Around Atlanta: BMW Ultimate Driving Experience Tour

BMW Ultimate Driving Experience Tour

On March 21st BMW USA kicked off its 2015 Ultimate Driving Experience tour in Atlanta. For nine consecutive days, BMW enthusiasts convened at the Atlanta Motor Speedway to experience the best of BMW. Guests enjoyed everything from autocross, a 2 hour closed course driving session with a BMW professional driving instructor, to self guided street drives of the athletic 4 Series, sporty Z4, luxurious 7 Series and so much more.

I fell in love with the i8! This plug-in hybrid sports car goes from 0 to 60mph in just 4.4 seconds and has a fuel efficiency of about 112 mpg.  And apparently the Dubai Police Department loves it too, as they recently added it to their fleet of luxury cars.

While the i8 is special, it’s hard not to love many of the others models. Street drives of the 328d and the 750Li confirmed my love for the German auto brand. And I can’t forget the sporty X4 xDrive35i, which I drove for my two hour autocross session with certified BMW instructors which satisfied my need for speed. Here’s a snippet of my time on the track.

Overall it was a fun (and family friendly) day for car lovers and BMW aficionados. If you missed the event in Atlanta, check out the remaining dates of the tour in the chart below.
