** [[InvertedTrope Inverted]] with a Mercedes-Benz [[PopTheTires sans its tires, which have been shot to pieces]], in ''Film/{{Octopussy}}'', where Bond has to catch up with a circus train. [[ThisIsGonnaSuck Cue train approaching from the opposite direction]]. He, naturally, makes the jump before the inevitable collision. [[CaptainObvious Mercedes-Benzes are not frequently made in track gauges]], so the special effects crew had to improvise one.
** ''Film/GoldenEye'': The particularly memorable "tank chase" is one of the stronger examples, with Bond chasing after the DamselInDistress in a "Model T" (a Russian T-series heavy tank, that is). [[spoiler:Extra style points for lifting a memorial statue, sticking it in an overhang, and crushing some cars on his tail.]] That the guy he's chasing is in a small Soviet-bloc car just makes it even more [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=oMX7_z4ixFQ awesome]].
* ''Film/TheItalianJob2003'' features some particularly shiny Mini Coopers navigating through buildings like some parkour maniac. The cars used were heavily modified to withstand the highly atypical driving conditions.
* ''Film/TheItalianJob1969'', with Michael Caine, has ''even better'' Mini car-fu of this nature, including a scene where the cars can be seen driving over the roof of the local Fiat factory.
* The souped-up steam train from ''Film/BackToTheFuturePartIII''.
* Herbie in ''Film/HerbieFullyLoaded'', most especially the final NASCAR racing sequence where the anthropomorphic Volkswagen was seen climbing onto the fence above the wall, trying to avoid being trade-painted.
* ''Film/{{Battleship}}'' manages to do it with... well, a ''battleship'', thanks to creative application of the anchor. This maneuver is called [[https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Anchor#Club_hauling club hauling]] and was used in the age of sail to turn in a small radius. Using it on a battleship at flank speed would probably just drag the anchor.
* In ''Film/FastAndFurious6'', the heroes are driving their usual muscle cars when they suddenly discover that their opponent is driving a tank.
* Indian film ''Alluda Mazaaka...!'' has a rather famous one where the lead character, portrayed by [[MemeticMutation India's Chuck Norris]], Chiranjeevi slides his horse under a truck. Yes, you read that right, he [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=gfoaogJN_pw slides a horse]]!

** An [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-wKfpPrRVIo episode]] involved Jeremy Clarkson in a Land Rover Sport attempting to outmanoeuvre a ''[[CoolTank Challenger 2]]''. He failed. The episode showcased the tank's smokelaunchers, manoeuvrability, speed and ability to handle rough terrain. And it was [[CrowningMomentOfAwesome awesome]]. However, Clarkson managed to survive for a full five minutes, by weaving around forests where the tank could not get a good shot on him. And that was with Challenger's crew having the handicap that they could only use it's main gun's sight to draw a bead on Clarkson's Land Rover, not any of it's co-axial, pintle or turreted mounted machine guns.

There are also trucks and buses, but they drift poorly due to their enormous sizes and weights, [[CrowningMomentOfFunny but once you've modified]] [[CrowningMomentOfAwesome and mastered them...]]

** A [[https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Slip_(aerodynamics) slip]] is an aircraft maneuver in which you turn your plane diagonally into the wind without changing your direction of travel. It ends up looking like [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=jVvt7hP5a-0 a mid-air drift.]]

* In the "car that you wouldn't expect to drift, but it can" category, there's a new thing in Japan called "PVC drifting". Small, front wheel drive ''kei'' cars (econoboxes with tiny engines) are fitted with PVC rings made from large aquarium pipes. The result is some [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=yswpG4GuDXI pretty impressive drifts from cars that have no business doing so]].


* Despite being a game that makes strenuous efforts toward realism to the point where its engine has been used for actual military training simulations, ''OperationFlashpoint'' lets you pull this off in any tank, assuming you can reach a sufficiently high speed, due to tank treads apparently having significantly less grip than they do in RealLife.

* The recent flight-combat game ''Videogame/{{HAWX}}'' gives the player the ability to drift ''fighter jets'' in mid-air. However, the ability differs from jet to jet. Slowpokes like the MiG-21 Fishbed can barely hold a drift, while the SU-37 Terminator can ''flip in mid-air.''

** TheMovie goes well beyond "just" drifting tanks, giving us things like tanks making sick jumps (off of another tank in one case), a tank skipping across a river, a tank chase on a roller coaster track, tanks climbing a model mountain...
