The 2018 BMW M5 might annoy some of the traditional fans due to its xDrive all-wheel, but fortunately, the system is switchable to complete rear-wheel drive. As Timo Glock demonstrates in this epic drift video.

BMW M posted the video onto its Facebook account yesterday, showing former F1 driver and BMW factory driver Timo Glock doing one hell of a drift in the new M5. He drifts one massive corner from end to end, with smoke absolutely bellowing from the rear tyres.

The new M5 features a 4.4-litre twin-turbo V8 that produces 441kW of power and 750Nm of torque. This is sent through an eight-speed sports automatic (not dual-clutch), with 0-100km/h coming up in a claimed 3.4 seconds.

BMW Australia has announced official prices and specs for the new model (see link at top of story). It arrives during the second quarter of this year. Press play on the video below to get the entertainment started.

I like to think that I'm a car fanatic, but more of a driving fanatic. There's nothing better than getting out onto the open road, almost regardless of the car, and enjoying dancing with the controls and gathering up the moving scenery. If I'm not driving I'm either at the gym or sinking a few beers with friends.
