Matthias Malmedie fährt den neuen BMW X6M


Matthias Malmedie meets the new BMW X6 M.

“Dude. That's crazy!”Matthias Malmedie meets the new BMW X6 M.

Pole position for Matthias Malmedie: the professional racing driver is not known for his patience – so the GRIP presenter was all the more delighted to get up close and personal with the new BMW X6 M before it has even been launched. However, given that BMW’s latest high-performance SAV has yet to be officially unveiled, it is not only well camouflaged; the interior also has the appearance of a prototype, with many elements covered in felt mats. This prevents full-throttle enthusiast Malmedie seeing too much of the car before everyone else – but not from enjoying its monstrous acceleration and track-defying handling.

While Malmedie shows us a lot of the new BMW X6 M, he doesn’t get to reveal everything: parts of his commentary have been censored with a bleep, because some of the information he reveals in the video is still top secret. This is set to change on 3 October 2019, when the GRIP presenter will be able to put the pedal to the metal in a brand-new film about the X6 M.

Malmedie on a secret mission. The BMW X6 M.

"I'm as happy as a little kid: I'm being allowed to drive a car that hasn't even been launched yet, one that's still top secret."


Matthias Malmedie is the go-to authority on German television for automobile enthusiasts. You could even say that in Germany, ‘M’ stands for motorsport, for BMW M...and for Malmedie. The presenter of the GRIP – The Motor Magazine has a proven weakness for particularly powerful cars and thus a special affinity to BMW M. In short: if it revs and roars on German television or the internet, Malmedie is usually not far away. As the holder of a racing driver’s licence, he always keeps his sports cars firmly under control, without taking himself too seriously. Malmedie presents his show with an appealing mix of expert knowledge, humour and pure foot-to-the-floor fun. It’s clearly a winning combination: around two million fans follow the performance-driven auto-tester on TV and social media, waiting with anticipation for his latest video posts on Facebook, Instagram and YouTube. Presenter, adrenaline junkie, car tester, public celebrity: Matthias Malmedie does it all.

  • The models illustrated include optional equipment.

    The values of fuel consumptions, CO2 emissions and energy consumptions shown were determined according to the European Regulation (EC) 715/2007 in the version applicable at the time of type approval. The figures refer to a vehicle with basic configuration in Germany and the range shown considers optional equipment and the different size of wheels and tires available on the selected model. 

    The values are already based on the new WLTP regulation and are translated back into NEDC-equivalent values in order to ensure the comparison between the vehicles. [With respect to these vehicles, for vehicle related taxes or other duties based (at least inter alia) on CO2-emissions the CO2 values may differ to the values stated here.] 

    The CO2 efficiency specifications are determined according to Directive 1999/94/EC and the European Regulation in its current version applicable. The values shown are based on the fuel consumption, CO2 values and energy consumptions according to the NEDC cycle for the classification. 

    For further information about the official fuel consumption and the specific CO2 emission of new passenger cars can be taken out of the „handbook of fuel consumption, the CO2 emission and power consumption of new passenger cars“, which is available at all selling points and at
