Get your driving gloves ready – the Nissan 1000bhp GT-R drift car video, which offers a soundtrack of an accelerating engine and screeching tires, was featured on the BBC TopGear website and is sure to whet your appetite for some heavy-duty drifting!
Powered by the roaring R35 twin turbo V6, or more accurately the VR38DETT to powertrain enthusiasts, and fitted with a HKS GT1000 turbo kit – 1000bhp are able to reach the back tires thanks to the Holinger six-speed rear wheel sequential transmission. So what does that mean? A whole lotta’ smoke, and a whole lotta’ fun as D1GP and Formula D champion Daigo Saito perfects the apex along the track as he gets ready for the 2015 Formula D season.
The smoke-breathing “Godzilla” car, due in part to the two added exhaust pipes, is a lighter version of the standard GT-R offering with the elimination of the front-end driveshaft and implementation of carbon fiber bodywork along the interior and exterior.
