2010 BMW X5 M Review


Think of it as a concept car a fully functional concept car. It's the answer to a "what if" question. As in, "what if you could make an SUV drive like a sports car?"

We are, of course, talking about the BMW X5 M the absurdly powerful M-tuned version of the popular luxury SUV. And while there are numerous modifications to help make it a driver's SUV (yes, such a thing does exist), at the heart of the package is a twin-turbo 4.4-liter V8 with an outrageous 555-hp and 501 ft-lbs of torque.

We'll agree that the whole idea of the X5 M is ridiculous, but we're not going to debate that issue. The reality is, there's a market for vehicles like this and considering Porsche has been selling the Cayenne Turbo for almost a decade, it's surprising BMW took so long to build this off-road bahn burner. Sure, Mercedes has the ML63, but that's just not in the same league as the tossable X5 M.

I saw one up close and personal.....at the 'Ring. Picture a BIG BEAR on 'roids, Two turbos sticking out of the nostrils and Michelin Pilot sport cups for paws, and like the article says....handling like a car, BECAUSE it handled like one. I was pumping up past 135 MPH after rolling past flugplatz and it came screaming at me where I slowed down in shock and disbelief. I would want to drive one also!!!!!



How do I spell relief?!?!?!
NO MORE DAMN SNOW!!!!!!
