Sport Auto brings us the first video of the BMW M550d xDrive. Test driver Christian Gebhardt takes the M Performance Diesel machine from 0 to 250 km/h.

Last month, BMW introduced the first M Performance Diesel products: BMW M550d, X5 M50d and X6 M50d.

The new M Performance TwinPower Turbo technology gives the six-cylinder in-line diesel engine powering the BMW M550d xDrive and BMW M550d xDrive Touring maximum output of 280 kW/381 hp and peak torque of 740 Newton meters (546 lb-ft).

Official figures say the BMW M550d xDrive Sedan goes from 0 to 100 km/h (62 mph) in 4.7 seconds, while the BMW M550d xDrive Touring records 4.9 seconds for the same sprint. Top speed is electronically limited to 250 km/h (155 mph) in both cases.

The Sedan offers fuel economy figures of 6.3 liters per 100 kilometers (44.8 mpg imp) in the EU test cycle, while the Touring achieves 6.4 l/100 km (44.1 mpg imp). CO2 emissions are 165 grams per kilometer for the BMW M550d xDrive Sedan and 169 g/km in the case of the BMW M550d xDrive Touring.

Full review of the M550d will come out in the April edition of the magazine.

    I know I’m wasting my breath, but PLEASE bring this to the states BMW!  We need more diesels over here to represent!

    wow, that thing just pulls and pulls right up to 155mph.  Makes you wonder how fast it could go without the governor.
