BMW M135i and the fastest Christmas carol in the world

BMW takes a novel approach to a Christmas classic, using four carol singers and an M135i

It appears even carmakers aren’t immune to a bit of Christmas cheer – as BMW has proven with this automotive take on a festive favourite.

The video showcases one of the company’s latest performance cars, the M135i hot hatch, driving around a twisty racetrack, while its occupants attempt a harmonious rendition of Jingle Bells.

Thanks to the M135i’s mammoth 316bhp and 450Nm of torque, it doesn’t quite go according to plan. The flagship BMW 1 Series is capable of 155mph and 0-62mph in just 4.9 seconds.

So take a look at the clip to find out how this unusual ride pans out – and have a very merry Christmas!

Oh my God!!!

It can't be 5 seconds to reach 0-62 mph , then the 316 and 450 must be poppycock and tommyrot or does this little piglet (or Boar) weigh 4,500+.) AH I get it a drag chute releases at above 50MPH to reduce brake wear and tear .
