Ferrari Portofino Widebody Looks Like a Dangerous Drift Car

Even though rear-drive supercars are theoretically better for drifting, Lamborghinis have been more common targets for widebody conversions that make you think of D1. However, that's not to say we can't enjoy this Ferrari Portofino Widebody rendering.

The piece is created by Aksyonov Nikita, based on the latest "entry-level" Ferrari. Even though the Italians have stepped up their design game and have come up with amazing tech ideas, you don't see them getting the same kind of attention as Lambos or McLarens.

The cheapest Portofino is supposed to set you back $215,000. And while that's a lot of money for one car, we've seen the McLaren 600LT going as high as $320,000, so everything is as it should be.

The drift car transformation's central theme seems to be a sort of raw aluminum finish, like on some classic sports cars. This is in contrast with the plastic or carbon fiber you see on Liberty Walk or Rocket Bunny projects but makes sense considering the bolts holding the kit to the car have an aviation look.

There's also a giant front air splitter, though it's not like anything we've ever seen before. Meanwhile, the back features a giant wing that supports itself not from the top of the trunk, but from underneath the chassis. If anybody makes something like this, please make sure to let us know.

The sexy retractable hardtop roof is not part of this rendering, making this look like an extremely dangerous car to go fast in. But hey, with all those ground effects, rolling this Ferrari is probably impossible.

The only real Ferrari drift car is based on the 599, which is a pretty old V12 super-GT. So perhaps we should be looking at California instead. Though, with that 460 horsepower 4.3-liter under the hood, you'd be better off doing an LS or HEMI swap. By comparison, the Portofino's 3.9-liter makes a meatier 600 HP.
