But before we do that make sure you subscribe to the channel hit the bell icon, Teutonia notifications on so you're alerted when we make a new upload let's, give up this review by talking about the x6m engine it's a four point: four liter twin turbo v8, and It has what's known as a hot V, which sounds quite rude. What it actually means is that the turbos in the V, it means, has less distance for the air to travel before it goes into the engine and it improves the response where this is body armor anyway. This engine has 750 Newton meters of torque and in the normal xyx M it produces 600 horsepower. In this xyx M competition it's increased to 625 horsepower. So does it feel quick according to BMW, this car will do nought to 60 in just 3.8 seconds, but will it well as if I'm, going to find out I've got my specialist timing gear here. I'Ve got a closed stretch of road and then launch it so happens, and it's also measure than naught to 100 and the stunning quarter. It'S we're doing this on the public highway, but thankfully I'm allowed to today. Let'S. Do it yup, quick click on the line come on? This is so are doing on the road. I feel naughty that's, the core. Oh easy. Now, oh wow I've got Nord 60 in 3.4 seconds, naught to 100 7.9 seconds let's check out the second quarter mile in 11.
6 seconds. I know what you're thinking I did those times going downhill. Unfortunately, I can't alter the topography of the land here. So, in fairness, prove I'm, not being sponsored by BMW, I'm gon na. Do it up the hill there we go again well, that's skip to me off the light it strictly for traction. What you're gon na do uphill still feels great, very quick, oh that's enough for that. What even though it's uphill noir two sixty three point five seconds nor two, one hundred eight point three seconds and the standing quarter mile is eleven point seven seconds. So not all that much different, really impressive. The x6m gets some starting upgrades over the normal x6. It has revised from bumper, which is more aggressive, and the competition version has black surrounds for the rather huge kidney grilles. Moving down the side, you get bigger log wheels. 21 inches as standard on the normal x6m, though the x6m competition has 22 inch rear wheels. Just does you also get side skirts, and i should point this out. It'S a quien feature, the aerodynamic and mirrors which I am fisting little spoiler. There got your exits and badging competition as well to just highlight it's, a very rain, stopping version, a rear diffuser, which doesn't probably diffuse much at all, it's just there for show, but what's not there for show these quad tailpipes, as I'll illustrate now with the car, Were phone of truth, because I don't have a stick.
Look at this, though they're big enough to fit my Samsung Galaxy plus in there I'm, probably melting the phone right now, just to show you they're real. There are also plenty of upgrades here on the inside of the x6m, so you get em sports steering or with the end badging on it. You got some em colored stitching, which you also get on the safety belts and on the gear knob, which is unique to em cars. It also has three different settings for the gear box when you're shifting in manual mode and then there's M specific buttons here, a red starter button as well you've got aluminum pedals, a limiting kit plates and they're illuminated M specific floor mats and then there's M dials And when you see the car on the infotainment system, it's the proper x6m in the color, you bought it now. The trim panel on here is normally aluminium on the M cars, but you can't grade it to this carbon fiber same here with the center console and as you can see there, you've got your X extend badging there and competition added. If you pay the extra for the competition model, then of these seats, absolutely lovely wing back seats, two tone, soft Marino, leather, and, if you want to you, can upgrade them so they have a massage function. Of course, a standard they are fully electric and very very adjustable. They also have a honeycomb pattern to them, which is actually mirrored in the door cards.
In fact, the door codes are unique to this x6m as well, and then it's Alcantara for the headlining, which is lovely M cars aren't just about the shape they're, also about that go and the stop that's. Why this car some seriously upgraded brakes so you've got ventilated, discs all round the '5 millimeters up front and 380 at the back, then there's, some huge calipers, which have six Pistons in them, that's insane also you've got floating discs. The central hub is actually aluminium that helps, keep the weight down and then you've got the steel disc, but it's not mounted directly onto it, and that means that the two metals can expand at different rates. They can take 100 degrees higher than standard breaks, but how well do they work let's, find out. Okay, let's see if these brakes are any good in their bright test. When I reach that sign, full emergency, stop see what happens there. We go here's a scientist, a scientist aside, goodness wool, so this breaked from 70 miles an hour to zero in forty five point: nine meters and it took 3.2 seconds, but I was actually going over 70 let's see what I did from 100 miles an hour. It took ninety one point: nine meters from 100 miles an hour and that took 4.4 seconds. The highway code says that you should be able to break from certain distances to this. These figures here so this BMW D, considerably better now, let's just check one last thing: the G Force under deceleration, 1.
28 G. I did feel that I could fill my brain just smashing against the front of my skull. Hopefully, I haven't got concussion we've established this car. Can accelerate hard, it can break hard, but it also needs to corner hard that's. Why BMWs M division has fitted it with a load of extra bracing. You can even see the extra bracing here just in the engine bay there's more throughout the car as well. The x6m also gets an upgraded variable steering system that's, designed to be nice and responsive without ever feeling over the edgy there's also upgraded M sport, suspension and it's adaptive as well. So you can choose between different modes. There'S active anti roll stabilization to keep the car nice and upright through faster turns, and you have a special in dynamic mode for the stability control which, like a halfway house with a bit of kind of layer, eNOS but it'll still get you up. If you get things wrong, the cars four wheel drive system is set up for a rear, wheel, drive bias but there's even a four wheel, drive sport mode, which is even more rear, drive, biased and then, as the M rear differential, which can send power to the Rear wheel with a most grip, yet Michelin Pilot Sport 4s tires are standard which have been specifically engineered for this car and then wider on the back, then, at the front, once again to enhance that rear drive feel and on this competition version, there 11.
