Fastest Lap Around Manhattan 2013 set in a Z4

During the summer of 2013, a record was set for the fastest loop around Manhattan starting from 116th St. on the FDR heading downtown, up the Henry Hudson Highway, and back down to 116th St. in just 24 minutes. This was done in a stock BMW Z4 3.0si.

Im sure Erik Davidich ( guy from smotra.ru who used to run a gold-vinyl'd e60 M5) could have done a cleaner and faster lap...
and yes, that is too soon of a video post

Cabs move faster on the FDR constantly when they get room. Not all that dangerous considering.

I thought this thread was going to be about the OP being near NYC for the day and wanting to know what to see/eat/do/etc.

Meh. Im convinced if the F1 races were done with obstacles all over the track, a NYC cabbie in a crown vic would wipe the floor with those F1 cars.

still think they would have a tough time it was a specific car with that driver, even with a brief video or photo of a license plate.

I feel so bad for car guys that live in the northeast, doing a lap around a city to be fulfilled. Long live deserted back country road!
