Cars with both their engines and driven wheels in the back are famously prone to the snap oversteer. Especially, as you can see from the video below, the Toyota MR2.

The affordable yet beloved mid-engined sports vehicle known as Mr. Two was made in three iterations between 1984 and 2007.

It is hard to tell from the footage, and it appears to have been captured (entirely from within the cockpit at night) in the second-generation model.

Regardless, each version packed the four-cylinder engine in the middle of the ridiculously short wheelbase that made its tail especially susceptible to sliding around without notice – the phenomenon known as Snap Oversteer, which was only exacerbated in this instance by wet road conditions.

Luckily, despite ostensibly applying too much throttle on the corner’s exit, this driver (in the Philippine capital region of Manilla) was able to save the vehicle from pirouetting straight into the wall (or other traffic).

So instead of the cringe-inducing, car-totaling disaster, we are left with a learning experience. Has no idea how lucky he was.
