2015 BMW X6 M (F86) promises to be as fast as the old M3 Coupe (E92) on the Nurburgring

Article by Christian Andrei, on November 1, 2014

What comes as a big surprise is that the all-new BMW X6 M (F86) is as fast as the old M3 Coupe (E92) when lapping the well-known Nurburgring racetrack located in Germany. BMW M project manager Herbert Bayerl declined to say what is the official time of the 2015 BMW X6 M, but we do know that the M3 Coupe (E92) was able to lap the racetrack in 8 minutes and 5 seconds.

Still, the biggest achievement is that the BMW X6 M is much faster than the 2015 Range Rover Sport SVR, which claimed the title of the fastest SUV on the Nurbrurgring with 8 minutes and 14 seconds. The high-performance British SUV is powered by a 5.0-liter supercharged V8 engine that delivers 550 hp and 680 Nm (502 lb-ft) of torque.

The engine pushes the vehicle from 0 to 100 km/h (62 mph) in 4.7 seconds, while top speed is limited at 260 km/h or 162 mph. Meanwhile, the 2015 BMW X6 M is powered by a 4.4-liter twin-turbo V8 engine that delivers 575 hp and 750 Nm (553 lb-ft) of torque.

With these numbers, the vehicle can sprint from 0 to 100 km/h (62 mph) in 4.2 seconds, while top speed is limited at 250 km/h or 155 mph. Still, as an option, BMW can increase the top speed limit to 280 km/h or 173 mph.

When compared with the previous model, the new X6 M is about 20 seconds faster on the Nurburgring as well as more fuel-efficient.
