The German based automaker BMW has recently released a new video with the M5 F10, in which the powerful model is shown drifting for 51.3 miles.
An impressive achievement has been “scores” by BMW recently, which managed to drift an M5 F10 for a total of 51.278 miles. The model in question was a standard BMW M5, driven by the BMW Performance Center instructor Johan Schwartz. The model was equipped with Continental ultra-high performance tires, 255/30R20 and 295/30R20, front to rear. Power was being sent to the wheels through an M-DCT transmission. Schwartz did 322.5 laps of the 841-foot track, at the BMW Performance Center. For the accomplishment, over 20,000 USD in donations were raised for the company’s charity arm.
As a quick reminder, the outgoing BMW M5 F10 is powered by a 4.4 liter V8 engine which is generating 560 horsepower, between 5.000 and 6.000 rpm, with a peak torque of 502 lb-ft available from 1.500 rpm. The V8 engine is coming with the M TwinPower Turbo and it’s mated to a seven-speed M Double Clutch Transmission Drivelogic with steering wheel mounted paddle shifters. The 0 to 63 mph acceleration takes 4.4 seconds and the top speed has been limited to 155 mph, but with the M Driver’s Package, the car can go up to 190 mph.
