BMW M5 driver goes drifting through town

Posted Jan 16th 2013 2:15PM


Just when you thought the level of ridiculous viral videos coming out of Eastern Europe had reached its plateau we are presented with an absolute gem. Looking like an audition tape for a remake of the movie Ronin, this eight minute long drift fest seems to have been prepped with a nominal support crew on busy public roads without any consideration of public safety. As a testament to the crew's BMW brand loyalty it looks like the entire support squad is built up of BMWs ranging from a lowly e46 to a pair of e65 7-series.

Filmed somewhere in Georgia, driver Giorgi Tevzadze takes us on a sideways tour of this so-far unknown city in his classic e34 BMW M5. From drifts around roundabouts to a well placed burnout at a busy traffic light, it is clear that Georgi is not afraid of local authorities tracking him down. On the upside, he seems to be very familiar with the German Über-Saloon as he repeatedly hucks it sideways near guardrails and oncoming traffic. As mad as it is, this is by far the best video of its kind to surface in ages.

We are never ones to encourage anything as reckless as filming a maniacal drift video on public roads, but if you're going to do it, this is now your new benchmark.

I think the guy is an The car of front of him (the one that made the clip) drives with the same speed without the same drifting and noise...well, our subject is a much more attractive! Plus something more - you can try this in a country without strict road discipline. Georgia has 10 times more fatalities per 100,000 vehicles than Canada! (144 vs 13)...The last fact explains a lot...
