BMW: The fastest Christmas song…in the world

Fri, 14 Dec 2012

BMW has enlisted the BMW M135i, DTM driver Martin Tomczyk and the Zurich Acapella Group to create the fastest Christmas song in the world.

The BMW M135i may not be a ‘real’ BMW M car, but it’s still mighty swift.

With its 3.0 litre straight six complete with Twin Scroll Turbo it delivers 315bhp and can get to 62mph (with the auto ‘box) in an impressive 4.9 seconds.

So, as you would, BMW wondered what it would be like if they put a pro driver behind the wheel (DTM driver Martin Tomczyk) and got him to blast the M135i round the Circuit de l’Anneau du Rhin with a bunch of singers in the back trying to do a rendition of Jungle Bells.

So BMW roped in the Zurich Acapella Group, gave them all a helmet and stuck them in the M135i with instructions to give their all to Jungle Bells whilst Martin Tomczyk did his best to get them round the track as quickly as possible.

BMW are calling this rendition of Jungle Bells ‘The Fastest Christmas Song in the World’, which is all about the speed the M135i is doing rather than the speed of the Acepella Group. And it probably is.

Or at least until someone sticks a full choir in the new Audi RS6 Avant.
