BMW shows off self-driving cars that can “drift” around bends

BMW Debuts World’s First Self-Drifting Car

BMW has shown off self-driving cars that can “drift” around bends and slalom between cones.

The modified 2-Series Coupe and 6-Series Gran Coupe are able to hurtle round a racetrack and control a power slide without any driver intervention.

Using 360-degree radar, ultrasonic sensors and cameras, the cars sense and adapt to their surroundings.

BMW demonstrated its latest autonomous driving technology at the Consumer Electronics Show (CES) in Las Vegas.
