Alpine A110 Is The Tail-Happy Renault You Were Looking For 6

The all-new Alpine A110 needs to be pretty darn good to compete against the sexy Alfa Romeo 4C, and the playful and complete Porsche Cayman.

However, it appears that it has all the right stuff to help it challenge both of its rivals, while making cars such as the Toyota 86 seem boring, in the right hands, as the video posted by L’Argus proves.

Shot on ‘Circuit du Grand Sambuc’, in Southern France, likely during the media test drive that occurred not long ago, it shows the mid-engined and rear-wheel drive French coupe drifting and power sliding for a couple of precious minutes.

The track conditions don’t seem ideal for a few fast laps, but with the traction control turned off, and with Track mode engaged, which adapts the engine, gearbox, steering, and exhaust note to their most extreme settings, the Alpine A110 became a tail-happy animal.

And it didn’t even use special tires during the exciting run, as the Michelin Pilot Sport 4S were more than capable of withstanding the lateral accelerations.

So, is this enough to make you consider buying an Alpine A110? Let us know what you think in the comments section.

Ford Focus RS Filmed Drifting Again And Again On The Ring 28

The Ford Focus RS has a special ‘Drift’ mode that makes it easier to control it when going sideways, but how often have you seen it in action during a track day at the Nurburgring?

It’s safe to assume that the driver of this compact hot hatch had a lot of fun in the famous German circuit, as he was filmed pushing that rear end out a few times and tried to keep it for as long as he could.

Still, despite almost losing it once, no cars were damaged during these tail-shaking laps, as we have seen it happen before to drivers that believed the special ‘Drift’ mode would turn them into professional drifters. After all, even your mom can drift it, can’t she?

Despite the Nordschleife being notorious for its unforgiving nature, we have to give some credit to the driver of this Focus RS not just for his skills, but also for doing his antics with the 345 HP super hatch on the track and not on public roads.

BMW M Teaches Us How To Drift 9

In case you didn’t know what BMW M drivers love most about their cars, the Bavarian sub-brand is more than willing to provide us with a reminder.

It all starts with turning the DSC off, which you press and hold for 3-4 seconds until the car indicates that the system has been disabled.

Next, once you initiate the drift (at 15-20 km/h or up to 12 mph ), BMW M recommends using the second gear, especially if you’re driving an M3 or an M4, in order to use the torque properly. By the way, to start the slide, you only need to give the accelerator a quick tap if you’re already on a slippery surface.

The BMW M instructor also explains how it’s very important to take your foot off the accelerator immediately after the rear of the car has stepped out. This is a common mistake for some people, as they forget to lift off once the drift has been initiated, applying continuous power.

The rest of the video is pretty straight forward, extremely informative and detailed. It’s a good tutorial, and we recommend it to anybody who’s looking to learn how to drift their car – preferably in a safe and non-populated area.

Lamborghini Aventador Burns Rubber And Makes Sweet Music On Closed Airfield 4

Supercar owners often forget that their powerful machines, as limited and expensive as they may be, are built to have fun in.

However, every once in a while, some of them remember the purpose of their rides, and treat bystanders to some rubber-burning and high-revving experiences, like this Lamborghini Aventador driver.

Shot on a closed airfield, likely during a supercar gathering or local automotive event, the short clip reveals the Italian bull going sideways, to the delight of the spectators.

Before putting an end to the ad-hoc show, the man pulled over and abused the throttle for a few seconds, reminding us (if we ever needed that) that the 6.5-liter naturally aspirated V12 engine that powers the Lamborghini Aventador is one of the best sounding in its class.

Bringing the engine into discussion means, it has 700PS (690hp) and 690Nm (507lb-ft) of torque in the pre-facelifted version that lacks the ‘S’ suffix, and 40PS (39hp) more in the latter, working together to propel it from 0 to 100km/h (62mph) in just 2.9sec.
