Periodically Pennzoil decrees that it is time to remind people of the superlative engine-protecting properties of its synthetic oil by mercilessly destroying a set of tires while dramatically drifting a car around some unsuspecting city for its Joyride videos.
This year, driver Rhys Millen attacked Barcelona in a blazing yellow Ferrari 488 GTB. The 660-horsepower twin-turbo 3.9-liter V8 engine powers the 488 to 60 mph in just 3.0 seconds, and the car has a top speed of 205 mph, but Millen swaps speed for billowing tire smoke in this video, which sees him escape a racetrack and tear around town. The track escape lends the film its name, Joyride Circuit.
Last year, Pennzoil released a video of Millen drifting through Cape Town, South Africa with a 707-horsepower Dodge Hellcat. Also yellow, but otherwise sort of the opposite of the 488. It was titled Joyride Airlift Drift because the scene was CGI-altered to appear to be performed on an airlifted section of asphalt.
But we love seeing Millen shredding both cars, so until Pennzoil releases a new video next year, enjoy watching these two smoky thrillers, along with the making-of video above.
