In just under 30 days we will get our first chance to see what performance modifications BMWs M engineers have applied to the X5 and X6 SUVs and finally determine whether these two behemoths are worthy of wearing the storied M badge.

The microsite, contains plenty of information about the upcoming vehicles, including images of actual prototypes and a couple of videos from behind the wheel. The X5 M and X6 M models are expected to feature an uprated version of BMWs twin-turbocharged 4.4L V8 engine. According to previous reports, output could be as high as 507hp (373kW) and 516lb-ft (700Nm) of torque enough for 0-60mph times of less than five seconds and more than enough to reach the companys usual 155mph electronically governed top speed.

UPDATE: Jalopnik noticed that the source code of the minisite revealed a tag cloud with such interesting tags as "550 bhp", "Twin Scroll Twin Turbo", "V8" and, our favorite, "gills".

Gas is far from any concern for someone who can put 100K down on a SUV. :)

Please drive a Prius. I'll need your gas. :D
