BMW, or specifically its 2 Series product department, has been busy for the past few months preparing for an upcoming video starring the current range-topping 326 hp and 450 Nm BMW M235i. Current, because the BMW M2 is in the works and will likely make a debut in 2015 or 2016.
This video, called the BMW 2 Series Driftmob, highlights the fun-to-drive aspects of the coupe, which Munich considers as the most driver-focused car it has to offer aside from its high-performance M division offerings. A total of five cars will be featured in the video, driven by well-known faces in motor racing including Rhys Millen, Rich Rutherford, Samuel Hubinette, Conrad Grunewald and Daijiro Yoshihara.
In the shoot, all five cars go through a stunt sequence, spearheaded by stuntman Riley Harper, who along with the drivers named above has worked on famous driving scenes in blockbuster films such as The Fast & The Furious franchise, Iron Man as well as The Dark Knight Rises, with The Fast & The Furious 7 being his latest project.
The video, which has Mic Rodgers in the director’s seat, is expected to make its official debut in about a month’s time. For now, check out some of our live photos on location from the just-concluded shoot in Cape Town, South Africa.
