Nice!

Unfortunately the recording of the Pre-LCI exhaust note doesn't do it justice. It sounds much better in real life.

Why was he doing one handed power slides ? Doesn't make any sense to me.

Otherwise pretty impressive, especially from a pre-LCI car.

Seems like needs to hone his driving skills a bit more, other than that cool video.
Love the M5

Just shows how much of handful the M5 is to drive. Constant over / understeer.

Good video.

Elaborate on what was wrong with his driving.


I may be wrong correct me if I am, but aren't ring taxi drivers hired because they are considered excellent drivers?

His steering corrections were kinda sketchy. Looked like he could get his arms crossed up easily if the rear came around. Other than that, looked like a blast

That is pretty much how the instructors at the performance center drive as well on the hot lap ride along. They have you sideways most of the time slinging the car around. I think he is doing that on purpose more for excitement than trying to be fast and smooth.

Why is it more impressive from a pre LCI car? LCI cars perform better?

Not sure where he was going with that. I think it depends more on the competition package than the '14 model year. CP features stiffer suspension.
