Check out the cool superimposed track map, speed, and G-force displays.

The taxi ride was a gift from a son for his dad's 65th birthday and the driver was Walter Haup, an M5 taxi driver and instructor for M driver training programs.

The lap time isn't nearly what the F10 M5 is capable of as the point of M5 taxi rides is not to achieve the best time possible, but the fastest Nurburgring lap time officially listed for the F10M is 7:55 (lap time list).







Video of the M5 taxi from the outside (during testing, prior to service).

One of the things I must do before I die !!!
