Spy Shots: BMW X5 ‘M’ in the works

These latest spy shots indicate that BMW is working on a new, even higher-performance version of its BMW X5 SUV. Currently, the BMW X5’s range topping engine is a 4.8 liter V8 engine that produces 350 horsepower.

According to WorldCarFans, the X5 in this picture is most likely equipped with the 6.0 liter V12 engine found in the 760i that produces 438 horsepower. As you can see in the pictures, this BMW X5 has huge air intakes with front as well as wide exhaust tail pipes in the back. Both of these features indicate a larger and more powerful engine.

BMW has previously fitted the X5 with a V12 engine before with the X5 LeMans that accelerated from 0-62mph in 4.7 seconds.
