BMW xDrive Mountain Challenge Puts Champs in the Snow

Celebrity

Ryder Cup golfer Martin Kaymer meets DTM champ Bruno Spengler on an Austrian ski hill for a little game of "anything you can do, I can do better".

With snow falling around the world, BMW is keen to show off its xDrive traction system. AWD can, for many buyers, make the difference between buying a given car or going to the competition, so the Bavarian automaker has begun fitting xDrive to a wide range of its vehicles, including the M550d and 6 Series coupe. Yesterday we brought you a little clip of an X6 pulling a snowcat up a ski hill in Switzerland, but now BMW has driven eastward into Austria for another demonstration.

This time it recruited Ryder Cup golfer Martin Kaymer and DTM racer Bruno Spengler for a Top Gear-style competition, racing up and down snowy hills and driving a golf ball through a blizzard. The clip is in German, but if you liked how Mercedes put David Coulthard and Adam Scott together for that SLS demo, this one's worth a watch, too.
