The Ultimate Driving Experience is one of the most exhilarating, fun, and informative events that we host, said Trudy Hardy, Vice President of Marketing, BMW of North America. This year we are focusing on showcasing BMWs innovations in electromobility and prove that when it comes to electric and hybrid-electric vehicles, driving is believing.

The Ultimate Driving Experience features several immersive experiences including:

Autocross: An exciting, closed-course driving program featuring the all-new BMW X2 Sports Activity Vehicle and the plug-in hybrid electric BMW 530e i Performance. Attendees will be paired with BMWs professional driving instructors for a dynamic experience that highlights BMW technology and safety features and culminates in a pulse-pounding lap around the track.

Teen Driving School: Young drivers are given an introduction to basic driving theory and skills in this BMW Performance Center-derived program. The fully interactive course features both hands-on driving exercises in either a BMW X3 Sports Activity Vehicle or BMW 330i sedan, and classroom education focusing on the consequences of distracted driving. Drivers ages 15-20 with a valid learner's permit or drivers license are eligible.

Street Drives: 20-minute, self-guided test drives in a full range of BMW vehicles.

Acceleration Lane: An exciting, one-of-a-kind demonstration gives consumers the opportunity to test the acceleration of the fully-electric BMW i3s and the all-new BMW M5.

M Car Control Clinic: A detailed instruction of advanced driving theory that allows drivers to get behind the wheel of a powerful BMW M3 or M4 for an adrenaline-filled day of driving with individual instruction from BMW-certified professional driving instructors from the BMW Performance Centers. Drivers will develop a sharper understanding of BMWs responsive handling and performance. The M Car Control Clinic is offered for a fee of $750 per person.

For more information and to register for The BMW Ultimate Driving Experience visit: bmwusa.com/ude or call 800-558-4BMW (4269). Location and dates subject to change.

Hmm. Acceleration lane? Did they have those before? That sounds interesting. Will they really let us drag the m5? Did the autocross in the 540i last year. Super fun and powerful. Really forward to this. See you guys at NYC event.

Nationwide means two locations in the greater NYC area and two in Cali. Oh and DC?

That leaves a whole lot of country in between.

There was no M5 in the acceleration lane when I went this past Saturday. It was really just a small drag strip for the i3....and yes it was as lame as it sounds

I'm headed to the VIP event tonight, so I think we get to drive the M5 there.

The registration for the event does not state that the new M5 will be available for an acceleration type drag race. Only the new i3 will be available.

Cool. Drag racing electric lol. How did the autocross go? Did you use the x2? the fwd x2!! lol. That goes against everything BMW taught us last year about load transfer.

Have fun at the VIP event, let us know how it goes!
