Selling a car is typically neither fun nor easy. If barely broken in with a few thousand miles or so, odds are you will find a buyer. Many, many, many moons have passed since the car in the video below was barely “broken in”. To be honest, people have likely lived and died in that space of time. For most of us, “selling” such a prize probably includes leaving it unlocked, with the doors open, the engine running and keys in the ignition in a not-so-great part of town.

Be it luck, skill, or a tremendous amount of both, the driver in the WRX STI below is one of the few who live to tell the tale. When his Subaru gets very backwards at enormous speed, he keeps complete composure and delivers some of the finest car control YouTube has ever seen. Forget James Bond. This is how driving is really meant to be done:
