Audi R8 Drifting: Behind the Scenes

When we told you about Audi making an R8 drifting video to celebrate reaching 500,000 fans on its German Facebook page, we thought that was the last thing we’d hear about the feat, but the carmaker has decided to offer us some extra topping.
The vehicle was manhandled by Dindo Capello, who wrote “500000” on the tarmac. The driver said that it was fun but also challenging, with the most difficult part being the “5”.

However, he bragged that the R8 V10 was a perfect tool for this job, explaining that, in the past, you had to modify the car in order to be able to pull such a stunt, while now the vehicle was just fine in stock condition. We don’t want to be mean or anything, but he should talk to somebody at BMW - maybe they’ll lend him an E30 M3.
