Liberty Walk Lamborghini Murcielago Drift Car Tears It Up, Sounds Brutal

This Lamborghini is the kind of machine that makes the "separating boys from men" cliche worthy of revival. For starters, the sheer idea of turning a Murcie into a drift car is crazy enough, but the build we have here takes the concept to the next level.

You see, the Murcielago might be gaining popularity these days when new Lambos are easy to drive, but how can you work around its all-in, driver-busy handling and its not-that-brilliant visibility?

Well, apparently, you throw in a hydraulic brake to help correct your mistakes and a high-angle steering rack to please that crowd.

Heck, this isn't even the first Murcielago drift car. The Japanese first built such a machine three years ago and Formula Drift star Daigo Saito even used it in a battle against Vaughn Gittin Jr's RTR Mustang.

But the one we have here might just be more violent, at least if we judge by the headlight intake and the flames it spits while sliding - I've heard that, if you ask the driver nicely, he's sacrifice some points to make the thing spit fire while drifting. And since the dragony side of the machine comes out when the driver steps off the gas, but the sideways stuff requires the loud pedal to be pressed rather hard, this is one sweet conondrum.

However, it's worth noting that the slip angles seen in the promo video seem to show that the car still isn't ready to give up all its grip like a Formula Drift machine should. But perhaps the project hasn't been completed yet.

Now, if you happen to belong to the die-hard camp, you'll get over the thousand-mosquito drone sound polluting the Murcie's N/A scream in the first clipe below - keep in mind this was the last Lamborghini to use an engine architecture related to the original Bizzarrini V12.

However, there's always the second video, which adds some music to cover it all up. The choice is yours.
