Testing at the world famous Nürburging must be a lot of fun.
You're presented with easily one of the most challenging courses across the globe and you get to really put a product through its paces.
The best part? It's not your own. All for the sake of Research & Development.
Now, our subjects. While the all-new, 2015 BMW M3 has been outed, the all-new BMW X6M has still been kept under wraps. Though the all-new X5 has been on the market for months now, the X6 is lagging behind — not to mention the M variants. From what we know, interested parties shouldn't be expecting much differentiation in the motor department as power is expected to come from the same bi-turbo V8 good for just over 550 horsepower. We hope there's some different tuning to eek out a bit more oomph but if the car drops some weight I don't think we'll mind a carryover powerplant.
Personally, I am awaiting the M3/M4. I think this is going to be an event because, to me, the last-gen M3 was a let down. My only concern is the vehicle's steering. After having an E46 it's tough to yearn for that feel but only be presented with electric-assisted options that are numb as a tooth post dental work.
Anyhow, check out the short clip of the X6M and M3 doing work on the track.
