Drifting can be a lot of fun in the proper car and the proper location. But it can also be dangerous, as it requires a lot of skill to fully control a car’s slide around various obstacles.

Drifting under a semi trailer is usually the kind of thing we see in action movies from the "Fast and Furious" franchise, but there are drivers who can perform it effortlessly in real life. Instagram’s @c4drifter is one of those guys and the really cool thing is that he’s driving a fourth-generation Chevrolet Corvette.


The car features some mods on the outside, including new wheels and a lowered ride height. There’s no info on what lurks under the hood, but it could be more powerful than the standard model. Regardless, drifting under a trailer looks fun, but it’s not for everyone, so don’t try it at home kids!

The fourth-generation Corvette was introduced in early 1983 and remained in production until 1996. The car debuted with a 5.7-liter V-8 rated at 205 horsepower, but a revised version of the small-block mill was upgraded to 245 horses by the early 1990s.

This engine was replaced by the LT1, rated at 300 horsepower, but Chevrolet also offered an LT4 V-8 in the final year of production with 330 horses. The ZR-1 was by far the most powerful variant of the C4 Corvette, with an output of 405 horsepower and 385 pound-feet of torque from 1993 to 1995.
