2014 BMW X5 Breaks Down On The Nürburgring

Nürburgring is one of the hardest and most extreme race tracks in the world. Once in a while prototypes from different automakers brake down on the ‘Ring or get into an accident.

This time the next-generation BMW X5 broke down with technical problems during a test round on the Nordschleife. The car was taken back to BMW testcenter in Nürburg on a big truck and later pushed into the facility as fast as possible.

Our man with the long lens managed to picture the underneath of the prototype and also part of the interior when they opened the rear door.

The new X5 is rumoured to get a new third row seat and new axles that weigh 150kg less than the current ones. Engine options will include a wide range of six- and eight-cylinder units. Also four-cylinder engines will be available for the first time. A hybrid version could be also in the works, featuring the ActiveHybrid 5′s powertrain.
