The Ultimate Driving Machine® needs the ultimate testing ground—one like the Nürburgring, the most challenging racetrack in the world.
Spanning 16.1 miles, the Nürburgring features 33 left turns and 40 right turns that pass through the village of Nürburg, Germany, in the Eifel Mountains. The Nürburgring consists of a long North loop track that was built in the 1920s and a Grand Prix racetrack that was constructed in 1984. The track hosts several major international racing events each year.
In addition to a racing venue, the Nürburgring is one of the most famous testing sites for the world’s best automobiles. Every BMW faces the Nordschleife, which is often referred to as “The Green Hell.” Auto experts estimate that 100 laps on the track are equivalent to the entire life of a vehicle.
BMW vehicles like the X5 consistently take on this daunting course with great success. If a car can conquer the Nürburgring, it can handle just about any road to be found.
Six lucky BMW enthusiasts recently had the opportunity of a lifetime: They test drove the new BMW M5 on the Nürburgring. To get an up close and personal look at their experience, visit the official BMW YouTube page at www.youtube.com/BMWUSA.
After tackling the Nürburgring, rest assured that your BMW is well equipped to handle every twist and turn of your life’s journey.
