The automobile industry as a whole is made of sub-genres that are not quite related to each other. Two such totally unrelated genres are the drifting cars and self-driving cars, which by no means were interconnected till BMW released this video. Self-driving cars are in their nascent stage and drifting is the advanced level of driving skills and hence bridging the gap between two is quite a challenging task.

While the BMW is known for many ground-making innovation, the M-series is the crown of them all. And there is little doubt that the BMW M235i is a capable drifting car. In a latest released video, BMW has challenged the limits by contesting an autonomous drifting car with a champion drifter. And the clip released is just a trailer of the whole episode.

Last year, when BMW launched the M3 and M4 in India, we saw the capability of these lethal machines, same as BMW did in South Africa, when they pitted five of the M235i at the Driftmob proving that the coupe could slide even without a driver intervention. And realizing the response audience gave, BMW came up with the idea of this video.

While all the big auto houses are making efforts to enhance the driverless technology, we are happy to see the results and certainly hope that this progress will be on track in coming days.
