The Nurburgring track has been closed for a while recently after the BMW M5 Ring-Taxi has been crashed.
Bad news for fans of the BMW M5 Ring-Taxi because just a year and a half after it has been introduced to the famous German track, the powerful sedan has been crashed. According to the guys at BTG, the model in question has met its end at high-speed, on a left corner, after the Karussell, a corner which is often taken at speeds at more than 160 km/h (100 mph). These BMWs are driven by expert drivers, who are qualified to drive M cars on the track with paying passengers. Happily, no one was injured in the incident.
The BMW M5 Ring-Taxi is taking its power from a 4.4 liter V8 bi-turbo engine, just like every other M5 F10 out there, which is producing a total output of 560 HP. The 0 to 100 km/h (62 mph) sprint in the powerful vehicle takes 4.4 seconds, while the 0 to 200 km/h (124 mph) takes 13.0 seconds. Top speed has been electronically limited to 250 km/h (155 mph), but with the M Driver’s Package, it can go up to 305 km/h (190 mph). The average fuel consumption stands at 9.9L / 100km and power is being sent ot the rear-wheel drive through a 7-speed M Double Clutch Transmission Drivelogic.
