Rolls-Royce Ghost drifting video

Whoever said that you can't drift a Rolls-Royce on dry asphalt is totally wrong. The following video shows the massive land beast of a vehicle sliding in a beautiful, long, perfect drift that took place on a stretch of dry asphalt. The video of a Rolls-Royce Phantom drifting on snow is impressive, but we all know drifting on the snow is much easier than on asphalt. The following Rolls-Royce Ghost is powered by 6.6 liter twin turbo V12 that yields more than enough power to get the 5,400 pound chassis to slide sideways; even on dry, sticky, racing asphalt (tarmacadam). Making 580 foot pounds of torque, it's easy to see why the rear-wheel drive luxury saloon is capable of drifting. Finding an owner who is willing to push the car to the edge in order to achieve a drift is a whole other story.

The entry speeds required to get this vehicle sideways are more than enough to make the owner's sphincter pucker. Priced at a cool quarter million USD, it's easy to see why there isn't many Rolls-Royce drift videos on the web today. Rolls-Royce carnage is hard to come by, but luckily there is yet another article on my wonderful column where you can witness the unthinkable! If you enjoy unique Rolls-Royce footage, check out "Rolls-Royce fire: 1958 Silver Wraith" to see a beautiful piece of history destroyed just outside of Atlanta.
