Journalists across the world continue to review the first BMW xDrive M vehicle, X6 M. The 2010 BMW X6 M made its debut earlier this year at the New York Auto Show and it was put through heavy testing by a large group of journalists at the International Media Launch in Atlanta.

Opinions have been split, raving reviews from some, but negative feedback from others. Unexpected? Not totally, every single, non-classic BMW model has been through this purgatory and the X6 M makes no exception.

The Aussie fellows at CarAdvice took their turn behind the 555 horsepower M SAC and let’s see what they have to say.

High-end watch company Hublot is all about the Big Bang, one of the world’s hottest selling watches, and yes, its very big and very impressive.

So to is BMW’s latest M car, the monster powered Sports Activity Vehicle (SAV) the X6 M, the Big Bang of the SUV world, if you will. To describe this thing as fast would be a gross injustice to what BMW have created in the X6 M, this is a 2.3 tonne supercar that single-handedly rewrites the laws of physics, at least as I know them.

Acceleration out of the very tight turn four towards the left-hander at Siberia is supercar quick, but that’s only after you have punished the living daylights out of the brakes at the last possible moment before turn-in.

And I don’t mean just once or twice; even after 15 laps on the limit, these things were positively fade-free and performing as if it were lap one.

    I dont really care what they say..good or bad all I know that this is a kick ass machine , could be stronger but I think when they compare it to ml and turbo the X6 will be victorious , maybe not in luxury , the car is about looks and power , the x6 itself is a looker , the only recent bmw that looks stunning to me

    Yeah this is a gorgeous beast unlike the GT I can stomach this as a crossover and the power and agility will satisfy my need for a smaller vehicle. The lady in red in the photo above is beautiful. Audi needs to make something like this that q5 wont cut it.

      someone will do their version of a 4 door coupe sooner or later , MB and audi are first on the list to hit strong on the X6 and when they do , the glory days of X6 will be gone as gone but dont get me wrong I really like X6 , its may fav bmw by far
