Videos: Pro Rally Driver Rhys Millen Drifts A Hellcat Through Cape Town

What happens when you combine a fast car with completely deserted city streets? You get one giant big boy version of a playground. Now add Dodge’s supercharged 707 horsepower 2015 Challenger SRT Hellcat to that mix. Awesome right?

Then just to kick it up on more big notch, add professional rally and drift driver Rhys Millen, four helicopters, a bunch of heavy-duty chain and a huge floating hockey rink shaped parking lot. Have we lost you yet? Now combine all of the previously listed items, throw them all together and then unleash the Hellcat onto that parking lot; hundreds of feet up in the air above the city of Capetown, South Africa! The results are mind blowing and just simply bad ass! Sounds pretty crazy hey?

Pennzoil released the video you’ll see below a while back. It’s simply titled “Raising Hell: Pennzoil Airlift Drift”. It blew the minds of everyone that viewed it so we had to share it!

For anyone that wants a peek into the behind-the-scenes footage for the commercial, check out this! In case you don’t know, it’s pretty apparent in the video that the Hellcat Challenger isn’t really drifting hundreds of feet above the city, but it’s cool to see all the on-street drifting and stunt driving was real!
