In this 45 second commercial, the all-new BMW 1M drifts on a helipad hundreds of feet in the air over a city. Is it real? Of course not but it is very entertaining to watch, and actually looks pretty realistic. BMW has been launching these fun commercials (1M vs the Concrete Walls), to stress the fact that the 1M is a high performance machine that will be used much more than for going to the store for a jug of milk.
BMW admits that its latest high performance two door rocket will have a very limited run of one model year. With limited production in place, the $46,135 price tag may be a bargain should this car appreciate in value in the future. BMW stated that “less than 1,000 units” will be produced in 2011.
No sooner had we posted the Advantech Studios Mustang Slow-Motion Burnout video, than we received the company’s highlight reel for 2008. The automotive equivalent of porn, this is definitely some sexy stuff. Much of it was filmed for a yet-unreleased DVD but there are also a few short frames from work done for Top Gear “Made in America” and Modified Luxury & Exotics magazine.
If you haven’t seen this amazing bit of video yet then you lead an unfulfilled life. Filmed by Will of Advantech Studios, it is truly an incredible work of cinematography, in a Jerry Bruckheimer meets Top Gear sort of way.
And speaking of Top Gear, this clip was noticed by those British blokes a the BBC who then headhunted Will to work for the perpetually-in-limbo Top Gear “Made in America” show.
As for the film, it was made with a camera that shoots 300 frames per second and features a supercharged Mustang GT from Ottawa, Canada…. Eh!
If you’ve got the time (and we know you do), search “Advantech Studios” on youtube and enjoy some of their other creative offerings.
