Now that MCCHIP has had its way with it, however, the X6, at least in 'White Shark' guise, is much closer to being described as a large sport sedan.

Boosting the diesel's power to 340hp (254kW) and 487lb-ft (660Nm) of torque, the White Shark is 46hp (34kW) and 59lb-ft (80Nm) stronger than the standard BMW X6 xDrive35d. The re-flashing also raises the max speed from the factory-limited 148mph (238km/h) to a slightly more brisk 156mph (251km/h).
