While the BMW X6 M50d is the amazing car in its own right, the 1M Coupe has just about reached iconic levels with BMW M fans and the car enthusiasts alike.

It is easy to understand why so many people look up to it. It’s small, agile, relatively lightweight, and packs the wallop thanks to its 340 PS (335 horsepower) 3.0-liter six-shooter, also good for 500 Nm (368 lb-ft) of torque.

In comparison, the diesel-powered BMW X6 M50d is good for 381 PS (375 horsepower) and 740 Nm (545 lb-ft) of torque, accelerating from 0 to 100 km/h (62 mph) in just 5.2 seconds, and despite its total weight of 2,260 kg (4,982 lbs) – approximately 690 kg (1,521 lbs) more than the 1M Coupe.

And yes, that weight difference is truly massive. It is like having eight average-built full-grown men riding inside of the 1M – yet the diesel-powered SUV is slower to 100 km/h by just 0.3 seconds, the truly remarkable achievement.

But what about rolling starts? Reckon they favor the BM 1M or the torquey X6 M50d? You know what to do to find out. Who the hell is out driving the 1M like a 98 year old man? Starting in 3rd gear and shifting at 4K rpm?
