We are living in the golden age of high-quality driving videos, and Luke Huxham (backed by Red Bull Japan) and independent producer Alessandro Pacciani have dropped a pair of oddly riveting new videos depicting very cool cars drifting through improbable backdrops.

Huxham fit a classic Ferrari F40 with snow chains and rally lights and sent it up a Japanese ski run. Pacciani created a CGI cityscape as the background for a drifting BMW M4. Both videos feature cacophonous aural effects underscoring every subtle action, with the sound of growling monsters in the Pacciani film, and even pulling a glove into place produces a dramatic “whoosh” in the Huxham movie.

After a look at that tricked-out Ferrari, see what you think of BMW’s latest sport coupe drifting through a nighttime fantasy land.

Google Translate did its best with the description on the Japanese Red Bull site. Most of the resulting fractured verbiage is nonsensical, but this bit of truth shone through: “The car is not only a tool for running, but it gives us the color to life.” That’s better than anything we could say in Japanese.
