A BMW M5 Ring Taxi was filmed during a crash at the legendary Nurburgring race track.

Judging by the footage below, the M5 Ring Taxi carried lots of speed in the corner, the car began to oversteer and the countersteer was a bit too late. The driver seemed to have fully applied the brakes so the impact with the guard rail wasn’t as bad as you would expect.

The BMW Ring Taxi was “followed” immediately prior to the accident by a red Porsche 911 GT2 (997).

According the driver of the Porsche had used the beam flash several times to inform the driver of the M5 Ring Taxi about his intention to go faster.

Luckily, no one seems to have been hurt in this crash.
