Apex F80 Ring Taxi Hot Lap Video

BIMMERPOST
     Featured on BIMMERPOST.com
Hi everyone. I had the opportunity two weeks ago to go for a ride in the Apex heavily modified F80 around the Nurburging, and we got a video. Thought I would share for everyone to see (ignore the banter on the audio, just some of my buddies in the car )

Car was an absolute MONSTER. We did the same thing last year before they really stripped it down and added the roll-cage and all of the other mods, and the difference is astonishing. It was a very fast lap, and our driver has logged over 3000 laps... so he's got it down.

Here is the video of the lap:


Here is a video on the car:


Hope you enjoy!

Agreed! Biggest part of it is experiencing the ride with friends.

6:03 "What are you looking for?" "The youtube corner" Yeah, easier to remember and pronounce than "Brünnchen".

Sadly no more videos, they are banning the utubers from the track. Or you can stay but promise to not show any crashes.

So, the owners are going after the guys showing the mayhem that Touristenfahrten has became, instead of chasing down the "bad guys" and ban them from the track.

Funny seeing this now, I just rented an M2 from them to drive on the Nurburgring on Saturday. I highly recommend Apex to anyone considering renting a car for the Nordschleife, they were great to work with and pricing was reasonable. I walked in without any prior contact and was on the track in about half an hour. They even send an instructor to ride with you on your first lap which is super helpful, the ‘ring is a monster!

Agreed. Also, for renting taxi laps. Had a go in their 720S with Moritz driving.
