What’s the fastest Christmas card in the world? According to BMW, it’s the all-new BMW M5, the super-sporty sedan that comes to market to regain its status as the “ultimate sedan.” The drifting and high-speed video was shot at Circuit de l’Anneau Du Rhin where BMW asked an illustrator to draw a cliché Christmas motiv during a little ride.

The result? An electrifying video showcasing the capabilities of the F10 M5.

A quick recap of some of the performance points. F10 M5 comes equipped with a high-revving 4.4-liter (4395cc) turbocharged that uses the BMW M TwinPower Turbo technology. The engine outputs 560 horsepower from 5,750-7,000 rpm and 680Nm (502 lb-ft) of torque from only 1500rpm.
