I still don't know how that's possible with these things weighing over two tons.
According to the article almost everything is carried over from the X6 50i only tweaked a bit, it's still got the same ZF auto, the same basic suspension setup, the same awd system though tweaking it so more of the power goes to the rear and stays there for longer, it still has the same torque vectoring rear diff. Though I would imagine the brakes to be ceramic this time round.

Personally I think it will be a dog to drive, as the normal X6 35d is as hard as a go-kart and as bouncy as hell over a series of bumps, add twice the power and tie it down and you are looking at the worst/most pointless SUV on the planet, sure it will be the fastest on the track and on mototrways but away from these I reckon no one will have the convidence to push it as hard as you would a Cayenne Turbo S.
