BMW Abu Dhabi delivers again a unique BMW model. In display, the dealership has an F15 BMW X5 with BMW M Performance Parts.
Based on the M Sports Package, there is a whole lot of tuning accessories that bring a more aggressive appearance to the third-generation X5. The real photos show the BMW X5 xDrive50i in Alpine White that contrast nicely with the black and carbon fiber M parts.
Particularly striking are, next to the black kidneys and the carbon exterior mirror caps, the carbon inserts for front and rear aprons. The M Performance side skirts, the carbon diffuser and the small aero flaps on the outer sides of the rear apron give the X5 a sporty look from all sides.
The V8-powered X5 xDrive50i will use BMW’s latest 4.4-liter TwinPower Turbo V8. It offers improvements in horsepower and torque, while at the same time improving efficiency. The new generation of the V8 engine now puts out 450 hp, a whopping 50 hp more to move less weight! Torque figures are up to at 479 lb-ft, a 29 lb-ft gain.
For the new X5 xDrive50i, 0-100km (0-62mph) now happens in half a second sooner, just 5.0 seconds
All models will be equipped with BMW’s latest 8-speed automatic transmission.
For the first time, the new BMW X5 will be offered with a rear-wheel drive configuration beside the “typical” xDrive setup. The 2014 BMW X5 xDrive50i will start at $69,125. All prices include $925 destination and handling.
