WATCH: Wild adventures for BMW in Romania

By Matthew Elliott Monday, 27 March 2017 12:04 0

BRAVING some of the harshest winter weather in Europe, the new BMW X6 M50d Drive passed its icy test with flying colours.

The powerful three litre diesel, which has enjoy critical acclaim since its 2016 release, was in Romania to tackle a high altitude mountain road for a film project.

BMW brought the cars to the wild mountainous region in freezing temperatures below –20C to shoot it along the Transfagarasan highway, once called the most beautiful road in the world by Jeremy Clarkson.

The short film even includes footage of the gorgeous car, which can reach 100kph in 5.2 seconds, gliding along past the infamous Dracula Castle on the snow-covered road. A total of ten Translyvanian locations were covered, a distance of 2.5km, reaching altitudes above 2,000 metres. The resultant masterpiece is called Frozen Romania and is available to view online.

The BMW X 6 M50d handles the ice and extreme conditions with ease. Small turbo-chargers offer extremely sharp response times. Fuel consumption is low and efficient, while a powerful engine output of 381hp can conquer even the half-vertical ice slopes of the Carpathian mountains.
