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.
Right next to the Q7 V12 TDi .

And what's the reasoning for the last statement regarding the Cayenne Turbo S?
