Our coverage from M Festival continues. BMW had an awesome lineup of cars at display during M Night, but besides the new M3 CRT and the new M5, there were also the M3 GT2 race car, an E46 M3 GTR and the E90 M3 Ring Taxi on display.

We'll have our fingers crossed for BMW at the 24h race this upcoming weekend. In the meantime enjoy these photos! Thanks to Dackelone!!

The Ring Taxi is all stock/production car.

I think something like every 20 laps (1 lap = 21 Kms) the Ring Taxi gets a full inspection service at BMW's Test Center in Nurburg.

here is the e92 M3 for the M Festival at the Ring...
