The spot's months old, but that doesn't make it any less entertaining. It shows Team Mopar's Samuel Hubinette piloting the Charger drift car into, through, and out of an airplane hangar. What's particularly cool is that you can follow the tire marks on the ground from previous takes and/or practice runs as the car does its thing. The superscript at the bottom of the screen as it begins reads "Closed Course. Professional Driver. Do Not Attempt."
Professional driver, indeed. Hubinette's nasty. Follow the jump for the spot. SPEED TV seems to still air it pretty regularly, too.

      Nothing like a tire promoting their own tire shredding. Simply Awesome.

      Looks like Ford's Father and Son and Police Chase commercials were worth doing over ......

      I'm just pissed that Dodge wont make the Charger Super Bee package (or even just the "regular" SRT) in B5 blue. They had one at the Autorama in Detroit.

      Having been just on the other side of a k-rail as that very car flew past, I can assure you that exhaust note is real. Like Sean said, go to a Formula D event or a D1 event and hear for yourself. Hubinette is an extremely talented driver.

      This ad seems ironic to me

      I wish Nascar cars looked like that. All of them look the name now.

        I also wish NASCAR cars were actually "cars" instead of overgrown tube-frame go-kart / billboards.
        • 7 Years Ago
        Amen to that.

      Now how exactly does one get to be that "Professional Driver, closed course"? I've always wondered that.

        ha ha ha. The mythical land of the professional driver and his fabled 'closed course' where there are no other cars.

        There are plenty of airfields with smooth tarmac, or if the producers want to spend a lot of money, they can close off a for city blocks for a number of hours.
        (They're filming segments of the new Batman movie in Chicago, and a few blocks of the loop were shut down at night.)


        What's the camera mounted on?

        I've been trying to figure that out, myself, CoffeeJones. So far, no luck.
        • 7 Years Ago
        I thought a bike could be a possibility, too.
        • 7 Years Ago
        My guess is, another car.
      • 7 Years Ago
      Months old or not, that's some serious driving and some serious skill.

      The exhaust note sounds nothing like a stock Charger... I know that has a modified SRT8 motor in it tho, but I can't help but think the exhaust sound was fake.

        The sounds not fake. Come out to a Formula D event , thats how the car sounds. If you have any questions about it , I would suggest asking Shawn from Nu-Formz.
