BMW M3 E92 Can’t Keep Up With ‘Ring Taxi, Hits Side Barrier

The Nurburgring has claimed yet another victim, a previous-gen BMW M3 whose driver lost control and hit the barriers as a result.

Filmed not long ago, the following video shows the E92 M3 trying to keep up with the newer ‘Ring Taxi, when the rear end slides out.

The driver tries to keep it in between the white lines, counteracting the oversteer by pointing the nose in the right direction. However, the car was traveling too fast, and inevitably ended up scraping the side barrier until it came to a complete stop a few seconds later.

It appears that the bodywork suffered the worst damages, so the car is not a write-off. More importantly, nobody was hurt during the accident, and other drivers were warned about the danger by stewards waving a yellow flag.

Watch: A BMW M3 Crashes At The Nordschleife During A Snowstorm

Easily one of the most desired iterations of the BMW M3, thanks to its naturally aspirated V8 that worked together with a 7-speed DCT or a 6-speed manual gearbox, the E9x-gen was assembled between 2007 and 2013 at the Regensburg facility. It came in a sedan, coupe and convertible body styles, and took as little as 4.6 seconds to reach 100km/h (62mph) from a standstill.

The coupe models currently sell for just over €20,000 ($24,640), whereas the rarer, lighter and more powerful GTS can be 10 times more expensive for barely-driven examples in pristine condition.

    Worn out tires I think cause this!

    I wonder if people driving on the limit on Nurburgring with more expensive cars are usually quite rich, so they are using different every day cars and are not afraid of paying for repairs for their track car. Or they are just taken away by the adrenaline and they risk having an accident with their expensive primary car.
    And btw. thanks for speed in km/h and price in € 🙂
