It's easy to give BMW a hard time these days with its move into practically every automotive segment that exists and plans to add more front-wheel drive models to the brand in the future. However, the pursuit towards perfection that underscored its old Ultimate Driving Machine motto is still in there, especially in its M models. In fact, the first M4 recently made it to North American shores, and the company thought the only appropriate way to celebrate was to introduce the new coupe to some of its high performance forefathers.
The M4's initiation into the M car brotherhood involved bringing together 52 classic and newer models, including 4 racecars, to an empty parking lot and letting the coupe drift and slalom around them to say hello. According to BMW, there was a combined 11,566 horsepower on tap among all of them. It takes a pretty trusting owner to stand back and watch as a brand new vehicle slides its tail out with the rear wheels smoking within feet of their pride and joy. Stay tuned until the end where the owners and their cars get a shout out in the credits. Scroll down to read BMW's press release about it.
