Crazy Fast CTS-V blows engine at high speed
This is a high 9 second CTS-V. You can see it has engine problems and
starts to sputter and blow smoke at the end of the track.
It ended up on a flatbed and dumped oil all over the track. At least the
car didn't loose control.
2015 BMW X5M vs. 2014 Mercedes-Benz GL63 AMG
2015 BMW X5 xDrive35i
A six-cylinder smoothie that makes a case for less is more.
Value is a key element in automotive purchase decisions, but its
definition varies considerably according to the buyer’s proclivities,
which can lead to some interesting arithmetic. Consider the new BMW X5. If
power absolutely rules your gotta-have-it list of traits, the choice is
pretty simple: You need the X5 xDrive50i, with its 445-hp, 4.4-liter
twin-turbo V-8, which moves the
2.5-plus-ton SUV from 0-to-60 mph in a darn snappy 4.3 seconds. It’s the
hottest X5 you can buy, at least until a next-gen M version comes along.
But if your buyer’s brain operates on a system of checks and balances,
you’ll be feeding other factors into the equation. For example: the base
price of the X5 xDrive50i—$69,125—is $13,100 north of the base for the
X5 xDrive35i. The 35i is propelled by a turbocharged inline-six that generates 300 horsepower and 300 lb-ft
of torque. That means you’d be paying $6550 for each of the 50i’s
additional cylinders and a little over $90 for each additional pony.
How about the 0-to-60 dash? The 35i does it in 6.0 seconds, not quite
enough to induce brownouts, but respectable. Shaving 1.7 seconds off that
time with the 50i costs a little under 1000 bucks per 10th.
The Hurry Games
It’s rare for us to advocate going a little slower, but in vehicles such
as this, the need for haste is offset by the cost-to-benefit ratio. Why
spend a lot of dough to propel a heavy brick to 60 mph in less than five
seconds, when you can achieve that in something smaller and handier for
considerably less? And this doesn’t even include fuel-economy (although
the term is almost oxymoronic in the SUV realm). The X5 50i we tested
recently was EPA-rated for 14 mpg city and 22 highway, and we recorded 15
mpg in our travels. Our X5 35i test SUV is rated 18/27, and we achieved 21
mpg—burning premium fuel in both.
We also give high marks to this X5’s dark décor compared with the
ivory-colored interior of our X5 50i test vehicle. BMW calls this a Sports
Activity Vehicle, and many sports involve mud, grass, grease, oil, and
other gooey stuff that doesn’t look good on light-colored upholstery.
However, besides Active Steering, our test vehicle included a Luxury Line
package (sport steering wheel, roof rails, 19-inch wheels, $1700); the
Driver Assistance package (rearview camera, head-up display, $1400); the
Driver Assistance Plus (blind-spot detection, active cruise control with
stop and go, active drive assist, 360-degree surround view, $1900); the
Lighting package (full LED lights, automatic high beams, $1900); the
Premium package (keyless entry, auto door closures, satellite radio,
$2700); a Cold Weather package (heated steering wheel, heated rear seats,
retractable headlight washers, $550); and white metallic paint, $550.
Including other minor items, the option grand total came to $14,950. At
$70,975, the X5 xDrive35i begins to look pricey. But that’s only slightly
higher than the base price for the X5 xDrive50i. So we’re back to the
checks and balances. Unless your need for speed is very compelling, the
xDrive35i makes a strong case for (relative) value versus velocity
2014 Mercedes-Benz GL63 AMG
Nothing that sounds this good could be wrong.
The introduction of the 550-hp GL63 AMG last summer sparked a debate in
our business about whether this vehicle is proof that AMG has lost its
To make this comparatively demure GL into an AMG, Mercedes drops in its
talented twin-turbocharged 5.5-liter
V-8, upgrades the transmission and all-wheel-drive system, and fits a
sportier adjustable suspension. The AMG gets larger front brakes tucked
inside its 21-inch wheels as well as a couple of cosmetic flourishes such
as new front and rear fascias and fender flares. Sport seats fitted up
front mean that, if you were so inclined, you could call this a “chairs
and flares” package. We wouldn’t.
In daily use, the experience of the GL63 is much like that of the regular
GL, only more urgent. Under light load, a reassuring rumble reminds
occupants that the GL63 has 550 horsepower, which is 20 more
than a Porsche 911 turbo S and probably
not something you want to mention to the other parents in your car-pool
group. Under full throttle, a 4.8-second 0-to-60 time reminds you that the
GL63 weighs 5812 pounds. Most vehicles with that much stonk weigh less.
Two questions keep gnawing at us. First, who needs this kind of vehicle?
Not many people. Mercedes says that just 2 percent of GL buyers will opt
for the GL63. As for the second question, it has nothing to do with whether
AMG should be hot-rodding SUVs. Of course it should. The SUV is the luxury
sedan of the modern day. No, our second question is this: Does 13 mpg
qualify as retro?

