Porsche 911 GT3 Drifting in Monaco Tells a Trolling Story

The footage below is far from being just another one of the Monaco car spotting moments. The video brings us a Porsche 911 GT3 going slightly sideways through the city.
Such behavior is something we’d normally label under douchebag behind the wheel and move on. However, we’ll make an exception this time. Pushing your car over the limit in such a tight space is dangerous. At least when the streets are not closed for a Grand Prix.

Then again, this guy is using the weight distribution on his 997-generation Porsche 911 GT3 to engage in drifting behavior at ridiculously small speeds. More importantly, we see his driving as a trolling move, one that comes to disturb the financial peace in Monaco.

You see, the independent microstate of Monaco has one great problem - the superb supercar population on its streets is mainly there to fuel the egos of the owners. There are so many boys and girls who spend fortunes on cars, or small fortunes on renting them, simply to try and impress other people.

Well, the guy in the GT3 comes to show them cars are meant to be driven, not displayed, whether we’re talking about keeping them locked in a garage or cruising at single-digit speeds, a setup that allows everybody to see you behind the wheel.

Do not try this at home. Even if you are at a hotel in Monaco

Once again, we are not, by any means, encouraging behavior such as the one seen here. But since the guy in the GT3 has already done it, we figured we might as well go ahead and show you the footage.

As for how Monaco feels for the F1 drivers, whose efforts we sustain, Nelson Piquet probably has the best way of describing the Monaco Grand Prix. He once said that using the street circuit over there was like “riding a bicycle around your living room.”
