The ultimate driving machine is heading up to a ski resort near you this winter. Yes snow and driving enthusiasts, the 2010 BMW X5 M is the first M model (along with the X6M) to sport all-wheel drive. It should hit your local dealers in late 2009 with pricing starting around $85,000. With a 555 hp, 4.4-liter twin-turbo V8 engine, this is the fastest X5 ever and goes from zero to 60 mph in 4.5 seconds. A six-speed automatic transmission drives all four wheels through BMW’s xDrive all-wheel-drive system. It should shave hours off your drive up to Mammoth or Killington while busting through fresh powder.
