Spy Images of the BMW X5 M Leaked
|   Thursday, May 16, 2013
The latest BMW X5 M has been spotted testing at the Nurburgring test track. This fully camouflaged vehicle is the latest in the BMW X Series SUV lineup and a teaser image had been revealed by the company a few weeks ago. The prototype testing at the track was similar to the projected version of the car in many ways. This vehicle however has many differences with the soon to be launched BMW X5.

For starters, there is a host of exterior differences that distinguish this vehicle from the X5.
The X5 M, codenamed the F15 features an aggressive front end, with bigger air inlets which allow more air suction hence keeping the engine cool. Enlarged rims have been used on the vehicle with quad exhaust pipes. Overall, BMW has opted for a mean and bold exterior look and this is the trademark design of the vehicle.

The ride height has been lowered and this makes the X5 M a very ground hugging vehicle. The lower stance also enhances the way the vehicle looks at the road. The headlamps are well complimented by the trademark kidney grille which gives it a very 5 Series based look. The vehicle is powered by a 4.4 liter petrol powered twin turbo charged V8 engine lifted off the M5 and the M6.

BMW claims that this tuned engine will displace close to 560 BHP while the X5 M shares traits of its underpinning with the BMW 5 Series vehicles. Features of the platform are borrowed too and this should give the SUV a very pleasant drive appeal. BMW plans on sending the X5 M to production by the end of the year and the first batch of vehicles should be available across showrooms by the beginning of 2014.

The spy images of the vehicle have rendered a clear view of the exterior of the X5 M although traits of the interior are still a mystery. BMW is not made any official comments on the vehicle and hence details of the interior and mechanical specifications are not known clearly. This vehicle could be showcased within a few months.
