Umm,

no offence - but that's just plain altitude and just regular bad roads. Even a 50,000 bike can do.

Now if we were to see it truly offroading - now THAT is simply mindblowing

/not that i can ever afford one - but I have much more mad respect to recent NIOC thread where X6(?) went offroading around Manesar amidst thick bushes and all!
PS: All this talk of capability being tested is frankly hilarious - an ex HR head of ours took his 3.0L v6 accord up there complete with lotsa belly scraping - without any damages - these are purpose built vehicles in comparison!!

well i took her to places where no bike can go.

unfortunately, i only have videos and not too many photos of the crazy things we have done with this car

1) attempting to climb up a sand dune (and comparing the x6 to my land cruiser.....she did pretty well for a hybrid)

2) going off road beyong rohtang pass, towards keylong. and driving on river beds near GHNP.

Cheers!!!!

Really?! That's great! How does it handle our third grade high sulphur diesel? How old is the car? How many Kms? Any issues with poor fuel?

35d is the best pick of the lot. The twin turbo engine must develop some insaaaaane torque surge. Good choice, mate ! Whats the ex-showroom price of it?

How did the runflats hold up?

Lovely post.

KB would love to see you participate with this is the Desert Storm I have been telling a lot of my friends who own SUV's that once in a while they need to take these to places that these were meant to conquer.

Karl,

Very brave of you to take vehicle to such terrains. Not many people will take such a vehicle in such terrains!

Since you say you have the videos, can you upload them to utube and link it up here?

Sexy car, nice pix, nice guts

More pix if you have please.

OT, read about a touring to Leh or so where they had Q7, X5, Montero and one M class IIRC. Guess what? most got stuck and Montero had to be called for free them !


For records!

286bhp 3.0-litre twin-turbodiesel powerplant, which features under the bonnet of the X6 35d driven here. The engine is mated to a six-speed automatic trans*mission as standard, torque figure of 580Nm.
