Samuel Hubinette Doing Incredible Drifting in his Dodge Challenger
I’m definitely not the first blogger to post this video, but it’s too great not share. When most people think of drift cars, the Challenger is nowhere near the top of their mind, but the driving of Samuel Hubinette at the Red Bull Drift Shifters 2012 event in Auckland, New Zealand may bring that vehicle to the front of their mind from here on out.
Samuel Hubinette, who’s also known as The Crazy Swede, has become one of the world’s premiere stunt and performance drivers. With a number of impressive Formula D and D1 Grand Prix events under his belt, as well a very impressive Hollywood stunt driving resume, he has become a sort of super star in the automotive drift world–which is what makes seeing him utilize the Dodge Challenger and show off the vehicle’s amazing potential so exciting. The video shows off some of his drift highlights from the event where he placed second, an impressive showing considering the tight construction of the event track and the size of the Challenger by comparison to your standard drift vehicle.
Give the video a watch–and appreciate the fact that nobody felt the need to include an over the top music track over the noise–listen to the harmonious bellow of the Challenger exhaust and hold your breath as The Crazy Swede brings his Challenger within inches of danger time and time again.
Be sure to switch your media player over to 1080p HD quality to better enjoy the sights and sounds of this impressive Challenger driving.
