New BMW X6 4.4TT

I got to drive this beast earlier, I'll say it's fast as hell and handles like no other car I've ever driven in its class. This is my mom's new car to replace her X5. Some say they look goofy but, it grows on you. They're only making a limited number of X6's, in [U]total of the full run it will be just about as many X5's as they make this year.

yeah, twin turbo V8, 400hp/450ft.lbs. torque at 1800-4500rpms.

Those are the intercoolers at the front.

He's a petroleum engineer and busted his ass his entire life to be able to buy whatever he wants now. He currently owns 4 oil companies.

I work at the best body shop in the midwest. Mainly restoring old Porsche's now. We're currently working on a 57' Speedster, 356C, and a 912 targa. The 912 targa is one of my father's Porsches.
