Watch a Ford Raptor drift around the Nürburgring

Ford double-cab bakkie goes very sideways

As unlikely combos go, Ford Raptor and Nürburgring is right up there. Mixing the two shouldn’t work, but as drift ace Vaughn Gittin Jr so brilliantly demonstrates in this video, it so, so does.

Watch as he slithers around a wet ‘Ring in Ford’s most extreme bakkie to date, complete with twin-turbocharged 3.5-litre V6 (as used in the Ford GT, a car MUCH more suited to the ‘Ring), ten-speed automatic transmission and switchable (obviously) all-wheel drive. So, 335kW is indeed big enough numbers to break those massive rear tyres loose and Vaughn ably demonstrates here, and it looks pretty controllable at that. Not that we’d try such a thing ourselves you understand.
