BMW S 1000 R and M3 | Pic of the Week


The only thing potentially cooler than a drifting car is a drifting motorbike - ergo, both things together are the coolest thing ever. Fact. Which makes our latest Pic of the Week - featuring a BMW S 1000 R and M3 in smoky tandem - a serious contender for the best-of-2019 shortlist.Β 

The 165hp (at 11,000rpm!) two- and 431hp four-wheeled Beemers are apparently part of the brand’s Australian (of course it’s Australian) driving experience fleet, which customers can pay to sample on track for $1,395 per day. Included in that is tuition and demonstrations from factory drivers/riders, so you’re likely to come away with greater awareness of the product’s potential - and with a ruddy big grin on your face, too.Β 

Obviously most of us are on the wrong side of the planet to take part in all this sampling and experiencing (although if any of our Australian readers have done so, we’d love to hear about it) but we can at least enjoy it at a distance. Of around two feet from our desktops…

    Yes. Why, do I have to go back and do it again then, as they don't match the exact same models in the article? :/

    Oh forget all that, what you want for Christmas is a pillion ride with Troy Corser.