5 inches across Huge let's see what difference these chassis upgrades makes straightaway. The car feels more alert than the x 6. The suspension is, obviously farmer gives it a sporty edge and it just doesn't really leave her at all car. Obviously, if you get too carried away, you're going to be pushing wide in the corner, because it's still quite heavy, you can't overcome physics, but those huge tires do give you loads and loads of grip. The steering is probably the standout thing really it's. So sharp. You turn the car just responds immediately. It definitely has the M vibe going love it easy as agile as a Porsche Cayenne. Coupe. A so close needs are back to back them to be sure. In fact, if you want to just check out my review at the Porsche Cayenne, coupe a click on the papaya banner up there, I just want to tell you about the new car. Well app. You can use it just kind of cars number plate. He'Ll! Tell you how much that car is worth doing the app. If you click on the pop out banner up there, you can download it for free and use it to check out how much you can save on this beam to do x6m competition, because it starts from 113 thousand pounds, which is quite a lot, though you do Get quite a bit extra kit with this car as standard the competition version of this car, which we only get in the UK, gets an upgraded exhaust over the standard x6m as standard the x6m gets a heads up display.
So you can see your speed and your revs. We got having to take your eyes off the road. It also get something called ed mode, so it's it's the car up for various activities and if you put into track mode it will even do stuff like shut down. The infotainment system reduce the volume from the stereo, so you can just focus on driving. You also get some special doors as well when you're in this M mode in a little bit more sporty, you get these em1 and em2 driving buttons and they allow you to access pre, selected driving modes. Super easy. You actually set them up using the screen. Here. You get the car exactly as you want it. Customers can choose from a wide range of paint colors, including three specific M colours. One of them is a really weird green, it's kind of cool, though, however, not everything about this car is great here's. Five annoying things about it. The key design feature of M cars are their side. Air breathers, and this one is completely blocked off. Maybe they should call it a side. Supper cater builder. The M cars are supposed to excel on track I'm, not sure how this thing would do, because it's a bit of a fatass weighs in at 2000 370 kilos like the normal x6, you can't get the x6m with rear wheel, steering reason being the wheels are just Too wide can't do it bit of a shame really because it would make the car more money of what we're just driving around town.
If you buy one of these things in your up, it won't sound as good as if you buy one in the States it's that good. This is a very conversion. The reason is, the European cars have to have a petrol particulate filter, whereas in America they don't and those filters just kill the sound. The x6m uses the exact same patterns in the m5. The only thing is that, while that car has ability to go in two wheel, drive mode this one hasn't got it it's, nothing to do with mechanicals they're, exactly the same it's, just because BMW doesn't want to let it which seems like a bit of a shame, Because it'd be fun, doing huge donuts in this then there's a boot which at 580 liters is really big enough, though it's still slightly smaller than a Porsche can ku pays and Audi RS q8 and the Mercedes AMG GLA 63s coupe ace. That was a mouthful. There are some other problems with this car there they're common to the normal x6, and one of them is that Headroom it's, not the greatest. I mean I'm okay, but really tall people might struggle it's, definitely not as roomy as the square shaped x5 it's a bit of a shame, because, overall, the still plenty of room here in the back. Finally, we need to talk about what this X exam is like to drive when you're not wanting to fully utilize all those m upgrades those fat tires do create a bit more road noise and the sports suspension means you do fill bombs a little bit more though It'S, never terrible the trade off is that when you're on the motorway going at speed, this thing does feel a bit more planted than the normal X 6.
And if you simply need to overtake someone the gearbox, it responds quicker and, of course, you've got all the performance from that turbocharged v8 engine. This thing will top out a 174 miles an hour, which is great if you live in Germany and you're on the Autobahn. But for the rest of the world, it's pretty pointless being able to go to that quickly, which kind of begs the question: why bother with this car in the first place? Well, some people want the ultimate incarnation of something, and this is the ultimate incarnation of a BMW, SUV, simple. So then what's my final verdict on the BMW, x6m competition. Should you avoid it? Should I consider it should is shortlist it, or should he just go right ahead and buy it? Well, I reckon you should shortlist it. You see it's right at the very top of its game when it comes to performance and handling it's. Just that SUVs also about the styling and I don't think it looks as good as an Audi RS q8, but hey that's, subjective isn't it. I just want to preach to you guys that the road was closed. So here's our deputy, which has been provided by the local police, he may have a German accent and be working for BMW, but this this stuff clearly is very real. Only joking he's one of the photographer team, the real police, have shut the road they're up there. Keeping cars from going past, we are bye, bye, the roads.
