    Apparently BMW put a V12 into an X5

    https://www.hotcars.com/heres-what-h...-v12-in-an-x5/

    Since the beginning of time, engineers just love to push boundaries, and taking a race spec V12 engine from a McLaren F1 race-car and cramming it under the hood of a BMW X5 is definitely one of them. But in 2000, that’s exactly what the guys at BMW’s M division did.
    And what’s really funny is that the original Le Mans race car, which used this engine, had to be throttled down to 570 hp to meet the race regulations of the time. So the X5 Le Mans SUV is actually packing more power than the McLaren F1 did when it was on the circuits! BMW engineers were able to unleash its full potential by getting rid of the engine's air restrictors and fitting a bespoke exhaust system, thereby giving the V12 the opportunity to fully breathe.

    Holy Franken-Bimmer! And only +7 hp over an S54 M Roadster?? Man those 90s V12s were weak! (Or maybe the S54 is just that amazing!)

    That's a M series engine, not S series. If you compare the S version V12 it made up to 900hp depending on the exact variant.
