Five BMW M235i Coupes go drifting

You’ve heard of flash mobs, meet the BMW ‘driftmob’. Watch five Beemers get slidey

Clearly not to be outdone by that pesky Toyota GT86 and its ability to smoke its tyres at will, BMW has released footage of what it calls the ‘Driftmob'.

Taking the ‘flashmob' innovation to the automotive sphere takes guts. And skill. And tyres. Something these five BMW M235i Coupe drivers have in abundance, because they took five red Coupes and drifted around a Cape Town roundabout.

Obviously, BMW had to close off the road, but the spectators had no idea what was to happen. The whole film was shot by one of the guys behind The Fast and the Furious, too.

Have a watch above. Does that sate your appetite for sideways? If not, read our review of the M235i Coupe here.

Now share it...
