Who doesn’t love the throaty sound of a powerful engine? Revving its way into our hearts and minds, the BMW M4 is a stunning machine, and the latest offering from the German automobile manufacturer.
How do you do justice to a machine as awesome and powerful as the BMW M4? I think that ad nailed it perfectly. It’s an awe-inspiring spectacle to see a sports car drifting on a racetrack, on an aircraft carrier.
The M4 is unveiled in a stunning fashion as seen above. Speeding around a racetrack on an aircraft carrier only inches away from the edge. It’s impossible to not have your heart in your throat while watching this incredible performance.
There has been some debate about whether or not the ad is an actual footage or CG trickery. The video looks very real, so it’s hard to say one way or the other. But it’s unlikely that the footage is untouched considering the massive cost of running and/or buying an aircraft carrier. That being said, it doesn’t really matter if it’s real or computer generated. It’s an awesome video. Ultimate racetrack indeed!
The M4’s heart is the M-tuned S55B30 engine, which along with two turbochargers clock in at 430 hp enabling the car to get from 0-97kmph (60mph) in 6 seconds. It features a standard 6 speed manual transmission.
