BMW M5 Ring Taxi. The Green Hell

BMW has used its http://www.bmw.tv site and its YouTube channel to release a new promotional video for the BMW M5 Ring Taxi. This is the car that was famously piloted by Sabine. For those that don't know, the ring taxi is basicly a roller coaster ride around the Nurburring. You pay a fee, and a professional BMW driver will take you out in an M5 and show you the time of your life. The cost is steep, but well worth it...

What a job!

My dad went on something similar via AMG years ago. He told me he got out of the car shaking and nauseous.

When you watch how these cars are driven, it makes you realize how dynamic ///M cars are and how the general driver never really "exploits" the full potential of the these cars!

Probably 80% of buyers of high performance cars do not even know what it will "really" do.

Maybe more.

( A lap in the BMW Ring-Taxi costs €195. Up to three persons can join for this ride. The rides are offered from March to November. In the “Book your ride” section of this website, you can select your individual favourite date. We recommend booking your ride right after receiving your ticket. )

Cheap! Its a great experience especially if you get in the car with sabine schmidt.

Greetz. me @ ring last month. >>>

That is exactly what my dad said about the AMG driver.

" BRAAAKE" While stomping on the passenger floor board I am sure. Trying to get his imaginary pedal to work properly.
