Does it make sense to have such a thing as an “official” spy video? Well, Mazda did it with their Mazda 3 hatchback not too long ago so I guess BMW didn’t want to feel left out! Here is an “official” spy video of the BMW X5 M prototype tearing up a test track, and a BMW M GmbH executive attempting to convince us how a large SUV fits in the BMW M line-up. Well, whatever’s going into the BMW X5 M will be a preview for the powertrain that’s going to be chucked into the next generation F10 BMW M5’s engine bay, so even people who have no interest in really fast SUVs should pay attention to this upcoming model. Check the video out after the jump.
