BMW X5 gets twin-turbo V8
And talking about gas price and fuel consumption... BMW is working on a more powerful version of its X5 SUV powered by a twin-turbo V8 engine (same as in the X6). Official debut will be made next year at the Geneva motor show.
The most powerful version in the current line-up is the 4.8i powered by a 355bhp 4.8-litre V8 that will rocket the BMW to 60mph in 6.5 seconds and on to 152mph.
The new version will hit a top speed of 155 mph and will make the 0 to 60 mph sprint in 5.5 seconds.
The UK pricing for the future X5 will be of £60,000. It will have a fuel consumption of 23mpg on the combined cycle and has a CO2 posting of around 300g/km.
