Sport Activity Trophy Truck? The BMW X6 Desert Racer

#BMW, #X6

Think ‘Trophy Truck’ and images of American trucks likely come to mind – Chevy Silverados, Mopar Ram Runners, and Ford F-150 SVT Raptors are all easy to picture running across the desert at high speeds. But a BMW X6? Crazy as it sounds, that idea is now a reality. All German Motorsport and Jimco recently partnered to create what is quite possibly the most unique trophy truck in existence, the AGM-JImco X6 SCORE Trophy Truck.

Technically, this custom-built trophy truck has as much in common with the X6 as the X6 does with an M3. The AGM-Jimco X6 SCORE Trophy Truck (X6 TT from henceforth) looks similar to your run-of-the-mill X6, thanks to its custom-built fiberglass shell, and both feature a V-8 engine – but that’s pretty much where the similarities end. Otherwise, the X6 TT rides on a custom chassis, uses bespoke suspension designed for the rigors of off-road racing, and sports a 725-750-hp custom-built 4.4-liter V-8.  Trophy Truck rules do specify that engine has to be based on a production block. Power is routed to the rear wheels through a four-speed sequential transmission.

According to the X6 TT’s driver Armin Schwarz, planning for the truck began back in 2009. Schwarz and his crew plan on finalizing testing as the X6 TT makes its debut at this year’s Baja 1000 in November.
