Drifting is certainly enjoyable, but it should only be done in controlled areas; public roads are not the place to do it as many things can go wrong. Case at hand, this Nissan driver.

We recently found this video on Reddit and while it’s unclear exactly where it was filmed, it shows just how quickly things can get messy should you make a mistake while trying to drift.

As the driver of the Nissan, which appears to be 240SX from the late 1990s, approaches a right-hand bend, they head to the left and kick the tail out. However, moments later, they run out of space and the car hits the grass on the side of the road.

Despite the left wheels being the grass and one of the front wheels lifting off the ground, the driver continues to hold the drift, rather than letting off the throttle and trying to recover the car. Before long, they lose control and slide down a small embankment into a row of trees.

The video cuts off just as the 240SX approaches the trees. Regardless of whether or not the car needed some costly repairs after the incident, the driver, who we hope escaped with no injuries, has no doubt learned a lesson to not go drifting on public roads.

Bronco fans will have to wait a little longer to get behind the wheel of the highly-anticipated SUV, but it appears Ford isn’t done whipping up accessories for the model.

As you can see in this picture taken by a member of the Bronco6G forums, a prototype was spotted wearing a fastback-style soft top.

Little is known about the roof at this point, but what you see is presumably what you get. In this case, it’s a slightly sportier soft top with angular quarter windows and a rakish rear screen.

The roof likely draws inspiration from the aftermarket soft tops offered for the Jeep Wrangler and it does look a little nicer than the standard roof.

While there’s always the possibility this an aftermarket roof, Ford has already confirmed there will be more than 200 officially licensed accessories for the Bronco at launch. The company hasn’t revealed all of them yet, but the configurator lists Bimini roofs, tubular doors, auxiliary lights and a Warn winch – among other things. Ford has also noted these accessories can be rolled into vehicle financing agreements and installed by dealers.

Of course, we’ll likely have to wait a little longer to learn more about the roof as the Bronco’s launch was pushed back to the summer following coronavirus-related issues with suppliers. That’s unfortunate, but Ford is compensating customers and they could very well use that compensation to buy accessories for their Bronco.

Lamborghini’s Polo Storico division, which is charged with restoring some of the automaker’s finest cars ever, isn’t interested in perfection.

Since being established, Polo Storico has restored 98 classic Lamborghinis. Most take roughly 18 months and cost upwards of $450,000 to complete. Despite the time and money needed to restore a car through the program, Polo Storico boss Paolo Gabrielli cares more about mimicking how the car originally left the factory rather than making it perfect by modern-day standards.

“[The car] must be slightly imperfect, like it was,” he told CAN Luxury in a recent interview. “My task to you as a customer is to bring back the car as it was produced. If there are little defects that were present at the time, it’s fine with me.”

“To make a 100-percent perfect car, it’s easy, but if you want a perfect car, it’s not authentic. If your restored car has perfect, perfect paint, you are making a fake. It’s about the little details that are not perfect. At the time, they were not so precise on some details, because it just didn’t work like that,” he added.

Lamborghini’s restoration division is so committed to this philosophy that when reprinting original owners’ manuals, it doesn’t fix any of the spelling and grammatical errors of the originals.

According to Gabrielli, the fact that Lamborghini models of yesteryear were almost entirely constructed by hand means no two are identical. For example, bodies were shaped entirely by hand and hammered over a wooden mold, which would lead to imperfections.

Sourcing certain parts is also a big challenge, especially since many original suppliers have gone out of business. As such, Polo Storico will look to source unmolested vehicles and then reverse-engineer any part they may need. The division will even look up a vehicle’s production sheet to work out what car had what imperfections when it left the factory.

“To make a perfect car, it’s easy,” Gabrielli adds. “There’s no human touch, nothing. To recreate those hand-made surfaces, it’s much more difficult. And that’s the difference we make.”
