Oh man, can't even begin to imagine how the owners let their cars be handled like this.

Having a lot of money or a lot of super cars is absolutely no excuse for these cars to be put to such treatment.

I don't get it, what is wrong with these videos, these are not track cars and can be perfectly well driven on roads and these guys are not like ramming the cars into walls.

Am I missing something?, I found the videos great. If you have spent that much money on such cars, I am sure you should be able to enjoy it.

I think what scorcher is trying to depict with his videos is that there's better ways to enjoy those exotics than thrash them around muddy, off road locations.
True, they work in the real world but where they belong is on the track.

Would you drive your Honda Civic in those places? I don't think so.

Spectacular driving and seems to be inspired by Ken Blocks Gymkhana.

Clearly you haven't been to Bombay during the monsoons.

I don't see anything wrong with driving these cars to the limit even if it is in some slushy European countryside - especially the UK, Eastern Europe and Northern Ireland that have unpredictable damp weather and countryside roads such as those in the videos.

Its a matter of personal choice (for both the owners and moaners). If they can afford to buy them and drive them this way, they can surely afford maintain them well (or not bother).

Here's a video of the Bentley being thrashed on TopGear recently.

I agree with you,even i loved the videos,i agree that these kind of roads are not meant for supercars but the road surface was good enough,in fact much better than most of the roads in india,and i dont think these antics would have caused any serious damage to the car apart from dirt and muck all around.
If the driver/owner is having fun, let it be

Yes agreed there are better ways to enjoy, but that is one perspective isn't it?.

They are in no ways thrashing the cars, that would mean permanently damaging the cars which the above guys are not doing. I believe a car is not an object to be kept in a museum and within limits of abuse a car can take anything and everything you do is OK.

And regarding a Civic, I happened to own one till January, I have driven it in places much much worse than the ones in the video and in an even harsher ways and By GOD man and machine came out unscathed.

And then there are guys like these who offer their services to those who can afford these supercars who've been a bit dirty

Then I suppose it's just me. I can't stand to have my car running on bad roads. I personally believe the cars are to be taken on roads they're meant for...but then again, each one has his/her take on 'bad' and 'roads'.
