Drag race: BMW X5 M50d versus Range Rover Sport Supercharged V8

In a clash that just ten years ago would have seemed impossible or just downright silly, we lined up BMW’s most powerful diesel SUV against the new Range Rover Sport, which uses an engine shared with the Jaguar F-Type to develop an incredible 375kW (502hp).

Both manufacturers claim their cars accelerate from 0-100km/h (0-62mph) in the same time, so we honestly had no idea which car would win over the quarter mile drag race.

What we did know is that one of these cars would have a bit more fuel in the tank at the end of the day.

  23. Hi

  24. m power is great fast

  25. That was BS, the BMW X5 M will destroy that big goofy looking Range Rover. Why didn’t he used the M version in the race, I know why because the Brits didn’t want to get their asses handed to them by the Ultimate Driving Machine!!

  26. diesel never win… never buy a diesel engine suv……..

  27. This video is fucking pointless. You’re putting a x5 m50d which is a 380+ bhp diesel against a 500+ Supercharged PETROL. obviously the RR is going to win. Do it properly and use the actual fucking X5 M.

  28. I would challenge those two cars with my uncle’s golf 7

  40. RR exterior too ugly, they’ve tried to overdue it, looks like the type of car ford or kia would sell

  41. yes I m agree with u toller

  42. Bmw x5 is best

  43. why the hell doesnt the "50" in 50d no longer mean 5liters?

  44. The BMW just looks better, is more than likely a superior drive on the road, feels tighter because it is a BMW and is cheaper.

    Go figure.

    Range Rover Sport has to be the most overrated and overpriced SUV’s in the World.

    Only a chav would buy one.

    Now go and try the X5M vs the cumbersome and overpriced RR 5.0V8. You can not really compare a diesel with a 5.0V8, a bit unfair.

    So X5M Vs Range Rover Sport 5.0V8.

  45. This is the most stupid comparison I’ve ever seen, how can you compare a V8 Supercharged with a diesel, go compare it with real M- Power, and I ‘m sure this man in this video will not be surprised anymore

  46. Spasst hol doch x6 m

  47. Das ist eine Ungerechtigkeit. BMW X5 M ist besser, schneller, sodass RR schwach ist

  48. MX5 would beat that RR shit , even the 3 liter diesel almost did that !!

  49. I have an X5 M50d and to get max performance you have to change manually on the paddles ! By just planting your foot it revs too high & comes out of its max torque! Get someone who knows the X5 M50d to do the drag race & I bet the outcome would be different
