BMW 1M Severe Handling Circuit (video)

We all know how impressive the new 1m Coupe from BMW really is and keen to hint that the E30 is reborn from the matured 3 Series M.

So the guys from Munich have decided to show us the power of pixels over pistons.

As both the car gloriously drifts around the circuit the CGI boys have overlayed an very tight “STARFOX” Area-51 esque circuit.

I want an 1M Coupe but not sure this adds to the attraction anyway enjoy the Video.

And off course some self taken Nurburgring Prototype Photos from 2009.

BMW’s not so secret test facility

Here’s a video from BMW TV showing a “billed” secret testing facility in Miramas in the south of France.

The test facility is the usual gated compound but the track is surrounded by public highway and even google streetview has photographs of this “area-51”.

Anybody with step ladders can gain Photography from this location.

BMW invited a select few M customers, to be exposed to the many variants of the M3 including the M3 GTS and the GT4 Track variants.

Enjoy the Video:-
