Powerslide vs Drifting M2 Carthrottle

BIMMERPOST
     Featured on BIMMERPOST.com
The video shows the beau-ti-ful LBB M2 at its finest angle(a tad sideways), and they show it more than enough



Cheers

Love it when the video authors aren't afraid to leave the mistakes in the final cut. Style out with a donut! Ha

Definitely!! That reg is the UK press car... been abused by a LOT of people. On the flip side it will have been VERY WELL looked after by the BMW HO mechanics so probably better maintained than your car you a local dealer.

Drifting = using max engine power to achieve minimum speed.

And this one, old 911 at Spa, much faster than the rest but still sideways. Why? Because otherwise he 'd end up in many understeer situtations, (old)911s do that, it's in their genes. So this is the fastest way in this case.

And last but not least, some footage of Kenny Bräck in a GT40 at Goodwood and an interview with him, he's explaining his driving/drifting style.....

FWIW BMW NA offered me one of their 1M press cars and told me at the outset that it would not qualify for extended warranty or for Certified Pre Owned regardless of how long I kept it. I passed since I have seen how these cars get used.

Just for curiosity, who gets to sell the press cars and the Performance Driving School cars in the US? They told me at PDC in Spartanburg that when those were sold, their use was definitely disclosed. On a side note, I purchased an BMWNA executive demo in the past. It was available at auction only to BMW dealers and then I purchased it from the dealer as the first owner on the title.
