“Drifting is the most exciting way to take a bend”

... says BMW Driving Instructor Stefan Landmann. Drifting is a balancing act between traction and losing control. And how it’s done depends on what kind of drive the vehicle has. In the new video How to Drift Part 2, the racing driver and BMW Driving Experience instructor explains what’s important when drifting with the all-wheel M xDrive and rear-wheel drive. And he’s brought the ideal drift vehicle to the shoot: the BMW M8 Competition Coupé with 625hp, distributed via the iDrive setting to either all four or just the back wheels.


From entering and holding the drift to leaving it: Stefan Landmann shows the different driving techniques and gives some important tips on drifting with both kinds of drive.

 

Only drive on cordoned-off areas, not on public roads.

EXPLAINED: THE BMW M XDRIVE.

Thanks to the BMW M xDrive and the Active M Differential, sporting performance can be experienced even more intensely, whether in everyday driving or on the racetrack. The M specific technology distributes the driving power steplessly and fully variably between the front and rear axles so that the vehicle can be steered and controlled with extreme precision and safety, both when driving dynamically and in inclement weather conditions. Already in the basic setting with activated DSC (Dynamic Stability Control) and 4WD, the M displays its typical agility. The M Dynamic Mode and 4WD Sport increase this agility distinctly. According to personal preference or road quality, in DSC Off mode the driver can choose between the drive options 4WD, 4WD Sport and 2WD. In 2WD mode the drive is confined to the rear wheels. Here, only the Active M Differential engages to distribute the power between the rear wheels with complete flexibility according to the situation in order to ensure ideal traction and driving stability. All in all, M xDrive expands the driving qualities, optimizes the handling characteristics and makes the vehicle easier to control, so that the high performance can be enjoyed even more intensely.

WHO IS WHO.

Stefan Landmann.

Racing driver, winner of the 24-hour Nürburgring race, instructor: Stefan Landmann seldom strays from the racing line. As a class winner in 2011 in the 24-hour Nürburgring race on the notorious Nordschleife, the thoroughbred race car driver conquered one of the most demanding racetracks in the world in a BMW M3 GT4. As a certified BMW instructor, the 30-year old Austrian is the right man in the right place when it comes to translating the fascination of racing to the road. “It’s a great pleasure for me to work with people who are as car-mad as I am,” says Landmann. “I’m happy to pass on my motorsport experience.”

  • The models illustrated include optional equipment.

    The values of fuel consumptions, CO2 emissions and energy consumptions shown were determined according to the European Regulation (EC) 715/2007 in the version applicable at the time of type approval. The figures refer to a vehicle with basic configuration in Germany and the range shown considers optional equipment and the different size of wheels and tires available on the selected model. 

    The values are already based on the new WLTP regulation and are translated back into NEDC-equivalent values in order to ensure the comparison between the vehicles. [With respect to these vehicles, for vehicle related taxes or other duties based (at least inter alia) on CO2-emissions the CO2 values may differ to the values stated here.] 

    The CO2 efficiency specifications are determined according to Directive 1999/94/EC and the European Regulation in its current version applicable. The values shown are based on the fuel consumption, CO2 values and energy consumptions according to the NEDC cycle for the classification. 

    For further information about the official fuel consumption and the specific CO2 emission of new passenger cars can be taken out of the „handbook of fuel consumption, the CO2 emission and power consumption of new passenger cars“, which is available at all selling points and at https://www.dat.de/angebote/verlagsprodukte/leitfaden-kraftstoffverbrauch.html
