Video: 2012 BMW M5 Nurburgring lap

September 8, 2011

BMW has released a full 2012 BMW M5 Nurburgring lap video which included taking a bunch of lucky BMW M enthusiast for a spin around the famous 20.8km Nordschleife circuit.

In the video, race driver Claudia Hurtgen uses the highly-anticipated 2012 BMW M5 to hurtle a group of lucky M-power die-hards around Germany’s Nurburgring race track.

As previously reported, six lucky BMW M enthusiasts were given the chance to drive the new 2012 BMW M5 at the Nurburgring Green Hell in a special BMW M Fly and Drive experience – yep, they got to sample the new 4.4-litre twin-turbo 412kW/680Nm V8 engine first hand (yes, we’re jealous too). The enthusiasts were then taken for a drive of their life by BMW M test drivers.

The video below shows clips of Claudia Hurtgen scaring passengers in the new twin-turbo 2012 BMW M5 at flat-out speeds. Awesome stuff.
