BMW has just released a video onto its YouTube channel showcasing a special package BMW M has given to a selection of its customers. An ‘open pass’ to BMW M’s secret test facility in the south of France: Area 51.
The customers got to test out the complete range of BMW M cars, including two special model BMW M3s, and receive tuition on some of the current technologies employed by BMW M, as well as a brief history lesson.
Marketing gimmick or not, the test facility in the video is actually BMW M’s biggest testing ground. The track’s specific whereabouts is unknown, although, avid Google Maps fans might soon change that.
Check out the video below for more details on the private track day hosted by BMW M engineers.
