On the Nurburgring, an updated BMW X5 M crossover

Judging by the fact that the prototype of the crossover of the new generation has received less camouflage film and it looks like a fully serial optics and body, we can assume that the presentation of the model is not far off.

The current version of the BMW X5 M “charged” crossover was introduced as early as April 5, 2009, along with the more elegant X6 M. Ten years later, a new (third) generation of the high-performance model was observed on the Nürburgring race track (Germany). sources close to the German brand should be available soon.

Disguise on the prototype has become much less and it looks like the car received its serial body and optics.

The aggressive body of the novelty is not the only reason forcing us to believe that the X5 M is approaching its debut – the prototype seen also had an exhaust system from BMW M and large rims “shod” into narrow tires. It is noteworthy that there is a red emergency button on the center console in case something goes wrong. This is by far our best look at the long-awaited novelty with huge brakes and an interesting rear spoiler on the roof.

Under the hood of the new BMW X5 M, there will be a familiar 4.4-liter twin-turbo V8 engine, connected as standard to the xDrive all-wheel drive system and an 8-speed automatic, all of which have been adapted from the powerful M5. The engine should offer about the same power as the sedan, so expect somewhere around 600 hp. (750 Nm).

BMW will also offer a crossover X5 M in a more productive performance – it is reported that this car will be in many ways similar to the M5 Competition. The power of the sedan was increased to 617 hp.
