New X6 Photos including XDrive50i Fresh From The Factory

Hey guys.I hit the lotto at the BMW Factory this past Friday.X6's crawling all over the place!! My luggage was lost on a canceled flight Thurs night.Had to wait at the local airport for a flight w/ my luggage.Rather than wait an hour at the airport or go back home,I decided to see what was happening at the plant.The Airport is right next door to the airport.The White X6 was upclose to the Plant and the two guys inside were messing w/ the center console.The line of X6's following the Z4 is pretty interesting.I'm certain this was a group of Auto Journalist,Dealers,or some other VIP's.Somebody was getting an early look and test drive of the X6.I think this might have been 2 35i's and 2 50i's,given the 2 black grills and two chrome grills.These cars proceeded directly to the Performance Center.I found a place to catch a few pic's of the X6 on the track.Whoever was driving these cars were hammering the heck out of these babies!!! The Red X6 is the first XDrive50i I've seen anywhere around here.You can clearly see the rectangle exhaust tips,a TT V-8 for sure.Of course this "heavy metal" was sneaking in BMW's local "Skunk Works", the "Special Vehicle Operations" Bld.I've got to find out what goes on in there.The Silver X6 was not part of the Performance Center group.Silver looks good on the X6.This will take a couple of post.Enjoy! Thanks.PalBay

I asked earlier this morning, were they doing anything with the X6 and nobody really know. As for the burgundy X6 in the pics, it belongs to a senior engineer!!!

why everybody is suggesting a drop for this car?!

Whats the point of all that engineering and xdrive and DPC for handling if you re to lower the car?

you're destroying the whole point of this car...

omfg this car is so hot..its the perfect car for me. I hate driving my range rover sport in the winter now that i moved up north. I love my 328i but its been sitting in the garage for the last 3 months. I might just get rid of those cars and buy myself an x6 5.0...now i get the best of both worlds. I LOVE BMW!!!!

Thats usually where they hide out the new "uncovered" vehicles until they are released to the engineers and big guys. I think a lot of testing operations test place there too.

Please tell me they're secretly testing a new rear seat for the X6 - one where 3 people can sit in the back?

Thats a train of X6s. Thanks for posting. Guess that wait in the airport has been well justified.
