X6 E71 / E72 (2008 - 2014)
The BMW X6 luxury crossover went on sale in April 2008 as a 2009 model year. BMW referes to the X6 as a Sports Activity Coupe (SAC) as it combines the attributes of an SUV (high ground clearance, xDrive and all-weather ability) with the stance, styling and roof line shape of a coupe. The E71 X6 was built off the E70 X5 (2007 - 2013) platform at BMW's Spartanburg, SC plant. Total worldwide sales were just over 235,000, sold mostly to the BRIC countries. US total sales was 34,082 vehicles.

The engine in these new M models is a 4.4 liter, twin-scroll twin-turbo charged reverse flow V8 producing
555 horsepower and 500 ft-lbs of torque. Using new M patented technology called Cylinder-bank
Comprehensive Manifold or CCM, the twin turbo technology uses a single exhaust manifold with tuned
runners mounted on top of the engine to offer a broad, consistent torque curve from a 'charge pulse' every
90 degrees of crankshaft rotation for each turbocharger. This innovative engine is mated to a 6-speed
M Sports automatic transmission providing seamless shifting and M type steering wheel mounted paddle
shifters for a 0 to 60 mph time of 4.5 seconds.
An M tuned version of Dynamic Performance Control, combined with DSC and xDrive, provides M typical
handling in a SAV vehicle. Vectoring of torque both front to back and left to right significantly improves
cornering ability at all speeds for unparalleled performance and control in all driving conditions.
Both of these exciting vehicles are equipped with M features including large front intakes for cooling, rear
diffuser with quad tailpipes, M side gills and 20' allow wheels with mixed size performance run flat tires. M
sports seats; shifter, steering wheel, red needle gauges and extended Merino Leather complete the sporty

I'd rather have an M6 with the X6M engine and automatic transmission instead of the anemic-torque V10 and annoying SMG.

The V10 is fine for the Nurburgring but in the US it's all about torque, and while I want the M driving experience on the weekends, on weekdays I sit in traffic all the time and want a nice smooth-shifting sport automatic.
