You have seen the video of drift legend Vaughn Gittin Jr. drifting a Ford F-150 Raptor around the Nurburgring in Germany right? Wait, you haven’t? Well lucky for you the team that put the original film together has released even more footage. There’s now the original cut, an extended directors edition, and a behind-the-scenes video. Seriously, we can’t get enough of it.
The story goes like this… Vaughn travels to Germany with the intent to drift his Ford Mustang RTR around the famous race circuit. Weather had a different idea. With the Mustang shoot rained out the team, instead of scrapping the day, pulled out a Ford F-150 Raptor and sent Vaughn on his merry way.
Being ever the skeptics that we are, we can’t help but wonder just what the team was doing with a Raptor in Germany to begin with, and if this wasn’t planned (or at least a back up plan) the entire time. Either way, the video is a fun and fresh take on traditional drift and Ring videos that us truck folks quickly grow tired of watching. It’s just a bummer the Raptor doesn’t sound more like the Mustang… because man that Raptor sounds awful!
Check out the videos and a ton of behind-the-scenes photos below!
