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.

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
