2018 BMW M5 Sets Two World Records for Drifting
The two records include “greatest distance vehicle drift in 8 hours” and “longest twin vehicle drift (water assisted).”
The 2018 BMW M5 has created two world records for drifting and made it look fun and easy. The two records include “greatest distance vehicle drift in 8 hours” and “longest twin vehicle drift (water-assisted).” The first record is made by BMW driving instructor Johan Schwartz by constantly drifting the new M5 for eight hours and 232.5 miles around a skid pad. By doing this, he broke his old record by 143 miles which he first set in 2013.
The other record (1 hour/49.25 miles) was set in the process as the drift was continuous with no stopping for fueling. And that’s an exciting part as BMW set up a car-to-car refueling system with another M5 go side by side for refueling, same as we see in fighter jets.
The luxury sports 2018 BMW M5 featuring all-wheel-drive and active locking differential has the capability to be driving solely on the rear axle. The sports sedan houses a 4.4-liter twin-turbo V8 with 600 horsepower and 553 pound-feet of torque.
