I've seen him drive the outgoing Turner Z4 and M3 GTD/PWC cars and then this one. I swear I've seen this M6 one almost half a year ago b/c Palmer is very distinct. Did I inadvertently watch a full preview then?

anyways, not new to me, but carry on if you've never seen it before!

The YouTube publish date is Oct 25, 2016. It's possible that they just re-published it.

Would it kill him to spend $5 on a mic to plug into the GoPro so we could hear him properly?

It was filmed not too long ago, end of June. I listen to smoking tire podcast while traveling. Never heard him say anything about it being released, until recently.

They might have released it earlier on their paid network, but it seems new to everyone else.

Glad you got to see an early preview, now you can watch again!

Agreed. It's definitely one of those cars (like the i8 or C7 corvette) that looks even more aggressive and badass in person. In pictures it's fine, but up close the M6 coupe and GC are fantastic.

I don't know about the Corvette but M6 GC is one of the least talked about/best looking M cars in recent years.

Saw c7 few days ago, pics really don't do justice for that car. It's super aggressive in person. Regarding the i8, I'm not a fan, even after seeing it in person... looks kinda fugly to me haha

Couldn't hear his nervous yapping because:
1. Loud car (needed an external mic)
2. Music (terrible idea)
