Drag racing on the street is one of the stupidest things you can do, and the more power your car has, the more dangerous it becomes. A BMW M4 CSL driver in the US recently found this out the hard way.

Perhaps wanting to show off his driving skills and the performance of the M4 CSL, the BMW driver lined up next to the Dodge Charger driver for a race on what looked like a suburban road.

The BMW driver and the Dodge driver passed several spectators. As the speed increased, the BMW began to lose traction.

The driver of the M4 CSL appears to hold the throttle until he hits a large bump in the road. This seems to immediately throw the rear of the car off balance and it jumps to the right. The driver can’t correct the skid and the BMW crosses the road and swerves into the right lane. The rear of the car spins and the M4 slides to the left, hitting a curb and smashing something.

We haven’t found any photos or videos of the aftermath of the crash, but it’s likely that the car was badly damaged. That’s a shame, because production of the M4 CSL is limited to just 1,000 units. However, if the car ends up in a scrapyard, someone might buy it and try to save it.
