Hop Onboard a BMW Z4 M as It Hunts Down a Gumpert Apollo on the Nurburgring

This clip features a track-prepped BMW Z4 M getting up close behind a Gumpert Apollo, and it's a treat.

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Gumpert_Apollo
Top speed: 360.4 km/h (223.9 mph)
0-100 km/h (62 mph): 3.1 seconds
0-200 km/h (124 mph): 9.1 seconds.

The video shows him tracking very well w/the Apollo....and it looked like he was out-braking him often....perhaps the Apollo driver was not as advaanced as the Z4M driver, but this is still incredibly impressive; the Z4M reached 230 kph or 144 mph at one point,.
