M power for BMW X5 - spy shots

2009-02-26 11:51

BMW might show its new X5 M at next week’s Geneva Motor Show but here is a sneak peek at the newcomer.

These spy shots confirm the forthcoming “M” status of the X5.

Captured during winter weather testing in the snowy north of Europe, the photos show some racy features. As seen on other M-badged BMW vehicles the X5 M in the spy photos features air vents built into the front fenders, and quad-exhaust tailpipes.

The X5 M has an expected power output of around 370kW.

However, there are different rumours about which engine BMW will give the X5 M. It will either be a new twin-turbo 4.4-liter V8 or a 5.0-liter V10 – we expect it to be the V8.
