Nurburg, Germany – Even more deeply embedded than the rivalry between Audi and Porsche, is that between the petrolheads at AMG in Affalterbach and the performance junkies at BMW’s M skunk works in Munich.

Never one to let an opportunity go by to take a dig at his rival, M’s Frank van Meel congratulated AMG on the official celebration of its 50th anniversary at the weekend’s Nurburgring 24 Hours – his tongue firmly in his cheek – with this huge poster on the side of the M trackside boma at the ‘Ring, showing what looks like an M2 shredding tyres on tarmac.

The message reads: “You ordered cake, we made donuts. M congratulates AMG on its 50th anniversary”

We can’t wait for AMG’s reply.
