BMW X3 M40i unveiled in India at ₹86.50 lakh

Object of envy!

BMW has just unleashed its latest beast, the X3 M40i, with a whopping price tag of ₹86.50 lakhs (ex-showroom, India). They've taken their regular X3 SUV and pumped it up with some serious power, sharing the same engine as the BMW M340i sedan. This limited edition machine is imported as a completely built unit (CBU), making it a rare and coveted gem.

This 3.0-liter turbo-petrol powerhouse churns out 360 horses and a whopping 500Nm of torque. With a 0-100kph time of 4.9 seconds, this bad boy comes with an M Performance in-line 6-cylinder engine, specially designed to rev like crazy and give you a serious power boost. 

The X3 M40i is not just a speed demon, it's also a tech wonderland. After all, that’s where we come in. This beast of a car will have you surrounded by not one but two massive 12.3in displays. It's like having a mini-theatre right in your car! But don't worry, all these displays come with some dependable features too. The BMW X3 M40i is loaded with advanced technology like BMW Gesture Control and Wireless Apple CarPlay or Android Auto.

Plus, the M Sport package gives you some swanky upgrades like M-specific grilles, wing mirrors and tailpipes. But it's not just about power, my friend. The BMW X3 M40i is a fashion statement too, with its all-black interior, and stylish BMW M kidney grille proudly displaying its M GmbH affiliation. It's like the car equivalent of strutting down the catwalk.

Now, let's not forget the performance. With its Adaptive M Suspension, M Sport differential, M Sport brakes, and BMW xDrive all-wheel drive, you'll feel like you're gliding in the air. Well, maybe not air, more like a cloud of pure exhilaration! It even has a differential with performance control, because who doesn't love a good differential lock setup? Safety is also a top priority, with features like six airbags, ABS with brake assist, and Dynamic Stability Control. So, even if you feel like a race car driver, you'll have peace of mind knowing that you're protected.

So, my friend, get ready to get behind the wheel dominating force. Just remember to keep your hands on the wheel and your eyes on the road—preferably while wearing sunglasses to shield yourself from the envy of onlookers.
