BMW Group is organizing driver trainings in Namibia, which enables anyone to test the BMW X5 in various situations across South West Africa on a 1,200 kilometer trip. Participants will not only drive, with the help of a roadbook and GPS, through canyons, dried river deltas and across steep mountain passes, but will also experience the African wildlife.
BMW decided to “show off” the impressive, but sometimes overlooked, off-road capabilities of the X5 and launched some videos showing footage of the BMW X5 on an adventure trip in Namibia driving through deep sand, river banks, mountains and on gravel roads.[youtube]http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=XwQhe6ZBeA0[/youtube]
I haven’t had a chance to drive the X5 off-road, but future plans have us going to the Spartanburg Performance Center and take the X5 through the improvised obstacle course.
