Revealed yesterday via a press release that comically labours the Falcon metaphor, this latest ‘bird of prey’ is ‘perfectly adapted to its habitat’, says the company:
“Instead of sweeping through the sky, it swept around the North Loop of the Nürburgring in numerous laps until the chassis developers were totally satisfied with the set-up…
“Now the X6 remains firmly on the ground even at speeds which a normal Falcon only achieves in a nosedive…”
And our favourite?
“While birds sing in high keys, the bass engine note of the Falcon is more suggestive of a big cat.”
Perched on its 22ins alloy wheels, (‘perched’ – geddit?) Schnitzer’s X6 Falcon is blessed with PU plastic body extensions, ‘racing’ tailpipes and lots of go-faster trim decorating the interior.
With a small power increase from a modified ECU, we’ll take Schnitzer’s word that this is a car “with no natural enemies out there”.
