BMW's new X5 is set to be revealed officially this week. But does that mean you can't see it yet? Hells no. First, AutoWeek appears to have again negotiated a pre-release shot, considering they seem to have a Web exclusive on the above. (Oh wait, not any more.) But you want to see the whole bit, no? Correct. For that, we turn to our mates at Carscoop, who never met an embargo they didn't regard like a meth-addled silverback gorilla at a Harry and David cheese tasting.
In regards to the engine range, the new Bavarian SUV will be presented at the Paris Motor Show with two new petrol engines, the 265 Hp 3.0 6cylinder (0 to 100 km/h in 8,3 sec, top speed 216 km/h) and the 367 4.8 V8 (0 to 100 km/h in 6,5 sec, top speed 240 km/h) and one diesel, the highly acclaimed, 272 Hp 3.0 twin-turbo 6cylinder (0 to 100 km/h in 8,1 sec, top speed 225 km/h). The engine range is expected to grow rapidly after the car starts its career in Europe and the USA in the beginning of 2007 .
Go get 'em, kids. [UPDATE: Our European connection dropped off the suitcase. Photos below.]
