M, the most powerful letter in the world, on one of the most thrilling roads in the world, reserved exclusively for M. 14. Juli 16
Author: Helmut Bruendl
This is what every sports car driver dreams of:
A mountain road in the Transylvanian Alps which winds itself up to an altitude of more than 2000 meters in countless curves and hairpin bends and is considered to be one of the most beautiful roads in the world - the famous Transfăgărășan.
A fleet of M cars, ready and waiting in the Făgăraș mountains - in colours like Java Green, Altlantis Blue, Ruby Red, Grigio Medio, Frozen Black, Messing, Frozen Cashmere Silver, Gey Black and Frozen Blue. High-performance sportscars, one more thrilling and individual than the other.
And, last not least, an inconspicuous yellow sign which only allows M drivers to access this dream road on this day.
Just a dream?
But the dream came true.
The day on the Transfogaraschen mountain road in June 2016 was one of the highlights of the M Drive Tour 2016 organised by the BMW Group Central and Southeastern Europe. It puts customers and prospects from 12 countries behind the wheel of this unique fleet of M automobiles.
The event already began the previous evening in Bucharest. From there the participants were flown directly to the mountain pass road by chartered plane and helicopters where the fleet of M cars awaited them.
Reading this may make you just a little envious. But hey, there are a great many other beautiful roads and M cars. Why not show us some on the BMW M Facebook page.
