The BMW X6 M Competitors is a automotive that’s onerous to determine. On one hand, it kind of annoys the journalist in me, because it’s an excessively heavy, huge and thirsty SUV within the least applicable period ever for such automobiles. Additionally, it’s the kind of automotive I simply don’t usually like. Nonetheless, the little child in me sees an SUV with over 600 hp and the flexibility to frighten supercars after which I giggle. Saying it’s a automotive that I hate to like is perhaps correct. On this new video from Carwow, you may see why.
Few automobiles entice as a lot consideration as a plum-purple X6 M Competitors. Simply have a look at the automotive on this video, with it flamboyant exterior shade (which I like, for the document), gloss black accents, huge wheels and aggressive styling. But, with its funky styling and odd physique form, it won’t at all times be the most effective of consideration. Nonetheless, the little child in me would have thought a purply SUV in with huge wheels and black accents was superior.
Then there’s the efficiency. With its four.four liter twin-turbocharge V8, making 617 hp and 553 lb-ft, the BMW X6 M Competitors is an absolute monster. On this video, Carwow’s Mat Watson utilizing high-tech timing gear to clock the massive Bavarian Brute from Zero-60 mph in three.four seconds going downhill and three.5 seconds uphill. That’s scorching quick for an SUV. As absurd because the X6 M is, it’s robust to not smile and chuckle at that reality.
Objectively, efficiency SUVs are foolish as a result of they’ll by no means deal with in addition to correct efficiency automobiles, irrespective of how a lot crap automotive firms attempt promoting you. Nonetheless, the BMW X6 M Competitors handles effectively sufficient, and is much quick sufficient, to shock nearly anybody. Certain, it’s a totally remoted driving expertise but it surely’s nonetheless insane and it’s onerous to not love that.
Ultimately, Watson appears to love the BMW X6 M Competitors for that very purpose. Certain, it’s a bit off trying and completely pointless however there’s enjoyable in that and that makes all of it price it.
