BMW M5 Diesel in the Works? Leaked Document Reveals M550dX Model

Over the last few years, diesel technology has taken a huge leap in technology. So much so, that a diesel powered car is the preferred choice of weapon for any endurance race.

With their success on the track being recognized, it's only a matter of time before fast diesels make their way into road cars, and BMW seems to be jumping at that.

According a leaked document, BMW is preparing to offer a model that will wear the badge: M550dX. While not a true M model, it also hints that this is more than just an M-Sport package. Instead, it will likely be the first ever diesel designed by BMW's M performance division.

As the name suggests, it will be all-wheel drive, and will likely use the new 3.0-liter, triple turbo-charged (yes, you read right) motor that produces 395-hp.

There is no confirmation from BMW at this point, but the possibilities certainly are exciting. Americans have never been fond of diesel passenger cars, but slap a Roundel on the front and an M badge on the back and it's sure to change more than a few minds.
