BMW M5 sets two drifting Guinness World Record!

Did you ever need to refuel while drifting ? well... BMW needed to on their way to break the Longest continuous vehicle drift on the Guinness records!

"Although we practiced the refueling several times before the Guinness World Records title attempt, there was very little margin for error," said Matt Butts, the head development driver for Detroit Speed. "We're excited to have played a part in Johan and BMW recapturing this record

Once the first record was set, BMW figured that it should try and snag another one while everyone was there, you know, German efficiency and all that. Schwartz hopped back into his M5 and was joined by BMW Performance Driving Center chief instructor Matt Mullins in another M5, and they executed a one-hour water-assisted tandem drift over a length of 49.25 miles.

The record-setting 2018 M5 will also be on display in the LVCC Silver Lot.

This was not Johan's first test at breaking a record, having previously achieved the Longest continuous vehicle drift while driving an older model of the BMW M5 in 2013. However, this title has since been broken twice - Johan Schwartz.
