Episode 5: The BMW Film Festival

In this episode of the Automotive Podcast Chris and Martin will be hosting their own BMW Film Festival. But first Chris and Marty discuss their thoughts so far on Netflix's Hyperdrive (https://www.netflix.com/title/80189648), and to learn more, Fielding Shredder has done a Youtube Q&A (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=bsm9GkEJcA8). Magneto magazine (https://www.magnetomagazine.com) has an extensive feature on the making of The Italian Job (https://www.imdb.com/title/tt0064505/). The author of the feature, Matthew Field, has written a great book on the subject, which you can find here through Porter Press (https://www.imdb.com/title/tt0064505/). For this episode Martin and Chris discuss the BMW USA series The Hire (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7rClhr6HKeU&list=PL49A1B22886A6A215). Chris also brings up the very NSFW Kevin Smith short, the Flying Car (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=BXYjqLLQ5KA); you have been warned! In our "what we've been watching online" segment for this week, Martin was going to suggest BMW M3 GTR ‘Ring lap with Hans-Joachim Stuck (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=FstXpvGzxZI) (or with commentary here (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=jkQmXueWIio)), but instead went for the Bugatti Chiron hits 300mph (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=NkiyAZ63RT8) because 300mph! Chris meanwhile has been going for one of the original viral car videos, from a time when sharing videos meant trading VHS tapes. Check out the classic Ruf Faszination (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=OSMCfPASImQ).
