It's quick for an almost three-ton crossover.
To say that the BMW X6 M is a pretty vehicle is a lie. To say that the crossover is blisteringly fast would, however, not be a lie. In fact, the new X6 M is so fast that it reportedly posted a time of 8:20 on the Nurburgring. According to, BimmerToday, which sites AutoZeitung, the hefty X6 M managed to lap the Green Hell in a blistering time. With the Nurburgring banning vehicles from setting fast laps, we may never know if the behemoth could go faster.
How good is the crossover’s time of 8:20? Well, to put it into context, the E46 M3 lapped the ring a full two seconds slower than the X6 M. The X6 M is also relatively close to the fastest SUV to lap the Nurburgring—the Range Rover Sport SVR—that posted a time of 8:14. While the X6 M is far from pretty, there’s no denying the crossover’s ability to put all of its 567 horsepower down in a sporty manner.
