BMW M5 Reclaims Record for Longest Drift With 232.5-Mile Slide

Apparently, world drifting records are . The German automaker lost the title it originally set in 2013 to drift-happy hooligans in a in 2014, the record then standing at an impressive 89.5 miles. To promote the new , original record-setter Johan Schwartz returned to the skidpad, laying down two new world records for drifting.

After eight hours of a continual slide, drives away with the Guinness World Record, now standing at an impressive 232.5 miles of unbroken drifting. This obliterates the previous record by a whopping 143 miles.

Considering the thirsty nature of the M5's , BMW had to specially develop a new mid-drift refueling system for the sedan. The muscle car chassis experts over at Detroit Speed were tapped for the custom rig, resulting in a dry-break system much like you would find on a race car. To facilitate the refills, Matt Butts from Detroit Speed leveraged himself out the rear window of a last-gen M5, filling the record car on five separate occasions.

As an added bonus, BMW also claims the record for longest twin vehicle drift, covering 49.25 miles in one hour. Go behind the scenes of the record-setting runs in the video below.
