BMW X6 M Audi RS Q8 Drag Racing Competition with a Twist
It’s pretty amazing the kind of cars we can buy these days and the kind of performance they deliver, if you can afford them, of course. When the first BMW X6 was released, much of the auto industry simply laughed at it. That laughter turned into outright screams when the M model also came out. Today, some thirteen years later, the idea of ââa high-performance SUV with a coupe-shaped roofline no longer seems so far-fetched.
Not only has the BMW X6 M evolved, but the competition has also grown with it. Besides what you would expect to see on the roads, namely rivals Audi and Mercedes-AMG, other automakers are also in this segment right now. From the Cayenne Coupe to the Urus and even the Aston Martin DBX. If there was no market for these cars, they simply wouldn’t see the light of day.
The video below showcases three of the most popular SUV Coupes you can buy today. It started off as a comparison between the Audi RS Q8 and the BMW X6 M Competition at first, but somehow a Lamborghini Urus also found its way into the mix and we’ll just move on to the drag race, from around 24 minutes. . As you’re about to see, the RS Q8 is doing pretty well compared to the Urus, especially after a dig. Even so, the superior specs of the Italian bull show up when both hit triple-digit speeds.
Then it’s time for the BMW to step in and, first, it brings the RS Q8 out of the water. Seeing how unlucky the Audi is, the guys decide to do another couple of races with a twist: the BMW takes two passengers on board. That way the heavier BMW will have a harder time beating the Audi, they hope. Did it work? Only one way to find out: hit play below.
