North Atlantic Drift: BMW M4 goes Top Gun on aircraft carrier

Picture a racetrack twisting around the deck of an enormous aircraft carrier. Got it? Now take a (mostly sideways) lap in a BMW M4.

The ultimate racetrack

Okay, so BMW’s ‘Ultimate Racetrack’ might not be real, but we love the idea. Isn’t it incredible how CGI can make something so ludicrous appear so convincing? The tail-happy M4 looks right at home attacking the numerous tight turns. It sounds pretty good, too. Perhaps someone should show this video to Mr Ecclestone – in a world of DRS and push-to-pass, a floating racetrack would probably be more than welcome in Formula One. 

Feel like going 'Top Gun' as well? There are numerous ready-to-race BMWs for sale in the Classic Driver Market.
