Driving pleasure captured on film: The BMW M235i Coupe at the “Drift Mob” shoot in Cape Town.
30. Juli 14


A flash mob has long become commonplace, but the drift mob is a true innovation, as it requires specialised skills at the wheel and a very exceptional automobile. Both of these attributes came together in Cape Town. Five BMW M235i Coupes painted in Melbourne Red drove through the city to suddenly and seemingly spontaneously transform an urban traffic roundabout into a film set.

They were steered by five of the world’s best and most experienced stunt drivers, with the encounter being captured for posterity by Hollywood legend Mic Rodgers (“The Fast and the Furious”). The result is a perfectly staged action video with smoking tyres and that special “goose bumps” feeling.
