A Year End Salute to Tire-Shredding Drifting


The best way to have fun in a car you don't own.

Looking for a way to spend a fortune on a new sets of tires? Go drifting. Sure, causing even greater kinetic energy between tire tread and pavement is tons of fun, but a new set of tires is anything but cheap. So what solution is there? Drift someone else’s car, specifically a press car provided by an automaker. That’s exactly what Motor Trend's Carlos Lago got to do on Ignition.

Every week a new car was test on both the road and track, and before the day was over, its tires just had to be shred. Well, at least somewhat. Check out this compilation video showcasing some of this past year’s greatest drifts.
