The F10 BMW M5 is as close to a halo car as the Bavarians got this year and it’s now wonder, it seems like there’s no situation where it can’t be brilliant.
Appearances can be deceiving so BMW’s M Division have decided to push the 2012 M5 trough another improbable test and, while at it, make a video of the whole thing.
In getting with the holiday spirits, the M Division decided to give an illustrator quite the boring assignment, even suggesting he’d make a cliche drawing.
The result would be a BMW M division Christmas card. That was kind of the plan, but the setup isn’t as predictable as it seems.
Since the new BMW M5 was to be involved somehow, the decision came in that this new Christmas card would be drawn up in the car, while moving at great speed.
Thus, the video we now have features Swiss illustrator Gavin Patterson in the passenger seat of a furiously driven F10 BMW M5.
Meanwhile, at the wheel, we find BMW M division’s Urs Inauen. The most important thing on his resume is that he’s a precision driver for the Germans.
The plan was very ambitious and even though BMW selected some very capable men at their job, the mix of gs and excitement thrown around by the M5 said a lot.
BMW M Division’s Christmas card looks more like abstract art than something you’d put under the Christmas tree. It seems like 560 horsepower and sideways action is not the best way to draw.
