Mercedes-Benz ML 63 AMG vs BMW X6 M Doesn't End Well

Some people might berate us for saying it, but this is more than just a stereotype with no base whatsoever. The fact that quite a large amount of BMW drivers are seen as some of the most annoying people on the road is a given in pretty much any culture out there.

We're not the only ones saying it either, as recent studies conducted in both the United Kingdom and the United States have shown that BMW drivers are pretty much the most easy to hate on traffic participants in at least two different parts of the world.

Sure, it's not like it's BMW's fault for this situation, as they don't specifically target cars for all the morons of the planet, but the fact remains: most rage incidents and certain lawlessness acts behind the wheel are more likely to happen because of someone driving a BMW.

Which gets us to the following short video, where a BMW X6 M in a blue chrome vinyl wrap (need we say more?) is appearing to race against a Mercedes-Benz ML 63 AMG from the previous generation (W164) on a public road somewhere in Eastern Europe, with our bet being that it's somewhere in Russia.

Getting past the fact that the both drivers are at fault for driving at those speeds on a public road and that the ML 63 AMG is obviously a bit underpowered for a head-to-head race, the moral of video is a bit different than expected.

After the 555 hp BMW X6 M has the jump on the old 510 hp Mercedes-Benz ML 63 AMG (W164), its driver unexpectedly brakes and attempts a ridiculous 180 degree turn for some unknown reason.

Keep in mind that all of the above happens while the ML 63 AMG is hot on its tail, so the level of stupidity exhibited by the BMW driver is probably a bit higher than what regular stereotypes might say.

All in all, the resulting crash could have ended a bit worse than it did, but the simple fact that it happened says a lot about the guy - or gal - driving the X6.