GT-R AMS Alpha 12+ / Turbo Drive on the track Moscow Raceway
Видео записано по пути обратно с трека.
Удивительно крепкая машина оказалась,
что даже на треке погоняла и туда-обратно
своим ходом доехала.
Это время можно значительно улучшить,
если не будет "потока" на треке (он был
всегда и приходилось все время обгонять
машины), сделать для трека сход-развал и
"прикататься" к нему (на такой
конфигурации впервые ездил).

2015 BMW X5 M on racetrack
The new M TwinPower turbo engine for the
BMW X5 M and BMW X6 M is the most powerful unit ever developed by BMW for
an all-wheel-drive vehicle. Boasting innovative M TwinPower turbo technology with a pair of TwinScroll turbochargers, cross-bank Exhaust manifolds, VALVETRONIC and High
Precision Direct Petrol Injection, the 4.4-litre V8 produces maximum output
of 423 kW/575 hp between 6,000 and 6,500 rpm. That represents a four per
cent increase over the predecessor models. The step up is even clearer when
it comes to the power development of the new engine. Peak torque has been
Boosted by 70 Nm (52 lb-ft), which
equates to a rise of 10 per cent. Its 750 Nm (553 lb-ft) can be enjoyed
across a broad rev range between 2,200 and 5,000 rpm.
At the same time, fuel consumption of the new BMW X5 M and BMW X6 M in the
EU cycle has been cut by 20 per cent – from 13.9 l/100 km(20.3 mpg imp)
to 11.1 l/100 km (25.5 mpg imp). CO2 emissions are likewise down by more
than 20 per cent, to 258 g/km. The two models accelerate from 0 to 100 km/h
(62 mph) in 4.2 seconds through the standard eight- speed M Steptronic
transmission with Drivelogic. Top speed is limited to 250 km/h (155 mph).
With their striking use of forms, the new BMW X5 M clearly flag up their
sporting ambitions. With their exteriors painted fully in body colour, both
models cut a low-slung figure on the road, while mixed tyres showcase their
sporty track width and lend extra credence to their premium perception.
Additional exterior design modifications, moreover, elevate the
M models even further than before from the standard BMW X5. Large air
intakes at the front end, side gills with a model badge and Air Breathers,
signature M exterior mirrors in twin-stalk style, a typically M
four-tailpipe Exhaust system give them
a standalone look M fans will immediately recognise. Setting the seal on
this exclusive range of features are M-specific 20-inch light-alloy wheels
with mixed tyres or forged 21-inch M light-alloy wheels (optional).
The high-quality interior impresses with its well-thought-through
combination of sporty features, exclusive materials and flawless
workmanship. The M instrument cluster, M leather steering wheel with
aluminium gearshift paddles and M gearshift lever – which works in the
same way as the familiar M Double Clutch Transmission – are complemented
by electrically operated M sports seats for the driver and front passenger,
an M driver’s footrest and the optional Head-Up Display which, in
addition to the standard system, also includes an M-specific display with
gear indicator, rev band and shift lights.
New BMW X5 M customers also have the choice between various options
exclusive to the M models, such as 21-inch M light-alloy wheels, Merino
full-leather trim and M multifunction seats. And there’s also a choice of
two new and exclusive M paint finishes.

2014 BMW X5 vs Volvo XC60 Mashup Drag Race: Super-Turbo vs Turbo-Turbo
( http://www.TFLcar.com ) The 2014 BMW X5 and the 2015 Volvo XC60 T6 are
both tall crossovers that don't compete against each other but they are
similar in one very important way: they both use 2X the usual amount of
forced induction. In plain English that means that the 2014 BMW X5 is twim
turbocharged while the Volvo is Super turbocharged. So which is faster in a straight line. In a fun TFLcar
drag race we decided to pit the two tall crossovers against each other to
see if the super-turbo or the turbo-turbo is

Nissan GTR Tuned vs. BMW X5M Tuned - World 's Faster Tune Only ? - 11.99 @ 114 mph - Road Test TV
http://www.roadtesttv.com/ A 2011 BMW X5M with only a RENNtech tune runs
11.99 @ 114 mph. To our knowledge, this RENNtech X5M is the first "tune
only" X5M to run the quarter mile in the 11s. The RENNtech X5M was running
on stock runflats with stock Exhaust
and airboxes. The 2010 Nissan GTR in the left lane was tuned by HP Logic
has a midpipe and was running on Michelin PS2s.
