Last weekend on a cold but dry Spring morning and a local shoot with an owner of a very rare BMW X5, this one sporting a 4.6 litre V8 engine. Country setting with a very handy over flowing river to provide a few action shots of the car in action...
The X5 sport model, badged 4.6is was released in 2001. The 4.6 was equipped with the V8 engine, made 340 hp and was available in 4 colors (black, imola red, estoril blue, and titanium silver). It featured 20 inch wheels that were fitted over larger brakes than the stock X5. It also had additional rear fender flares along with different front and rear bumpers.

The car for its age was in immaculate condition, these SUVs over the years have taken over as the prime gamily car, taking sales away from estate cars and also luxury saloons and this 4.6 model sat below the M range derivative, but sporting that V8 lump made it a rapid bit of kit. The full feature will be published in BMW Car magazine later this year.
