BMW M550d X Drive Road Test - /CHRIS HARRIS ON CARS

BMW M550d X Drive road test. It has more torque than the space shuttle and BMW claims it will do over 40mpg. BMW also says it won't be selling the car in the UK or the US, the places that DRIVE is most commonly viewed. But when something has 3 turbos, you've got to go drive it at 155mph: no?

Neu: BMW M550d - Testfahrt
Frevel oder purer Fahrspaß? Die Geister werden sich am aktuellen 550d von BMW scheiden, haben die Bayern einem werksgetunten M-Modell doch einen Dieselmotor verpasst. Der hat es in Sachen Drehmoment aber in sich.





Alpina B3: Perfect Road Car (Thrashed on Track) -- /CHRIS HARRIS ON CARS
It's a great fusion of speed, stealth and subtlety and it's built for the road. Problem is, it needs to be drifted, so we had to take it to a track.





BMW Engine Plant in China
2017 BMW Brilliance Powertrain Plant, Shenyang, China. The Shenyang location, which comprises the Tiexi and Dadong automotive plants and the engine plant including light-metal foundry, plays an important role in the BMW Group’s global production network. It contributes to the strategy of globally balanced growth, which includes installing production capacity in the respective regional markets. BBA’s two automotive plants, Tiexi and Dadong, already produce five BMW models. With the expansion of its northern section, the Dadong plant will also have room for a sixth model, the new BMW X3. BBA production in Shenyang builds vehicles exclusively for the Chinese market. The Dadong plant in the northeast of the city started production in 2004 and produces today the BMW 5 Series Long-Wheelbase Version. The Tiexi plant in the west of Shenyang went on-stream in 2012 and builds the BMW X1 Long-Wheelbase Version (including a plugin-hybrid version), the BMW 1 Series Sedan, the BMW 2 Series Tourer, the BMW 3 Series Long-Wheelbase Version and the BMW 3 Series Sedan. A key component of the Shenyang location is the engine plant with light-metal foundry – the BMW Group’s only engine production facility outside Europe. The engine plant supplies the two vehicle production sites in Dadong and Tiexi with drive units for locally-produced BMW automobiles. A new high-voltage battery centre, which will assemble high-voltage batteries for plug-in hybrid vehicles, is currently under construction.





Do you need anything more than a BMW 320d? - Chris Harris on Cars
I borrowed a BMW 320d to travel to the Nurburgring for a VLN race. Thought it was time we looked at an 'ordinary' car. The full N24 video in the Aston airs later this week.
