Drag race: BMW X5 M50d versus Range Rover Sport Supercharged V8
In a clash that just ten years ago would have seemed impossible or just
downright silly, we lined up BMW's most powerful diesel SUV against the new
Range Rover Sport, which uses an engine shared with the Jaguar F-Type to
develop an incredible 375kW (502hp).
Both manufacturers claim their cars accelerate from 0-100km/h (0-62mph) in
the same time, so we honestly had no idea which car would win over the
quarter mile drag race.
What we did know is that one of these cars would have a bit more fuel in
the tank at the end of the day.
