Winter has put pretty much all of the hot cars in the Northeast in hibernation, so let’s all gawk at some NorCal drift cars going nuts in their cold.
This is the dumbest new car video I’ve seen in a long time and I love it so much.
Step one: become arguably the best drifter in the world and master every kind of traditional drift machine ever made. Step two: buy a Lamborghini.
Watch this video and decide for yourself.
I’m sure whatever you’re doing is important. But it’s not as important as watching a Lamborghini Murcielago and a new Ford Mustang tandem drift battle on deserted forest roads of Japan.
I guess I shouldn’t be surprised they made it out unscathed—these are two of the best drivers in the world.
When your 1,000 horsepower Hyundai drift car bursts into flames, it might be a good idea to come to a stop. Otherwise the circuit’s fire safety crew has to chase you down on track, as we can see here.
Norwegian Fredric Aasbø is the reigning 2015 Formula Drift champion, in America and in the World. He’s live on the site — ask him anything!
Does anyone understand the explosion of the international drift scene better than Fredric Aasbo, the Norwegian champion of America’s top drifting series? Ask him whatever you want tomorrow at 2PM EST.
2015 Formula Drift champion Fredric Aasbo will be here next week! You can ask him anything you want, though I’ll be most curious to know what it’s like to drive his gazillion-horsepower turbocharged four-cylinder, rear-drive Scion tC.
Your eyes do not deceive you. That’s a Lamborghini Murcielago going head to head with a Lexus LFA in a professional drift battle.
As this video shows, it was sideways in 1989 and it’s still sideways 26 years later.
Old Jags have a reputation for excellent handling, and that seems very much at play here. It’s a Jaguar XJ drift car!
“Loud, obnoxious, rowdy cars are inherently fun,” Tony Angelo tells me. “Doesn’t matter what it is. Doesn’t matter what year it was made. It doesn’t matter if it’s fuel injected or carbureted.”
As pointed out yesterday, you can drift anything with enough space and snow. Does this extend to RVs? Yes! Is it fast? No!
You might remember the Lexus LFA in Japan that was rescued from a flood and given a Toyota NASCAR V8 heart transplant. Here it is tandem drifting through the forest.
The swamp muck tourist trap Times Square is unquestionably the most crowded, busy, garbage place to take a car just about anywhere in the world. So we took this 500 horsepower “street car” built by professional drifter Ryan Tuerck there to see if it could handle it.
What if every time a car got sideways, it started zapping itself with beams of electricity, DeLorean-style?
Do you like skate vids? Do you like drift vids? Well, I have the quick edit just for you.
