* The title character from ''Film/BabyDriver''. And he does it all while barely hearing, given he uses headphones to cover his tinnitus.



* One of Eggsy's skills before joining the agency in ''Film/KingsmanTheSecretService''. He hijacks a car and manages to elude the police by driving ''backwards'' effortlessly a few miles. He probably could've gone longer, too, had he not swerved out of the way to avoid hitting an animal.
* ''Film/{{Bullitt}}''.

* ''Film/{{Bullitt}}''.''Film/{{Bullitt}}'', to the point his pursuit of a bad guy is [[TropeCodifier the quintessential car chase]].



** Niki Lauda. Yes, he crashed and burned horribly, but they say he got back into the cockpit of a [[UsefulNotes/FormulaOne Formula 1]] racer when he was still smoking.

Added DiffLines:

* The orks of ''TabletopGame/Warhammer40K'': Each one is seven feet of BloodKnight, and their vehicles are as tough as they are, being cobbled together from looted vehicles or whatever bits and pieces of metal the mek had lying around (and still working, if not outperforming the original), and drive at breakneck speeds at minimum. There are orks considered batshit insane by other orks known as the Kult of Speed, who tend towards a "brakes are for cowards" mentality.

* Bunta Fujiwara from ''Manga/InitialD''. He can drift an 80's Corolla Hatchback at insane speeds. ''While lighting a cigarette''. ''[[EyesAlwaysShut WITH HIS EYES CLOSED]]''.

to:

* Bunta Being a manga about illegal street racing, ''Manga/InitialD'' is stocked full of these. There are three standout examples however
** The protagonist Takumi
Fujiwara is an 18-year old who has been drifting through the dangerous mountain passes of Akina since he was ''13''. Through [[TrainingFromHell rigorous training]] he has gained a near supernatural ability to control his car to the point that he regularly drifts ''just centimeters'' from ''Manga/InitialD''.guardrails in corners while maintaining perfect control of his car. Not only that, Takumi uses [[WhatAPieceOfJunk a heavily outdated Corolla sports model]] yet regularly beats opponents with much newer and more powerful cars. He only gets better over time and by the end of the series he can ''almost literally [[BlindDriving drive blind]]'' by turning off his headlights in the middle of the night to confuse opponents.
** Takumi's rival Keisuke Takahashi, while initially quite unexperienced, quickly catches up with Takumi and by the end of the series Takumi admits he isn't sure if he'd win if he was going up against Keisuke. Compared to Takumi who uses flashy signature moves and a driving style purely refined for mountain passes, Keisuke utilizes a more traditional circuit racing techniques and [[BoringButPractical more boring, but just as effective techniques]] combined with supreme tire management and pedal control. Keisuke also has great spatial awareness and at one point he taunts his opponent that blamed him for trying to cause a crash on a tight road where they were running side-by-side that he would have had at least 5cm of space to maneuver.
** Takumi's dad [[BadassGrandpa Bunta Fujiwara]] is quite possibly the best driver in the whole series.
He can drift an 80's Corolla Hatchback at insane speeds. ''While lighting a cigarette''. ''[[EyesAlwaysShut WITH HIS EYES CLOSED]]''.

* Scandinavians, in general. The Scandinavian countries are covered 5 to 7 months per year on snow and the countries are located between 55th and 70th latitudes of North, so the weathers can be truly awful, and distances between towns are long (with notable exception of Denmark). The [[HadToBeSharp driving conditions and climate]] simply weed out any unskilled drivers. Most Scandinavian cars are [[DrivingStick stick geared]], so [[BadassDriver Improbable Driving Skills]] come as an extra bonus.
