    This Model S driver obviously knows his way around the P85's fuse box...

    that was an expensive $2000 for completely burning out those tires in 30 seconds.

    Thanks for posting this great video :)
    This is in Japan, in Tokyo, where drifting is really really big, so hopefully this can give Tesla even more exposure over here. The driver is hilarious. Before taking off, he says "Hi everyone... so, they put me in this car, that I had never seen before, told me to floor it... so, I'll do my best, and try not to crash it". :p

    Haha no way! Who in their right mind would give up their Tesla to somebody that never drove one? Was it the lack of coat hooks? No grab handles?

    He is a SUPER GT 300 champion in Japan. He said it's his first time to drive a Tesla and he said he was impressed by enormous torque of motor. Seems like he wasn't able to control drifting well? Too much power? The car is owned by a tuning shop in Okayama.
