BMW have just uploaded a new ad for the M4 and it has got the internet boat rocking as it shows the M4 tearing around quite an unusual racetrack – an aircraft carrier! Unfortunately though, it’s not likely to be real but the clean cut video is certainly convincing and to be frank, we don’t care if it is fake, it’s still awesome.

In the ‘Ultimate Racetrack’ video, resembling something like the Gymkhana series of DC owner Ken Block, we see the 430 hp beast blazing around the ‘floating’ track and drifting along the edge in fantastic precision.

Adweek contacted Cundari, BMW’s agency in Canada, to try and get some truth on the video but unfortunately no definite answer was given. Andrew Simon, chief creative officer at Cundari, responded, “We know there is debate and we encourage that. One thing that is for sure is that the M4’s dynamic performance on the Ultimate Racetrack is thrilling viewers all around the world and for that, we’re thrilled!

Others have put forward good arguments to question the reality of the video but as we said, we’re not fussed – it’s still a thrilling watch.

The M4 will replace M3 Coupe and M3 Convertible models and comes with a 3 litre twin turbo engine. The 7-speed M-DCT transmission can accelerate the car from 0-60 mph in 3.9 seconds and weighs in under 1500kg
