We are just a few days away from Christmas, the anticipation is nearing as the final decorations are put up and holiday cards are opened. If you have been procrastinating and haven ‘t sent out cards, or prefer last minute digital cards, BMW Switzerland has created something for BMW enthusiasts, M enthusiasts to be more exact.

The card above is what happens when an M5 gets involved in creating greetings of great joy. The full video of the experience an artist had attempting to create a stereotypical Christmas card while in the passenger seat of an M5 is after the break. It ‘s an amusing idea and goes to show how great the M5 truly is.


Thick fog covers the Anneau du Rhin circuit. The prominent sound of 560 hp abruptly slices through the peace and quiet. The new BMW M5 breaks through the mist.

In the driver’s seat: a BMW precision driver. In the passenger seat: an illustrator creating a Christmas card design at full speed.

At breathtaking speed, the sportsman races through narrow curves, while the illustrator tries to hold his pen steady – in vain. Thus the fastest Christmas card in the world is created in the new BMW M5.

You are holding the result in your hands: unique, created at up to 250 km/h, and documented for you on film below or at www.fastestchristmascard.ch

With this card full of sheer driving pleasure, we wish you a peaceful festive season and a dynamic start to the year 2012.
