Remember the Douchebag LaFerrari Driver? He almost Crashed into a Car While Drifting

Since multiple of commenters disagreed with us labeling the guy who drifted the LaFerrari on public roads in Italy as a douchebag, we’re back for an update.

The clip we came across first showed the hybrid hypercar sliding rather wildly less than a lane’s width from a series of parked cars, with pedestrians also being around.

We’ve now found a longer version of the footage, one that better describes the man’s sideways stint on that day. Well, it all includes the 950 HP (963 PS) horse prancing around another car on the road.

The LaF slid its way around a Citroen C3 Picasso and while both cars were Black, it’s not difficult to imagine the drifting going wrong and the two trading more than just paint. The Ferrari halo car barely avoided the Citroen and kept on accelerating towards the horizon.

In spite of all the brilliant results of the Maranello engineers work and a driver who, admittedly, is not short on skills, the hypercar could’ve easily gone out of control at any point, leading to a serious crash.

As for the proof while you shouldn’t play such games to impress the audience, just earlier today we showed you what happened to a Corvette driver who pulled a similar stunt.

The man decided to pull a series of donuts and burnouts on a highway and when the police discovered the clip, they treated him with no less than 6 charges.

Keep it sideways, but keep it safe!
