Reminder: Drift Mode Does Not Make You A Driving God

Whenever the time for Cars and Coffee rolls around, there’s the undeniable chance that a soon-to-be-wrecked Ford Mustang will roll up to the lot. But it wasn’t a Mustang this time around—it was the drifting machine known as the Ford Focus RS, with a driver who utterly failed to drift it on the way out.

Before we get to the video, let’s remember that the RS is the same car that one of the guys from Carfection put his mom inside of in order to prove that anyone can drift the car with its Drift Mode feature. But the car isn’t total black magic when it comes to drifting, as this driver demonstrates to an entire crowd:

Hey, none of us can get it right 100 percent of the time. Perhaps the driver just got nervous with all of the cameras, nearly wrecking the poor thing as a result. It wasn’t a Mustang, but at least this person managed to keep the trend within the Ford family.


If this becomes a meme-worthy thing, maybe a bunch of discounted Ford Focus RS listings will wind up on Craigslist.
