Can Someone Tell Us What On Earth Is Up With This BMW X6?

This must be what you end up with when you combine a first-generation BMW X6 with a Pandora bracelet. So much weird stuff is going on here, we don’t even know where to begin.

Underneath all that nonsensical bling lies a perfectly good premium crossover. In fact, we really hope that designers who got to work on the X6 before it was launched can be kept away from seeing this image, otherwise they might need some serious counseling.

Let’s break it down

Starting with the roof, we see a bunch of security cameras and a couple of lights maybe? Meanwhile, the boot lid gets arguably the weirdest excuse for a “rear wing” ever, comprised of what look like censers on each side, like the ones priests use during religious ceremonies. Fitting, since the car could definitely use an exorcism.

Below all of that we see a bunch of canisters, some wiring and a set of massive exhaust tips, not to mention the smiley faces, reflective decals, a pair of eyeballs, a small ‘X6’ inscription and the word ‘Stop’ flanking the BMW badge.

The rest of the vehicle features other various inserts, some type of soft-touch housing for the door handles, an additional mirror (at least on one side) and custom wheels that seem to be fitted with accessories.

Responsible for uploading this image to Reddit was somebody with the username Ben77mc, who made a connection between this car and the Ghostbusters, although we don’t really see it. The Ghostbusters vehicle, aka Ecto-1, was packed full of equipment on top, had a latter on one side and some tubes on the other side. Nothing really decorative about it – unlike this…thing.

  • Mr. EP9

    There’s a lot wrong with this thing; for starters it has that awful coupe styling. That junk stuck all on it as the second most obvious problem.

  • Matthew Raworth

    That thing would be a hazard on a motorway. Only in the uk would you find anything like this

    • Stephen G

      How so?

      • Matthew Raworth

        Kinda looks like some of the ‘add-ons’ might fly off at higher speeds

    • Matt

      Are you sure you’d only find this in the UK? Have you seen the busses in India?

  • Stephen G

    Trying to make it look better.

  • Eric

    This is what happens when poor re-sale value and a distinct lack of taste converge.

  • TheBelltower

    Moar stickers = Moar fancy. Duh!

    Is this person using fire extinguishers as bumpers?

  • XtremWize

    Back from de future 2057 ?

  • GobbleUp

    Looks better than stock. Hire the designer.

  • Loquacious Borborygmus

    What a mess!
    Oh!….you mean the extras?

  • ErnieB

    Ain’t no amount of cover up will make the X6 look better..

  • Paul

    It looks like someone with an overzealous imagination had too much time on their hands.

  • Mark Seven-Ultranine

    Obviously it is a tornado chasing vehicle. You know, like the pickup in “Twister.”

  • haji

    Why? I thought you guys are all aware of those camo’d premium SUVs?

  • Mike anonymous

    ARE YOU KIDDING?… YOU DON’T KNOW,.. the owner of this BMW is obviously trying to reach a top speed of 88 miles per hour and activate his flux capacitor, and it’s clearly powered by a ‘Mr. Fusion’ drive. I would have thought people would have recognized it sooner… …Marty probably has a family by now, and simply wants to take the kids with him on his adventures.
