Agreed, but Audi and Benz:Same story.

You guys in Europe have a whole different level of motorsporting.
As evidenced @ 2:57, someone woke up one day and said "Honey, see ya, today I will track my X5".
I love it.

Dunno if those testmules are one and the same car, I didn't check their licenceplates, but @ 2mins 40s, that's not X drive/AWD for sure. Just rwd.

I thought I read somewhere that the 5 series GT was pretty much a sales flop here in the US?

What an awesome video! The driver really pushed the car to the limit!!!

He nearly lost it a few times but overall a great job.

The X5 really made me laugh!

Whats the point of having a GT and a wagon?I can understand the availability of 5gt in NA as we don't have the wagon[though that was not the intended purpose of BMW]

Personally I like the 5GT. Its a different breed of automobile keeping practicality and luxury in mind.the second row seating is awesome unlike the SUV's[including X5] where seating in the second row is like sitting on a toilet.

You have no idea... I've seen some strange things at the Ring; the Smart was my personal favorite.
I've been told that even buses have tried the Green Hell.

On Touristenfahrten anything is posible.

Come to think of it, my dad told me, in the late 60s or so when I wasn't even born, my parents went to the Eifel, the beautiful aera the Ring is situated, for a small vacation. By car.
So my dad did a lap at the Ring. Just sightseeing and stuff.
Weapon of choice: Volkswagen Beetle with less than 40BHP LOL.
