If this isn't the biggest showboating by he german mark to the struggling American companies on their home turf. When the american's are being told to build cars noone wants, BMW turns up in New York with a stonking X6M. http://www.evo.co.uk/news/evonews/235152/bmw_x6m_and_hybrid.html "BMW’s big news in New York is the X6M SUV. Unveiled as part of a pair with the X5M, the main emphasis at the show seems to be on the X6, with a car on each of the brand’s two show stands. It boasted particular presence in red, attracting a lot of attention. The engine itself is a 4.4-litre and gets patented twin-turbo technology, mated with turbo lag-eliminating tech in the shape of CCM (cylinder-bank comprehensive manifold). Power and torque are rated at 547bhp and 500lb ft, enough to shift the X6M to 60mph in almost supercar time at 4.5sec."
