For all future lovers, Back to the future is a cult movie.
Stanford Ph.D. students have designed this electric self-driving DeLorean that is able to drift at high speed on a racecourse. A tribute to the DeLorean, Marty's car in the famous movie.
Rallye drivers are seriously wondering in the video if their job is at risk!
More seriously, the project is not just anecdotical. It might be very useful to improve the behavior of self-driving cars on icy or slippery roads.
