BMW drifts into record books

Auto Today - - Update! -

THE NEW BMW M5 has been used to set a Guin­ness World Record, for the longest drift dis­tance in eight hours. Ob­vi­ously, the rear-wheel drive mode in the new M5 works as ad­ver­tised. The new car was held side­ways by Dan­ish rac­ing driver Jo­han Schwartz on a wet-sur­faced skid pad for 374km to dec­i­mate the ear­lier record of 144km, set in 2014 in a Toy­ota GT86. An old­er­gen M5 was drifted along­side the new one, while the car was re­fu­elled jet-fighter style.
