Fifth Gear's Tiff Needell flogging the M3

I found this video on fastestlaps....pretty cool.

Great find!! Is it just me or does the passenger seem a bit bored/dull?

If I had a few laps like that, I'd be giggling like a schoolgirl.

Judging by the white inserts on the car, it seems like they used one of those pricey limited edition M3's (not sure which one though, theres over 9000 different varients ) nice find!

thanks for sharing...I loved watching all of Tiff's reviews of the various "M" cars.

Great find. Tiff Needell seems like one of those kind of people that is always up and having a good time. Maybe it's because we always see him playing with cars!

I'm mostly impressed that he can so clearly verbalize what he's doing. I know a lot of guys that can drive well, but it takes all of their concentration, it looks effortless for him.

Passenger was so boring I would have had a blast like usual. Riding shotgun on track feels 10x more crazy than actually driving

+1 I drove shotgun with Andy Petree and while not a huge Nascar fan, going full out with him was more fun than doing laps on our own, especially when he would whip it sideways like Tiff does, only inches from the wall (and your window)!

Yeah... true, but he said he had just gotten out of the Scuderia... Ferrari vs M3, Love my M but a little subtle after a ride in a F430 Scuderia.

Tiff really likes to talk, doesn't he? He seems like good guy to have a beer or two with sometime. Good video.


Cheers.

Walter Rohrl can do that as well. But he speaks German which is a problem for me

I'm kindda a fan of Fifth Gear more than Top Gear becuz of him. (Tiff Needell)

He definitely can drive and make a review very well.

Ohh, a very good car in his hands, as well!!!
