It allows a particularly sporty style of motoring because it minimises the risk of the drive wheels spinning on one side when taking a narrow bend quickly.

Conventional differential locks measure the difference in torque on the two drive wheels: in contrast, the new BMW system operates an axial piston pump which reacts to the difference in speed between the wheels.
