Re-creation of iconic track reflects the campaign concept of 'Will and Power'

M&C Saatchi Milan Recreates Monza Race Track in Sahara Desert for BMW X5 Launch
With a 5793 metre long circuit through the sands and rocks of the Sahara, Monza’s historic race track comes to life in the heart of the desert.

More than 40 people, including engineers, surveyors, technicians and racers, have worked hard to faithfully reproduce a life-size replica of every turn, every straight, every chicane, using the original track’s turning circles and distances. This monumental effort reflects the spirit of the campaign’s concept 'Volere e Potere' (or 'Will and Power'), culminating with an unprecedented challenge: to drive the new BMW X5 in one of the planet’s most hostile environments, just as you would at the Monza race track. Such spectacular statement shows that today, the pleasure of driving a BMW also extends off-road, due to the innovative xOffroad package on the new BMW X5. This is a car that, like any true leader, can achieve any objective, and is not afraid to prove it.


“‘Volere e Potere’ means always aiming for higher and more ambitious goals,” say Vincenzo Gasbarro and Luca Scotto di Carlo, M&C Saatchi’s creative partners. “It means knowing that nothing is unattainable, with sufficient determination and willpower. But we know that actions speak louder than words, and what could be better than the new BMW X5 to prove our point? In true M&C Saatchi style, we focused on a simple, immediate idea: taking an international icon of performance and sportsmanship - the Monza race track - and relocating it where only a BMW X5 can hope to succeed, ensuring the utmost driving pleasure.”

In short, the perfect demonstration of both 'Will' and 'Power'.

For the occasion, the new BMW X5, in collaboration with We Are Social, reached the 'Monza, Sahara' track via a tour of Europe, before landing in the impervious Moroccan desert of Merzouga. The project, developed by M&C Saatchi and produced by Utopia, will be online from November 12th on x5.bmw.it and on the brand’s social media channels, supported by a special display campaign.
