A few days back, BMW released a new promotional video of the new M235i coupe. Instead of filming it numerous scenic spots around the city of Cape Town, the producers decided to block a large traffic circle in downtown and let the cars lose for some intense drift action. They call it ‘Driftmob’ which is probably the best way to promote a rear-wheel drive BMW coupe. As you will see in the following video, it can drift quite well.

Based on the concept of flashmob, the video starts with a sole BMW M235i which is then joined by four more M235is which then put up a synchronized drift routine for about a minute before it gets a bit too much for the female cop on duty who then falls for one of the guys, etc, etc. Anyway, go ahead and watch the video.
