The technology
The BMW X5 Rally Raid was developed for racing within 12 months. The vehicle has been constructed in almost authentic X5-Format.
The fibreglass body conceals state of the art racing technology as well as numerous innovations.
The four-wheel drive BMW X5s with approximately 270HP variable twin turbo engines have a technically complex construction of latticed tubular space frames as a chassis. The low fuel consumption of the BMW three-litre six-cylinder engine is a distinct advantage in comparison to the gasoline engines of the competitors. This fact follows a comparatively small tank possible and provides a weight advantage of up to 200 kg during the long African stages.
