The BMW Concept X6 has garnered a fair bit of press lately. As befuddled as some people are by the recent onslaught of new people movers from the "Ultimate Driving Machine" makers, others understand that if you need one of these types of vehicles as your daily driver you might as well have one that puts the "sport" in sport utility vehicle sport activity vehicle. We've seen sketches and even spy photos and then a build-up video interview with BMW designer Chris Bangle about the vehicle. Well, today there's more.

In this latest installment on the new BMW X6, Exterior Designer Pierre Leclercq discusses the overall coupe shape and touches on the fact that this will definitely be a unique vehicle that is a Nurburgring tested sports car and a bit of something else as well. The video also points out that there are two vehicles in this lineup. Not sure what that means, perhaps it alludes to the range of gasoline-powered six and eight-cylinder powerplants and diesel-fueled six-cylinder engines pirated from the X5. As we've already know, Leclercq says that we can expect to see the X6 in Frankfurt next week.

The video is after the jump. And don't forget, the IAA in Frankfurt is next week and we'll have tons of live coverage available by clicking here.

Thanks for the tip, smeidu!

        Here's hoping we don't hear any admonishment towards bangle anymore. I can't stand the bashing when people have absolutely no idea what they're talking about..(esp..when they don't know the designs done by fisker, hooydonk, bangle and pierre up above)
