The highly modified Lexus IS300 skidded across the icy surface in Saint-Ferdinand, Canada.
Videographer Keven St-Pierre, 27, joined the ‘Wide Open Drift Team’ for one final session at the end of the 2013 season as the team decided to take it for one last spin.
He said: “Every winter the team take the car apart to get it ready for the new season.
“I had the idea to do some sort of video on ice, so we took advantage of the fact that the car was in bad shape.”
He said: “We used stuff from the garage for obstacles and drilled hundreds of holes in each tyre and inserted winter screws that some ice racers use.
“Our only fear was that we would annoy the locals with our 500 horsepower motor.”
But Keven admitted that the vehicle sustained slightly more damage than expected.
He said: “We filmed it in three hours and we had three flat tyres with almost no spikes left.
“It all turned out great, except that shortly after there was rust everywhere under and inside the car due to the snow.”
