Destroying supercars on the track in a F95 BMW X5 M Competition! (VIDEO)

BIMMERPOST
     Featured on BIMMERPOST.com
Great video of the X5M on a race track, along with a GT3RS and a 720S.

The passenger is professional race car driver Archie Hamilton.

Enjoy!

Thanks for the video. I stopped watching Archie awhile ago because i find him fake/annoying but I enjoyed this one. i wonder what suspension mods he was running on the car because that not stock height and it looks like it has spacers.

I haven't had my F95 on the track yet, but I tracked my F85 at NJMP in Millville. It performed amazingly well, especially in the turns. Very impressive for a 5300 pound SUV. I can only imagine how much better the F95 performs on the track, and the video erased any doubt!

Ditto here... I'm a noob still just learning everything. Don't think the F95 will stay as my track day, since its my DD but the wife did hint at a M2 at the dealer.... Maybe just maybe that would be my fun track car. Not looking at going pro just find it a great hobby so far.

Loved the video, but I believe that he pissed his pants 🤣

PS: I would say that was an excellent showing by a SUV, kudos to Bmw

This video was a lot of fun. Reminds me of the two times Steve Dinan took me for ride in my Dinan modified M5. It's crazy fun how much better professional drivers are than us. I loved watching just how relaxed his hands were on the steering wheel. That's something I never mastered and I'm sure it costs time.

I really liked the coke or powdered donut on his nose 46 seconds in. We will assume the latter.

He has a high tempo style! Its good that someone has done a "real life" review of the car though - it really does feel unflappable on the road and good to see it perform well on the track!

Hahah! "I feel like I'm driving a bus." Great video. That's a proper track day. I have only had autocross days that don't play to all the f86 locomotive pulling power when you wind it out through the gears and yet in still represents quite well. Always a quizzical look at a SUV beating most sports cars.

Definitely the driver. The drivers in most of the other cars are driving like grannies. Amazed that some believe the X5M can beat these cars if driven by proper drivers. Don't get me wrong the X5M is a great SUV but it ain't going to beat these cars.

Good catch there.

It will be mentioned on the follow up video about the car.
It is running MSS Spring as I was told by MSS UK.
