This viral clip with seven million views shows a woman driver expertly drifting in her minicar and doing a perfect 180-degree stunt turn to merge into the opposite lane like something out of a movie.
Dashcam footage from the crowded city centre of Zhongshan in South China’s Guangdong Province shows motorists stopped at the lights when the woman slides into view.
The hugely popular video, which has attracted hundreds of comments, shows the woman’s Zoyte Auto E200 suddenly veering to the left for no apparent reason.

The small car does the 180-degree drift and ends up stopping right behind traffic in the opposite lane like a stunt out of a movie.
It was later confirmed that the woman, who was not named, had performed the manoeuvre on purpose.
However, Zhongshan police said in a statement on 25th January that the woman had been summoned, and that she would be charged with dangerous driving.
It is still unclear how much she will be fined – or where she learnt her driving skills.
