Following up its spectacular Hellcat drift video last spring, Pennzoil is back with a new “Joyride” film for us to enjoy.
In the previous “Joyride,” Pennzoil conscripted professional drift maniac Rhys Millen to tear around the streets of Cape Town, South Africa in a banana-yellow Dodge Challenger SRT Hellcat. The footage was loud, pretty, and ended with the Hellcat doing a few donuts and drifting around a cleverly CGI’d strip of tarmac airlifted by four helicopters. It wasn’t real, but it sure was fun to watch.
Now, “Joyride” is back, with a car that carries a bit more sophistication. The Ferrari 488 GTB is just as yellow as the Hellcat, and it haswith a 3.9-liter twin-turbocharged V-8 spitting out 661 hp. A seven-speed dual-clutch transmission sends the prodigious power to the rear wheels, resulting in a 0-60 mph scramble in a scant 3.0 seconds flat, on its way to a top speed of 205 mph.
Millen is behind the wheel once again, and sets a blistering pace through the streets of Barcelona. The Ferrari makes quite the beautiful racket as it slithers through a series of tunnels and streets, Millen leaving a wake of billowing tire smoke and exhaust flames.
While the film doesn’t end on quite the same dramatic note as the “Airlift Drift,” the Ferrari visuals are just as nice.
Take a look at the new “Joyride” Ferrari video above, and the older Hellcat film below.
