With its unique combination of coupe-like lines and the same capabilities of the X5, an SUV that defies conventions for on-road handling, it’s perhaps no surprise that the X6 has undergone a similar M-Division transformation to the X5 M. Handling motive duties is the same excellent 4.4-liter twin-turbocharged V8, which provides 555 horsepower effortlessly and without drama and almost entirely without lag. That allows the X6 M to hit 60 mph in well under 5 seconds, an impressive feat for what can’t be denied is a large vehicle. Interestingly, unlike many other M-Division cars, the X6 handled fairly well, so only minor revisions to the suspension are required—mainly, stiffer versions of the same units. Incredibly, cornering performance is also superb. Remember the “E46” generation M3? Well, the X6 M can lap the notoriously difficult Nürburgring circuit faster than that very quick car. Surprised? You shouldn’t be, as BMW seems to be able to make any of their lineup go very quickly with a wave of the “M” wand.

Let's not forget that BMW Motorsport always had a few basic rules that they lived by, A proper drivers car should never be to heavy, the engine should be powerful, but not supported by forced induction. Furthermore, only the rear wheels should drive it. And, a manual gearbox, sequential or not, is key. That philosophy has made sure all BMW M models were utterly great. This X6, with all its fuglyness, is the worst M car ever. It's a cramped, turbocharged, automatic, four wheel drive, overweight SUV... At least it's not a diesel...
