That’s how long it takes for the new 3-Series to sprint from 0-60mph.
BMW recently ran a competition for its North American fans, setting them the task of creating a video that showcases how much they 'desire' the new 2012 3-Series.
The only catch was that it could last no longer than 5.9 seconds - which is about the same time it takes the car to sprint from 0-60mph. From 2,000 entries, the final winner was picked from a panel of judges that included baseball star Mark Teixeira, filmmaker Kurt Miller and Olympic gold medalist Natalie Coughlin.
Test Drive Nostalgia was the name of the winning video, created by Earl Duque of LA. The short video sees him and a friend reminiscing about test driving a BMW 3-Series, while incorporating footage from a 3-Series commercial; pretty impressive stuff to express one's feelings and be funny in less than six seconds. Check out the winning video and the 'making of' video, while other entries can be viewed at BMW's Facebook page.
