It almost seems like it’s been too long since we’ve seen somebody “pull a Mustang” – you know what we mean. Unfortunately, the driver of this black F10 BMW 5-Series was more than willing to remind the world that there’s no shortage of irresponsible people out there.
The incident took place last month in the Russian city of Yaroslavl, and by our count, a total of five stationary vehicles were damaged, not including the out-of-control Bavarian battering ram.
The action starts about 10 seconds into the video when the black BMW first comes into play, making a right turn in front of two pedestrians. That’s when the driver of the German saloon floored the throttle in order to get the tail end of the car to slide, which is a really silly thing to do in traffic.
After the initial two slides, which appeared to be under control, the car suddenly turned into a red stationary vehicle before proceeding to hit a few more parked cars. While we can’t be sure what happened, it could very well be that the driver lifted off the throttle, which in turn loaded up the front tires, leading the vehicle to all of a sudden steer into the turn.
If you look close, you can tell that the driver hadn’t applied any opposite lock at that point, so whatever happened definitely took them by surprise.
As for the reason why somebody would attempt this type of maneuver in public, that’s an easy one: they were looking to draw attention to themselves.
