The BMW Abu Dhabi Motors dealership, the same one who showcased the tweaked M135i and 335i gets yet again in our attention. This time, they fitted the M Performance kit on the F15 BMW X5, making it an unique model.
At the exterior, the German SUV gets revised bumpers, side skirts, large air intakes, a revised grille and a rear air diffuser.
All of these parts as well as the side mirror caps are made of lightweight carbon fiber. Under the bonnet sits a 4.4-liter V8 producing 450 horsepower and 650 Nm of torque for a 0-100 km/h sprint in 4,9 seconds.
There’s also an eight-speed automatic gearbox and the company’s xDrive system. Average fuel economy figures are rated at 22,4 mpg US or 10,4 liters/100 km with CO2 emissions of 242 g/km.
All in all, what’s your opinion on BMW Abu Dhabi Motors’ strategy of fitting these models with the M Performance kit?
