[VIDEO] G05 X5 full throttle on Monza sand track recreated in Sahara

BIMMERPOST
     Featured on BIMMERPOST.com
BMW Italy recreated the Monza track in the Sahara desert (in Morocco) to show ruggedness of the new BMW X5. Creation of the desert track took over 50 people two weeks. Over 3,500 cubic meters of sand and earth had to be moved to accomplish this.

I liked the video, especially production notes. Most BWW X5 vehicles will not encounter the same road conditions (excluding ones sold in Dubai perhaps). Yet the marketing message "imagine yourself ..." is powerful enough to encourage sales.

I did not notice any observations about the suspension details on the vehicles being driven on the desert course.

This is what i call defiant, ignorance and stupid.
Spending so much money and rubbing this add in people's noses.
BMW make a campaign with providing for the many people in need. Look out there and see how many kids and not only are suffering.
You should be ashamed of these campaigns. People that buy the X5 new are lucky and living in luxury and most are smart to buy the car widouth being determined by such a wasteful add.
Make a hospital, a human care facility, anything to help the people in need, even the planet, put your logo on it than you have my respect.
Showing only profit does not make you great.
Sorry for the negativity.... I just believe is not the time to be wasteful or ignorant.

How is a race around a desert considered to be flaunting money? The whole point of the advertisement is to show the capability of the X5 to encourage buyers... At least that is what I got from it.

I totally agree about not splurging on silly marketing. In this case however they most likely have hired and paid poor locals to build the track... But for sure this was no match for the whole production/filming costs

This is all fine and dandy but I'd like to see at least one full lap with an in-car video to actually see how the car performed. These hard cut, fancy aerial videos only make it look like marketing and don't let the car sell itself.

Talk about feeling guilty for living... It’s a marketing campaign that cost next to nothing. At least it’s an original waste of time.

Because no other company has done advertising for a product that is a levels above basic need or function.

Get a fucking clue. Social outage about a facsimile track reveals more about your faults than BMW's.

I was seriously disappointed as well.

Otherwise it's super cool, what a fun idea.

Here is the thing, BMW of Italy doesn’t care about your “respect”. And that was the whole gist of this rant. Not about needy kids or people suffering, but about you and your ego, and how you hold yourself as some moral authority.

You just made my day, correction, made my month.

I'm going to be laughing at your post, for months.

How did you watch the video, or post your moronic reply?

You could have used the money spent on buying your fancy and unnecessary electronics on a more important social issue.

You should be ashamed of your mindless spending.

Oh, the humanity.

The more I think about it, maybe you have forgotten. BMW does make/build things for people in need.

They built me an X5... because I NEED to trailer my M5 or M2 sometimes.

This isn't Monsanto. This is BMW. They're trying to sell cars. That's marketing. It's not useless at all. And just how sure are you that they (BMW) are not involved in charitable causes?

He is also too thoughtless to understand that marketing sells vehicles.

Selling BMW's allows the company to pay the thousands and thousands of BMW employees this thing called money.

This "money" allows their employees to provide food and shelter to themselves and family (if they are so selfish to have children).. since he reminded all of us there are "children" in need already.
