There are no official tests to test how rapid is the newly unveiled 2015 BMW X6 M on the track, but according to Auto Sport, the model is considered as fast as the E92 BMW M3.
The conclusions were reached after the 2015 BMW X6 M has run over 8,000 kilometers on the Nurburgring, which makes it equal to the BMW E92 M3.
The 2015 BMW X6 M thus run the Nurburgring-Nordschleife in a good 8:24 minutes, while the E92 M3 managed 8:04 minutes, which will make the F86 X6 M 20 seconds faster than the previous model.
The performance is also due to the SUVs weight, as Herbert Bayerl, the project manager at BMW, states that the 2015 BMW X6 M is just 2,275 kg, which would easy compete the lighter E92 M3, with its 1,700 kilos.
The record lap held at Nurburgring belongs however to the Range Rover Sport SVR, running 8:14 minutes, a good timing which BMW says it managed to overcome it many times.
