More BMW X6 M Test Drives

This time MotorAuthority has released their drive of the X6 M ( http://www.motorauthority.com/first-...-bmw-x6-m.html ) and they seem to share similar comments to what the other members of the automotive press are saying today.

Quote:
Hurtling along at a cool 143mph (230km/h) in BMW's 2010 X6 M at Road Atlanta just before you shut it down hard for turn 10A, there's a brief moment where you wonder if it's even physically possible for the 5,324lb (2,415kg) missile you're now a part of to slow down enough to make the turn and avoid surfing the sand into the runoff area. But the moment passes and soon enough you're throwing the car into a four-wheel drift and pegging the throttle as you confidently accelerate up the hill to start a new lap.

....

Here is also a video posted up by girlraceronline

I saw what I assume is this exact X6M in Greenville SC 2 weeks ago. Greenville is Spartanburg's neighbor.... and how many red X6M's with that interior are out on the road already?

The handling of the X6 , M or standard versions is the most amazing and least talked about feature. DPC really works.

What are you so worried about? The x6 m ticks a very specific set of boxes for a very specific buyer - nobody is forcing you to buy one nor restricting your choice on other m cars.

If its blasphemy for one to try to make as SUV outhandle and out accelerate most sports cars, what do you call it when they succeed?

well, the way the reviews are shaping up - the panamera may well end up being the better car for many buyers. competition is a good thing - and I speak as someone who has enjoyed the fruits of the m division in the past.

I have no doubt you did.

Today 2 X6-M's were driving the streets of Atlanta around the Buckhead area on Lennox Road. One Dark-Green, and another a Blood-Red like color. They both had efficient dynamics graphics overlaid on the lower part of the car, across the rear bumper. They were sporting manufacture plates, and apparently in town for a movie of sorts. They both look stunning!

If the X6 M doesn't meet your "M" criteria, why don't you tell us what that criteria is and will see how it compares with. . . name it.
