MANIC MO­TOR

Leisure Wheels (South Africa) - - GUIDE -

2013 BMW X5 M Com­pared to the ML63 AMG, the BMW X5 M is quite well priced on the sec­ond-hand mar­ket, though it is not as af­ford­able as the Jeep SRT. This is a 2013 model with a full fran­chise ser­vice his­tory and 69 500km on the clock, and it’s priced at R659 900. Of course, pur­chas­ing a used per­for­mance ve­hi­cle is risky, but this ex­am­ple looks to be in great con­di­tion and boasts a bunch of ex­tras. Still, it is worth hav­ing a ve­hi­cle like this thor­oughly checked out be­fore buy­ing. Per­for­mance (and en­gine sound) on the X5 M is great. Its 4.4-litre turbo V8 of­fers 408kW of power and 680Nm of torque. Top speed is 250km/h and ac­cel­er­a­tion is 0–100km/h in 4.7 sec­onds.

THE GOOD: Great per­for­mance and de­cent prac­ti­cal­ity. Priced well.

THE BAD: Fuel and main­te­nance will be ex­pen­sive.
