer discs and the lowering springs provide better stance and grip.
In the stock form, the BMW X6 SUV in M50D variant comes with a 3.0-liter bi-turbo six-cylinder diesel engine, churning out no less than 376 horsepower and 740 Nm of torque. This means a sprint from 0 to 100 km/h in just 5.2 seconds.
However, with the tuner`s new PP-Performance Stage 1 power kit, the model in questing is now coming with better power and torque – 437 horsepower and 845 Nm of torque.
For the power stage alone, Fostla is asking no less than $19,000, which is the equivalent of the new Volkswagen Golf in home country Germany.
