    There is only one reason….

    ….to make money from people who are to bloody awkward to buy any other vehicle that BMW make! ๐Ÿ˜†

    It is a daft car in my opinion ๐Ÿ™„

    Well, I can sort of see a niche for the X1, but the X6 is plain crazy. A coupe/SUV hybrid?

    The new Mini Coupe has to be up there too.

    Both fugly cars.

    As a mate of mine says….. “just like a Focus on Steroids”

    They do an M-version too <fx> Facepalm </fx>

    Porsche Cayenne Turbo is the car that proves the Germans have a sense of humour….. seriously good fun, 2+ tonnes of metal should not move that quickly short of falling off a cliff !

    G-Wizz is the only thing that comes close in the pointlessness stakes.
    [EDIT] Beaten to it[EDIT] Any journey with a car that can’t go more than 20miles (remember you have to get back too!) with no luggage space must be better by bike.

    This is argueably more pointless but does look great fun
    At least it can go off-road too. Probably better at charging accross deserts than picking it’s way through a ofrrest mind.

    The X6 is a proper wankerwagon for sure.

    C’mon – this is every single last bit as ugly.

    It didn’t seem to work out that way for ex-owners Uday Hussein and Saaf Gaddafi, both of whom failed to charge across deserts away from their eventual captors…

    Take a decent, modern looking car
    Jack it up
    Make it eat lard for a few months

    have you seen the 5 series GT?

    that is one wierd car…

    There’s this

    Which seems to have managed to hit those few branches on the ugly tree that even the X6 missed.

    5 series seems similar-ish to the Merc R 350. Not exactly hateful, just really really weird and specific.
    Can’t decide if it’s totally pointless or in fact very useful for the really specific role of a big, sort of estate, sort of soft – roader, which is also incredibly luxurious and fast. Odd.

    I don’t know really… The Austin Ambassador always struck me as pretty pointless. Take a genuinely shit car and make a luxury version, basically spraypainting a turd silver and dousing it in cheap aftershave. Still a turd, just a turd for people that wanted the impression of something expensive.

    At least you could argue that the X6 is useful for … Nope. Not really got a good answer to that.

    First time I’ve seen that Mini Cooper………..yuck.

    What was once a great design (the original Mini) now trashed by the Germans ๐Ÿ˜‰

    Ever notice these “pointless” or “stupid” car threads are always about cars the OP and subsequent posters can’t afford?

    I’ll have you know I can easily afford an Austin Ambassador

    Who says we can’t afford them (or already own one of the cars posted already…)

    @randomjeremy – that’s one hell of an assumption sir.

    @thepurist – maybe, but I’d be willing to wager a pretty penny it’s true ๐Ÿ˜‰

    Maybe, but at least give us filthy proles something to aspire to.

    If you’re going there, then what about the Allegro VdP?

    Anybody want a bet that random owns an X6 (because he likes to show everybody he can afford it – even though it’s actually on HP which he’s struggling to meet the payments for).

    If you could afford and did own one, would you admit to owning any of the above?

    OK not a production model but still pretty pointless –

    @randomjeremy – OK, a quick search finds X6s starting at 25-26K. I’d wager there’s a good few of us on this thread who could afford that if we chose to.. if we lost all sense of taste and decency that is.

    It’s much cheaper to get a replacement dick than an X6!

    As the 6th Duke of Westminster, I’ll have to respectfully disagree ๐Ÿ˜‰

    interesting point, but is it not because when the ridiculous cars are ‘high value’ it exacerbates the daftness many fold?
