BMW Group offers up some pretty amazing machines in 2020, but can you afford them? That might be the ultimate question when you see the fifth car on our list. Kinetech Motor Werkes provides topnotch preventative maintenance and automotive repair services for European makes and models, and we know how to keep BMW Group automobiles running as they should be. Here are five 2020 BMW Group automobiles that have knocked the socks off those who have tested them or already bought them.
Whether you want the coupe or convertible, this vehicle gives its drivers a ton of power. What’s underneath the hood? A 4.4-liter, twin-turbocharged, DOHC V8 engine. How many horses? Try 617 and 553 pound-feet of torque. Can you handle that baby? The automatic transmission has eight gears and the all-wheel-drive system gives you plenty of grip of the road to fly through all of them.
BMW is three generations into the X6 series and its drivers love this car. This vehicle is produced here in the U.S. at BMW’s largest plant in the world, the Spartanburg, SC, plant. You’ll find 523 horses in the 4.4-liter, twin-turbo V8 engine. The X6 produces 553 pound-feet of torque and you can reach 60 mph in 4.1 seconds flat. Probably shouldn’t attempt that with the kids in the car, although they’d love it.
The what? That’s a mouthful, but this MINI gives drivers plenty of power under the hood and a quick response to the pedal to the metal. Its zero-to-60 time is just under 5 seconds and that’s because it has 301 horsepower alongside 331 pound-feet of torque. The engine is turbocharged, 2.0 liters, and four cylinders. This car can go as fast as 155 mph but you’ll have a lot of ‘splaining to do if you get pulled over.
If you’re really looking to have to explain your way out of speeding ticket, custom order the Alpina B7. You can hit the gas the minute the light turns green and reach 60 mph in 3.5 seconds. Oh, yeah! The car can handle speeds up to 205 mph but not a good idea. Under the hood rests a beauty: 4.4 liters, twin-turbo, V8, 600 horsepower, 590 pound-feet of torque. You’ll need about $150,000 to buy this car.
If a $150,000 price tag shocks you, how about almost $400,000? Rolls Royce remains the king of luxury automobiles and the Wraith Black Badge is hand-assembled, as all Rolls Royce vehicles are. This model appeals to a younger crowd with a classic yet sporty appearance. You feel old or stuffy in this automobile. A twin-turbocharged, direct-injected V12 engine provides 603 horses. Wow!
