900 HP N/A Lamborghini Huracan Drift Car Purging Its Nitrous Sounds Amazing

Yesterday, we talked about the 900 horsepower Lamborghini Huracan drift car that pro drifter Mad Mike Whiddett get to play with this year. And watching that Sliding Bull doing its thing at the Goodwood Festival of Speed gave me the feeling that the build captures the essence of the Huracan.
You see, in its factory form, the V10 monster managed to looks just as fast standing still as it does when flying past at triple-digit speeds. And it looks like the newfound anger of this drift build does the same - allow me to elaborate using the two pieces of footage at the bottom of the page.

These are short clips that have been captured earlier today, when the Kiwi drifter stunned the audience at the high-octane garden party.

The first shows the machine basically doing one of the things it was built to: tearing up its rear tires as if it was a smoke machine. And, of course, this is the kind of stunt that will see one's jaw heading towards the floor, soundtrack an all.

As for the second, the clip allows us to zoom in on the Huracan while this is parked. Nevertheless, what happens when Mad Mike hits the nitrous purge button is just as impressive as the adventure mentioned above.

Oh, yes, I forgot to mention - the nitrous system is part of the goodies that allow the 5.2-liter engine to jump from the factory output of 580 horses (this started out in life as a Huracan RWD) to around 900 ponies, according to its driver.

Keeping the V10 naturally aspirated was the one condition Sant'Agata Bolognse had when giving this project car its blessing. And with so many supercharger and twin-turbo builds out there (some are more special than others, though) the N/A take deserves a massive round of applause.
