BMW X6M Claws Its Way around COTA in Short Review

We knew Bob Flavin had driven the new BMW X6M on the Circuit of the Americas, but it’s taken over a month for the result of the drive to finally make it onto the web, in video review form.

There’s not much talking going on in the video, as the reviewer concentrates to keep the X6M on the track. He is completely won over by its sheer capability, even if it’s at odds with the kind of vehicle it is and what you’d expect one to do.

It’s an alternative to the usual BMW M saloons, but with even more practicality and a more distinctive look. If that’s what you’re after, then Flavin says you’re better off with this X6M, instead of the other available M cars.

Now, I`m not trying to nitpick here, and I`ve not been in or driven this new X6M, but the engine sounds just as flat and artificial as in the past model. Why doesn’t BMW learn a thing or two from Audi and Mercedes when it comes to making a turbo V8 sound good…
