Video: Drifting a BMW 7-Series is not a good idea

There are cars that are considered ‘drift worthy’ and there are those that don’t fall into that category.

As far as we’re concerned, the 2010 BMW 7-Series falls into the latter group.

Obviously, this is of our own opinion, but we believe that the 7-Series – luxury car that it is – deserves to be treated as such. That means it should be driven in parties, gala events, and church on Sundays.

Racing and drifting it on a long stretch of road is not the kind of thin we’d want to do with our 7-Series, but that nonetheless hasn’t stopped these people from doing exactly that. Judging by their performance, we’re pretty sure that these guys are not professional drifters and they’re doing it just for the adrenaline rush. While we’re not opposed to thrill-seeking endeavours, especially drifting, we think that there are far more appropriate cars to use than a BMW 7-Series.

Kirby’s first exposure into the world of automobiles happened when he caught Knight Rider on television as a five-year old boy. David Hasselhoff didn’t leave much of an impression on him (that happened later on in Baywatch), but KITT certainly did. To this day, Kirby remains convinced that he will one day own a car with the same ‘spirit’ as the original KITT (not the 2008 monstrosity). He doesn't know when that will be, but until then, he’s committed to expressing his love for KITT, and all cars for that matter, here at TopSpeed.  Read More

Whoa. Those are pretty courageous yet stupid at the same time dudes. Kinda amazing on how they got away with it everytime. I wonder why there were only one police after them. They maybe some high profile people or something to be able to pull a stunt like that and get away with it.

Drifting on a public highway is not a good Idea, and their drift cars is not suitable in that kind of punishment. thou the have a lot of money to spent, why didn’t get themselves a tuner-car it would be better for them plus they can drift easily and Insane.

are they bored or something? hahah Illegal drifting in Middle east. that’s funny because they are drifting with traffic. 2:43 was close to other car. Luxury cars are not meant to be tortured like what they are doing here. they should bought a tuner car. with that they can drift easily and not tight on budget. well i guess they have a lot of money to spent.

well bmw 7 series is heavier to drift, and its suspensions are so soft that’s why BMW skid to much on the dirt.

LMAO. I agree that they’re not professional drifters and as I’ve checked the video very well, they’re like a puny insects by trying to drift and it’s that awful.

Unfortunately, they are senseless Saudis which they don’t have any responsibility about any thing in their life. Shame on them really
