The first 2014 BMW X5 has rolled off the assembly line in Spartanburg, South Carolina.
The first model, an X5 M50d, was created for a European dealer who will use it to "generate excitement and sales" for the redesigned crossover. To draw maximum attention, it has a Mineral White exterior with a Nappa Mocha leather interior.
On a similar note, the last second-generation X5 (E70) was produced on June 28th. It was a Titanium Silver Metallic X5 xDrive50i which was equipped with the M Sport package and sand beige perforated Nevada leather upholstery. The model will become part of the company's historic car collection and will likely be displayed at the BMW museum in Munich.
