bmw x6 series

 

This severely modified BMW X6 with “swollen” fenders and carbon fiber elements is specifically built for a more aerodynamic shape, extra speed and maneuverability. This design is more common in WRCC races. But have you ever wondered how the crew members manage to change the wheels within seconds only? This animation proves it, yet you probably ask yourself if the lug nuts are in the same positions. The truth is that they are, but they are mounted differently. Instead of being screwed, they are actually glued onto the rims. Therefore, you can forget about threading them. Instead, an air wrench will do the trick.
