    • Stock F86 X6M vs. Revo Technik Stage 2 tuned MKVII Golf R from a stop and roll

      Two very different vehicles here but both impressive in their own way. The F86 X6M is potent thanks to the revised S63TU twin turbo 4.4 liter V8 which makes the 5300 pound Bavarian tank hustle quite impressively.


      The Golf R does not have much in common with the X6M other than all wheel drive and four doors. By contrast the Volkswagen features a 2.0 liter motor less than half the size but it does have a dual clutch transmission. Do not forget it is carrying almost 1000 less pounds as well.

      The first run is from a stop and the X6M gets a jump. It is able to hold off the Golf R which appears to inch closer but can not close the gap.

      From a roll it is closer but the X6M ultimately wins. We live in an era where BMW SUV's are potent roll racing cars.

      There is a 996 Turbo in the video which appears to be slightly quicker than both although its spec is unknown.
