BMW M5: You Can't Do This With An EV!

2018 BMW M5

2018 BMW M5

This carefully choreographed dance between the two cars earned BMW a second Guiness World Record: longest twin vehicle water-assisted drift.

BMW North America shared information about the Guinness World Records this week along with a video of the eight-hour stunt.

This record made by BMW shattered a previous record owned by a Toyota GT86, which drifted for around 144.12kms in July 2014, and again 165.04kms in June 2017.

Ask LaFleur: How'd we get the Parkins Mill name? The stunt gives insanity a whole new definition as BMW attempted to refuel the M5 while the vehicle is drifting on a track.

The M5 was piloted by instructor Johan Schwartz and in order for Schwartz to complete the lengthy drift, his vehicle was refueled on the move, by another BMW M5 fitted with a custom refueling system developed by Detroit Speed. This enabled the BMW M5 to be refuelled during the drift in the same way that fighter jets can refuel in mid-flight - though in this case the operation was performed by hand: a second BMW M5 driven by the Chief Driving Instructor of the BMW Performance Center, Matt Mullins, accompanied the record-breaking M5. "We're excited to have played a part in Johan and BMW recapturing this record".
