BMW M Cars get tri-turbo diesel – BBC Top Gear

Posted By on January 26, 2012

Hey BMW … how about bringing those all-wheel drive tri-turbo M diesels over to the U.S.

BMW M550d

BMW’s M Division may have started out with a raspy, fighty little petrol 3 Series, but today it stands for something more. Much more. Say hello to the birth of the 3.0-litre triple-turbo straight six diesel M car.

BMW recently revealed its intention to create a new range of M-tuned cars that would sit between the standard range and the ‘proper’ M cars, and today we find out that on launch, the brand will offer a four-wheel-drive BMW M550d and M550d Touring, a BMW X5 M50d and a BMW X6 M50d.
