A valet in the U.S. has been fired after posting a video of him ‘reviewing’ a customer’s brand new BMW M3 on YouTube.
News of the footage originally surfaced after a viewer saw it on YouTube. The manager of the hotel was then alerted to the video resulting in the swift firing of the valet.
During the clip, the valet can be seen talking his way through some of the technical specifications of the German sports car despite wrongfully guessing that it makes use of a twin-turbocharged V6 engine. He also does some aggressive acceleration runs in the extremely tight car park as if it was a racetrack.
As a reminder, both the new M3 sedan and M4 coupe are fitted with a twin-turbocharged six-cylinder engine revving to 7,600 rpm and producing an impressive 431 hp between 5,390 rpm and 7,000 rpm and 406 lb-ft of torque from a low 1,800 rpm to 5,390rpm. That torque figure is available across a broad rev range and is an improvement over the outgoing BMW E92 M3 of 40 per cent.
As a result of brand new powerplant, both the 2014 BMW M3 and 2014 BMW M4 will sprint to 100 km/h from a standstill in just 4.1 seconds when equipped with the optional seven-speed M double clutch transmission. Top speed is limited to 250 km/h but this can be increased to 280 km/h with the optional M driver’s package.
