LaFerrari Aperta Drift Car Rendering Shows We Still Don't Have a Ferrari Drifter

Even if we're talking about the car landscape from a few years ago, it would've been difficult to imagine that 2016 would be a year when we'd get to enjoy a Rolls-Royce drift car, but not a Ferrari sliding machine.
Despite the slip angle sport having taken over the world (here's to hoping the Pokemon Go madness is temporary), to the best of our knowledge, nobody has built a Ferrari drift car so far.

Sure, we have Ryan Tuerk, with the Formula D athlete currently waiting for his next car, a Ferrari V8-engined Toyobaru, to be completed. And we've also shown you a Ferrari 360 that has been turned into a drift car in Japan.

But none of these vehicles are the real deal. While the first example mentioned above needs no explanation, when it comes to the 360, this is missing two essential components of an all-out drifting machine - we'll start with the hydraulic handbrake and if this would be relatively easy to install, we can't say the sake about a steering system that would allow for the kind of extreme angles required by sideways competitions.

While we can't leave the office to buy a Fezza and turn it into a Sliding Horse, we're here to deliver the next best thing, namely a mind-blowing rendering showing such a machine.

Coming from digital artist Javier Oquendo, the pixel rearrangement uses the perfect Ferrari as its topic, namely the LaFerrari Aperta. And we're not saying this thanks to the boost-implying strategies the driver of such a drift tool could use.

Instead, the LaF Aperta is a vehicle that has seen Ferrari stepping out of its comfort zone and making a step towards the fans out there. We'll remind you that, after a spy video had revealed the canvas top of the Aperta, Maranello was forced to deliver a few photos of the car, with an oops moment in the press release helping us figure out the monster hybrid would be called Aperta, not Spider.

P.S.: As drifting fans among you have noticed, the Viper next to the LaFerrari is real and we're talking about Dean "Karnage" Kearney's track-destined pride and joy.
