Holy cow my hand are sweaty just watching the video

The dreaded low tire pressure warning haha

The bucket seats seem so effective, I can't wait to try them on track

Amazing driving. The way he consistently closed the gap during turns hints at how potent a handling machine this car is. He managed to make fast look fun, too, living at the edge of traction at times with apparent ease and comfort.

The looks may be controversial, but the drive certainly isn’t. This is the state of the art of BMW M driving dynamics and it’s seriously impressive. Very interested to see what they manage with the G87 M2.

I enjoyed the video for many reasons, including the fact that I would rather someone else take their G80 M3 on the track to the limit. Knowing that car is good enough to remove half of the tire tread in one turn - if asked - is good enough for me.

Great video! I'm interested in knowing what mount was used for the camera - seemed super solid.

And kudos to the driver - didn't look tense or like he was fighting the car at all. Very smooth.

That was awesome. 5000-7200 rpms is so sweet on the S58 and he really uses that top end in the taller gears. Video makes me super excited for xDrive with all that power. Just power through!

Excellent video & both drivers made those cars dance pretty well at the Ring. The G80 M3 has tons of front end grip & looks like it has more balanced composure at extreme late braking & power on corner exit.

Super impressed with that M2. Wow. That thing is a little rocket. Not sure if both cars were stock. Looks like a blast! Thanks for posting

Both drivers making it look so good on the ring!
Kinda surprised how composed the G80 looked right up to the limit. M division suspension wizardry in action

What display was dialed up? I saw the M Mode, and the tire pressure on the drivers display, but what was on the screen center dash?

This guy is an excellent driver. The M2 was over-braking into and sometimes inside the corners. A modified M2 with suspension and cage should be faster through the corners than a stock G80/G82 but he was slowing down too much.

I always recommend upgrading yourself before upgrading the car.

I would've given him the finger when I passed! j/k

Does anyone know what mods the M2 had? Track mods only or has extra hp?

I can't drive any of these cars at their limit.

They are both wicked fast.

It's called "Sport displays". You can access it by going to: Car - Driving information - Sport displays

Load Alleviation Mode is activated to reduce the strain on the affected tire(s) with a level 2 & 3 CC flag.

That's interesting. I didn't know that.
