There are many number of ways you can support your country's athletes heading into the Olympics. You could watch them on television. You could follow them to the site and get tickets for your favorite events. You could buy and wear some official team apparel. But if you're BMW, none of that will do. No, you're going to do some hooning. Something that involves, say, pulling donuts on the beach in a twin-turbo super-sedan.

That's just what the Bavarian automaker, which acts as official automotive partner (read: car sponsor) for the 2012 Olympic Games in London, has done to promote its participation and support the athletes. Which is fine by us, because it gives us the opportunity to watch... a twin-turbo super-sedan pulling donuts on the beach. Or to be more specific, the new M5 at the hands of stunt driver Wolfgang Weber at Pendine Sands in Wales.

      Is it too much to ask for a guy putting the car in 1st instead of D?

        Its so funny to read these comments from americans that loves their american manufactures. Here in Europe we don't even care about cars like the CTS-V... I actually had to Google CTS-V to see how it looked like, and when I saw it I got reminded why I forgot about it. (No offense to owners, it's my honest opinion)

        Why, exactly? I mean, although the CTS-V is the best all round GM (or maybe even American) car ever made, combining performance with a decently luxed up interior, it is far from being the end all for performance sedans. The new M5 is faster, more technologically advanced, better handling, and more refined than both the CTSV and the outgoing E60 M5 V10 that pretty much tied the Caddy. So, I dont think the CTSV owner has too much to LOL over the M5 about, save for a somewhat justified price difference.

        No, there isn't, because the people that actually have the money to own such a car aren't immature *****. Only the idiots like you who don't own one actually think real owners look at each other and laugh. Anyone with a CTS-V or an M5 knows how good the other car is and they don't act like children by pretending one is so superior.

      He's very lucky the outside rear wheel didn't dig a hole in the sand and roll the car.

      Poor car. All that saltwater getting into god knows where. I would only do this to a car I hated.

      I got bored after 30 seconds. So I scrolled down to write this review.
