Promoting the new AWD M5's rear-wheel drive mode, BMW set not one, but two Guinness World Records. The first was granted once BMW Driving Instructor Johan Schwartz managed to drift for eight hours, covering 232.5 miles sideways on a wet circuit. The second record was set because despite having the option, the Bavarians decided not to give Johan a coffee break. Or any break, for that matter.
Due to the M5 needing five high pressure fuel injections on the move during those eight hours, refuel driver Matt Mullins ended up doing a tandem drift with Schwartz for an hour, covering 49.25 miles. That gave BMW a dual record, and refueler Matt Butts plenty to look out for while hanging between the two M5s with a custom built hose system in his hands.
