The Scandinavian Flick is a driving technique used mainly in rallying, but applicable in a number of racing disciplines, used to elicit some serious oversteer. There is much Scandinavian flicking going on in this professionally filmed video, shot on the closed roads of Norway.

This slidey action is courtesy of a heavily modified Toyota Cressida. Featuring work from Norway's Underground Garage and renamed "Shakotan," it sports a 2JZ-GE engine that's been liberated from the engine bay of a Toyota Supra. Shakotan is owned by Norwegian drifter Fredrik Sorlie, who just happens to be tossing the modded Cressida about. Take a look below for the entire video.

        I agree. Wearing a flannel shirt isn't enough to make you a hipster. We've been wearing them in Norway since 1989, if not earlier, and the contemporary hipsters didn't come into existence until, what, 2008?

      Great production, pretty car and copilot, but no Scandinavian flick. Lotsa handbrake & clutch drop drifts.

      That is really nice - some creative film work. Yeah - grandpa's Cressida doesn't make the best drifter - but Sorlie sure has some tight car control. It's a nice change watching a drift car blast through the Norwegian forest instead of a crowd of teens. Love the passenger and the shifter - long live the crazy Norweigians.

      What's so amazing...? Nice car but not the best drift machine by far. Wheels are too small and steering radius is awful! That guy's got a handful...

        It is exactly because the car is "not the best drift machine by far", and the other facts you point out, that makes it all so much more amazing. And that is because those particular drawbacks do mean that the driver has to work much harder to get the results we're seeing in the vide, so yes he's got a handful, all right.
