June 27, 2011 thamzn No Comments
BMW Blogreports that the new Nürburgring taxi has been unveiled. They have photographic proof to the effect too. The new car is of course another M5, the new one in fact. What’s a Nürburgring taxi you may want to know? Like the name says, it carries people. But instead of rushing them around town, it takes them on an adrenalin rush around the famed 20.8km Nürburgring Nordschleife race track, considered by many to be the most gruelling track in the world.
The new M5 was unveiled a couple of weeks ago and it has a 4.4-litre twin turbo V8 engine producing 412kW and 680Nm of torque, with a claimed 0 – 100km/h time of 4.4 seconds. Well-known driver Sabine Schmitz was the pilot behind the old ‘Ring taxi, but she has since moved on to drive a Porsche. The new driver is yet to be revealed.
