This is the closest we've come to a McLaren SUV

McLaren is adamant that it will never build an SUV, but hop back to 2000 and you'll find a McLaren-engined beast that set a blistering time around the Nürburgring. It didn't strictly have a McLaren badge, but its powerplant was something truly special.

  • Supercar companies joining the suv bandwagons is quite embarrassing and pathetic tbh. Yes they had bigger market and profits rather than premium brand but somehow suv that had big power is kinda scary to drive.

  • I'm usually offended by performance SUVs but I'd delightly take this one. There's just something so cool about manufacturers randomly shoving random engines into random cars. It's not the kind of thing that sells, but it's a cool thing to do.

  • The F1 is a car of the 90th. But since about 2000 Mercedes owned about 30% of McLaren; the SLR was there first project. So I'm quite sure there will never be a McLaren Car with a BMW-Engine anymore. But maybe with a Mercedes-AMG-Engine, could be great!

  • Maclaren release about 5 cars a week yet they won't make and SUV. Probably the biggest seller in the car market. I think MCL should focus on quality rather than churning anyway.

  • SUVs from manufacturers which traditionally made pure bred sports cars (such as lambo or aston) end up diluting their brand image. Yes, there's a small gap in the market for exotic SUV's and they can provide a decent amount of profit (or save the company from bankruptcy in Porches' case), but it really ruins the brands cool factor.

  • "McLaren-engined beast . . ."?? *BMW* put their own V12 *BMW* engine in a *BMW.* This could have been equally misleading by titling the video, "This is the closest we've come to a BMW McLaren F1". Some pseudo self-deprecation would go a long way to injecting a much needed modicum of humour into this guy's disturbingly sincere CBeebies presentation style.

  • Thats quite the stretch there to call it close to a Mclaren SUV isn't it? They have related engines, by that measure the Rover 75 is near enough a four door Zonda because they the same radios, the Zonda isn't Rovers achievement and the LM isn't McLarens. Big respect for BMWs work but McLaren did nothing for it.

  • what an utterly disappointing video!! This x5 has nothing to do with McLaren. The engine was a BMW engine, McLaren is incapable of producing an engine. They just put McLaren name in the video to gain more view. Noone cares if this prototype SUV had the basic same engine of the F1 McLaren, as it was a Bmw engine. Also, don't compare a protoype vehicle with road-going cars (lap time comparison in Nurburgring)
