There is a time and place for drifting stupidity. There is also has be a gene that determines whether or not you have enough skills to pull off a stunt. Unfortunately, the hero we found in this modified BMW M6 has zero clue about either. His shenanigans on a busy Vietnam street goes from bad to worse in less than a second.
In the crowded metropolis of Ho Chi Minh City, there is some money floating around and we imagine the driver of this E63-chassis BMW has loads of it but clearly didn't drop the cash for a driving school. While rounding a corner he decides to mash the throttle to get the big Bavarian cruiser sideways. When the tail wags he does what most noobs do and lifts causing him to lose any form of control. The claimed 700 hp (not sure how an NA V10 with 500 hp got there) coupe snaps around real quick and there just isn't enough space to pull it off.
Caught in the mayhem is one Taxi and one scooter with a rider sitting on it. Another bystander near the taxi looked as if he would be the third casualty does his best Donovan Bailey sprinting impression to get out of harms way. The cocky driver definitely looks like a d-bag and seems far more concerned about removing his plates and peeling out of there rather than tending to the scooter rider who appears to be injured.
