BMW decided to launch 2 special edition models in China, to celebrate the year of the wooden horse in the Chinese zodiac. Therefore, 30 M5 Horse Edition models and 6 M6 Gran Coupe Horse edition cars will go on sale tomorrow in the communist country.
To celebrate the launch of these two, BMW Driving Experience Chief Instructor, Claudia Hürtgen took the M6 Gran Coupe model to the Shanghai International Circuit to show the world what the 4-door coupe is capable of.

Being fitted with the Competition Package and the Carbon Ceramic Brakes, the 575 HP beast managed to break the track record for the fastest lap done by a four-door car around the SIC.

Claudia managed a 2:28:04 time, compared to the previous record that was set at 2:29:640, a small difference but yet an advantage for BMW. You can watch her do it in the video below.
