Most of us wouldn’t even think of driving that fast on a mountain road that narrow and winding, especially with a drop so steep that by the time you hit the bottom, there’ll be nothing left but recyclable metal.

The Chevrolet Corvette C6 you see in this video is built and driven by Matt Field, with 7.0-litres of American V8 madness strapped to a supercharger and fed with nitrous oxide to produce 1,050 hp.

The video not only demonstrates acute drifting prowess that will put even Mr Block on the edge of his bucket seat but is also a showcase of aerial photography being pushed to the absolute limits. I mean, have you seen a drone car chase scene this dramatic?
