Drifting is fun, without a doubt, we have never deny that nor we will start now. But looking at the video below one cannot wonder how safe that maneuver really is and if the driver has the skills to pull it off. We’ve had our fair share of drifting this past summer at the BMW M Performance School, but granted, it was aboard the M fleet, starting with the M3 and finishing with the almighty M6, and of course, with the school instructors holding the wheel.

Now, is really drifting in a new 7 Series considered to be cool? Don’t think so, while the car’s power might give the perception of a “drifter vehicle”, truth is that the new 7 is far from that, it’s a classy luxury sedan and used for total different purposes.

Clearly, we do not condone such excessive and dangerous driving, especially considering the unorganized event it took place in, surrounded by several cars and people around it. To each its own, but DO NOT try this at home!
