    BMW sets a record for longest drift

    Having previously set the record for longest drift, which was then bested by Toyota, BMW drifted the new M5 for 8 STRAIGHT HOURS, drifting for 232.5 miles. I guess the old adage "Why? Because I can." applies here.

    They even had to refuel the car 5 times, while it was drifting, using another M5. Over to you, Toyota. Smiley

    Glad to see they manufacturers still have a sense of humor in these eco-times... wink

    I wonder how long the tires would have lasted without the help of a wet skidpad?

    About five minutes.  Btw I have seen tire changes while moving as well.
