Watch This 900-HP Mustang Drift The Entire Nürburgring Track, Because It’s Amazing
It’s 12.9 miles of tire-destroying insanity.
No one was harmed in the making of the above video, but three sets of Nitto NT555 G2 tires were absolutely shredded to bits.
That’s the price Ford paid to send professional racer Vaughn Gittin Jr. drifting around all 12.9 twisting miles of the legendary Nürburgring track in a 2018 Mustang RTR.
As Inside Hook notes, this particular pony was powered by a supercharged 5.0-liter Ford Performance Aluminator XS engine capable of producing 900 hp.
Gittin pushed his powersliding abilities to the max as he spent more than seven dizzying minutes skidding sideways through the track’s Nordschleife section, aka “Green Hell.”
He even threw in a high-speed J-turn for the hell of it.

“Drifting the Nordschliefe at the Nürburgring was the most insane and scariest experience I have ever from behind the wheel,” Gittin wrote in an Instagram post.
“Sometimes you have to force yourself outside of your comfort zone to make dreams come true.”
If his dream was to become “The Drift King of the Ring,” mission accomplished.
