Garage 419 gets the R8 sideways

That title should be followed by …”on ice.” Historically, most car folk know it’s difficult to drift an all-wheel drive car due to its natural adversion to letting the wheels slip. On Top Gear and Fifth Gear Jeremy Clarkson and Tiff Needell, respectively, ¬†tried very hard to step out the rear of the Audi R8 with only limited success.

Well, Matt Farah of Garage 419 fame has trumped both of them by taking the Audi to place where no car, whether rear-wheel or all-wheel driven, can get grip, a frozen lake. I’m truly jealous that they get go out and do something like this…but I’m still glad to live in balmy, sunny Florida!
