VIDEO: Meet the Hypercar Hoon

One man who's not afraid to use his toy cupboard hard

Hypercar hoon

Those that tend to buy high-end hypercars and supercars don't tend to drive them especially enthusiastically.

Sure, there will be the odd acceleration squirt or punt on a twisty road, but the majority lead fairly sheltered lives. Honestly, we can't really blame the owners; if we'd dropped the best part of a million bucks (or more) on the latest weapon, we're not sure we'd want to risk it either!

Thankfully, not everyone is like that. Meet the Hypercar Hoon. That's obviously not his real name, he goes by the name Powerslide Lover on his YouTube channel.

Whatever his real name, he is an absolute legend, with driving skills that more than match his incredibly large bank balance.

You can find his channel here but we've selected a few of his greatest moments to give you an idea of why we like this guy so much.

Number 1: drifting your LaFerrari like a Toyota AE86 - just, y'know, because you can

Number 2: Scandinavian flicking your 520kW Abt-tuned RS6 around like a WRC hero.

Number 3: Hot-lapping the Nurburgring in a 991 GT3, and setting a lap time less than 15 seconds slower than the official factory drivers.

Other videos include lapping Monza in the wet in a 458 Speciale, chasing a 918 Spyder in your LaFerrari at a wet Spa-Francorchamps, and doing a back-to-back test between a Ferrari FF, Audi RS6 and Porsche 911 Turbo in the snow. Enjoy.
