While we talked about the car earlier this year, we’re back on the topic to show you the contraption is alive and kicking drifting. The video below shows the NASCAR-hearted LFA pulling extreme slip angles through the woods.
In case you’re wondering about the name of the car playing the tandem drift car with the LFA, you should know this is the sideways racing incarnation of the Toyota Crown.
The numbers are enough to put a smile on that faceReturning to the V8 heart of the Lexus, we are talking about a TRD (Toyota Racing Development) unit that currently delivers a manic 750 hp. We’ll remind you the LFA’s 4.8-liter V10 delivers 553 hp, so we are talking about quite a step up here.
As always with these drift monsters, as long as you don’t pack 2,000 hp, you can never have too much power to pull you out of those slides. This means the LFA is still a work-in-progress project, with the rumour mill talking about a new upgrade that will arrive by the end of the year.
The new power level of the Lexus LFA? 1,000 hp. Yep, something like a twin-engine job, only focused on the rear axle alone. As for the soundtrack change, this is the topic of a debate, with enough people claiming the V10 had a sweeter voice.
