Heavily Modified 1,300HP BMW Sets World Record For Fastest Car On Ice At 215.5MPH

March 5, 2019

This is a video of a very heavily modified 1,300HP BMW E30 M3 blasting across the ice at the recent Speed Week event in Årsunda, Sweden, and topping out at a record-breaking 346.82km/h (215.50MPH). That's fast. Some might even argue too fast, but clearly those people clearly don't have THE NEED FOR SPEED like I do. "Says the kid who constantly yells at his school bus driver to slow down." Mrs. Wright drives like a maniac! I'm trying to sell candy back here, nobody wants to buy a handful of Runts that have been rolling around on the bus floor. "I'll give you a quarter for all th--" I'M NOT SELLING JUST THE BANANAS.

Keep going for the video, which includes driver's view, rear view and outside footage of the run.

Thanks to Marc B, who agrees if all those Ice Road Truckers drove this fast the ice wouldn't have time to crack and break.

    Jeez. That engine sounds like my last girlfriend...Just screaming!

    I'll trade you my Orange runts for your Bananas.

    I'd really like to know what kind of tires they used. That performance/accomplishment is as much attributable to the tire as it is to the motor.

  • Michael Knight

    sure it may be flat but if you lose control this seems like the worst surface to be on.

  • Deksam

    For when you have to get to that fishing hole 1st!

  • Gingerbread

    You know you have to stop at the end

  • Geekologie

    stop at the end OR SLIDE AROUND THE PLANET?

  • Tigerh8r

    It took him a few minutes to break the record but they can't congratulate him until next Tuesday when he stops.

  • Ollie Williams

    Yay BMW!

  • FearlessFarris

    It would have to be an AWD model, right? Also I wonder what kind of tires they chose? If I recall correctly, they used Nokian Haakapelita (sp?) IIs for the last ice speed record (but that may have been on an Audi?).

  • Ollie Williams

    I suppose it could have been converted to AWD, but certainly not necessary once you get up to speed. I would hope big ass beefy winter tires.
