A visit to BMWs sanctuary (GRiP)

BIMMERPOST
     Featured on BIMMERPOST.com
A bit like BIMMERPOST's visit to the BMW M GmbH basement, but even more.

Matthias of GRiP visits some icons in BMWs "holy halls" It's in german but these guys have some of the best videos out there! Always with fun and passion

My favs: Lemans V12 startup, M1 roar!

Translation by ChiTownM:

Quote:
They are talking about 4 floors with 4000 square meters each to house all cars and bikes that matter. At the end of floor 4 the have an additional climate controlled safe area for the special cars such as the F1 and F2 cars as well as the first 6 fully electric cars and the M1 he drives at the end. The first car he drove was the epic 3.0 CSL that was developed with Alpina. BTW, the green 95 M3 is a GT model with extra HP and some additional body work.

The 7 series has a 16 cylinder engine, the X5 the Le Mans 12 cylinder engine that was created by M to prototype how much power the X5 could handle .... Basically what became the venerable X5M. The Z3 has a 12 cylinder engine.

The movie cars are from Mr Bean, James Bond and Tom Cruise and all original. Oh yeah, he nearly broke off the mirror from the James Bond car when they were backing out of the garage, oops. Under the covers you will find the original art cars which are said to be worth several million euros - each that is.

Enjoy, the reporter was speechless more than once, so not much else to translate for you folks, I may have missed some details here and there but you get the gist of it.

This is the BMW holy Grail, they were not allowed to pinpoint its location, it is I. The greater Munich area.


EDIT:

Bonus video, had to go back to an old favorite after watching this: Tiff Needell starting up the BMW V12 powered Mclaren F1 GTR. Goose. Bumps.

Mclaren bit starts at 3:32

I watched the whole video with rapt attention desperately wishing I spoke German. Maybe if I watch it a few more times I'll start to pick it up.

I hope to see more exciting cars from the M GmbH and BMW in the near future now, a nice CSL M4 or the next gen M1.

One of the best videos I've ever seen, wow. What a privilege to get to see those cars, I could spend all weekend in there. So many cars that I would love to see, yet alone drive. That E36 M3 GT, Lemans V12, Mclaren F1 GTR, red Z8...

I think my new goal in life is to own a BMW from every decade. 2 down, lots more to go haha
