Once again, Palbay, a member of germancarzone.com has come through for everyone. He is known to always have the latest and greatest BMW X6 photos. He has met our expectations again and he recently posted some new photos showing the X6 XDrive 50i, roaming around the BMW Performance Center in Spartanburg.
According to him, the Vermillion Red X6 seem to be the first finished BMW X6 50i. As you might know by know, the X6 50i is powered by a V8 Twin-Turbo engine. But here is what he had to say:
Hey guys,I finally caught two beautiful TT V-8 X6’s out testing yesterday.They appeared to be finished production level 50i’s.These are the first two finished V-8’s I’ve spotted.They appeared from a very unlikely location.These two X6’s popped out of some roll up doors in the BMW Training and Development Center.I thought this was some sort of HR Facility for advanced training for BMW Associates.I just happened to drive by this place,like I have many times in the past.I’ve never seen any X6’s enter or exit from this place.It had a kind of James Bond feeling to the whole thing,this door rolls up and out pop’s two red X6’s hauling ass!!! I got behind and beside one of the cars at a stop sign.One of the doors opened and a guy got out…..and walked toward me…rutt row
Luckily the guy kidda grinned at me and opened up the rear hatch.I’m not sure what the stuff is hanging out of the hatch.There were two X6’s and they were in a hurry.They did several high speed runs on this road behind the BMW Plant.They would do a uturn prior to getting to the traffic light at each end of the street.
After a couple of passes on this road the X6’s went to the Performance Center and did 4 or 5 hot laps there.One last comment.These V-8’s did not sound well at all.They had the deep “NASCAR” V-8 rumble,but almost sounded like they were misfiring or running on less than 8 cylinders.Maybe that was somehow tied into the test they were preforming.At least yesterday they did not sound like a precision german engineered V-8.
