Winner of the Question No One Asked Award…
You have to hand it to BMW. Just as the world is collectively made redundant, the world economy decides to commit very public suicide and everyone suddenly decides to pay forensic attention to C02 emissions, they launch the X6; an SAV that defines the notion of conspicuous consumption.
It only seats four, looks like someone shot a 6-series full of bull testosterone and then made it balance on rollerskates, and has the subtlety of Keith Chegwin off his face on cocaine.
The plaudits don’t stop there though – the X6 is remarkable to drive on road, thanks to its utter inability off it – despite the rugged looks. It does precisely nothing that any other BMW car in the range doesn’t do better – as if the people planning the car have not looked up from their welding long enough to ask the question: ‘who the hell are we building this thing for anyway?’
Let’s face it, if the X6 were a person, it would be the city banker whose hobby was kicking tramps to death in handmade brogues – it is two fingers to the credit crunch, practicality, the environment, poor people and rationality. If it were the 1980s, BMW would be laughing. But it isn’t, and as a result, nobody on planet earth gets the joke.
