BMW M5 Returns as Ring Taxi



When production of the previous generation BMW M5 (E60) ended, so did Ring-Taxi duty around the Nürburgring Nordschleife. It was then replaced by the BMW M3 (E90) sedan less than a year ago.
Now BMW M has announced the new generation M5 (F10) is reporting for duty and ready to give paying passengers (up to three) the ride of their lives around the famous "Green Hell."
For those who don't know, the Ring-Taxi is literally a taxi ride, but what makes this one so special is that you don't tell the driver where to go! He tells you to buckle up and enjoy the adrenalin rush you're about to receive. The taxi driver, who is a well-versed BMW Driving Experience Instructor, takes you on a "spirited" drive in his 560 bhp BMW M5 taxi around the world's most demanding race circuit, the Nürburgring Nordschleife.
The Ring-Taxi is operated by BMW in conjunction with OK-Speed-Marketing and reservations can be made online at a rate of EUR 216.- incl. VAT at http://www3.bmw-motorsport.com/ms_en...kets_and_dates
One important piece of advice: the trips are very much in demand. A ticket allocation is released for booking every Monday at 10 am CET. You have to be quick - experience shows that it only takes a few minutes for all the tickets to be gone until the following Monday.
