Nissan GT-R Drift Car with Exposed Rear-Mounted Turbos Rendered, Should Happen

While print media is making efforts for a spectacular comeback, the internet won't let paper return without a fight. Nowadays, one of the massive benefits of the world wide web comes from the rendering subculture.
Whenever a carmaker introduces a juicy new model, pixel masters need less than 24 hours to come up with racecar or roof-down digital incarnations of the contraption.

Then we have the extreme renderings, such as the one you see above, which inspire us to go deep down the custom car rabbit hole. The image we have here belongs to the stratosphere of the GT-R tuning subculture. We're talking about a drift machine, one that comes with a rather unusual turbo setup.

With the rear bumper having been removed, perhaps in an encounter with a wall, we can now see the rear-mounted turbos, as well as the delicious exhaust piping.

The location of the turbos is obviously a big thing, with this detail separating the various GT-R builds aiming for the quarter mile world record. For instance, maintaining the factory whereabouts will limit the size of your chargers, but the turbos can be mounted in the nose of the car, as a rear setup is not without its drawbacks.

Oh, and let's not forget the visible rear diff, a feature that has been grabbing attention in racecars for quite some time now.

The 1s and 0s manipulation comes from British artist Khyzyl Saleem, whose creations we featured on many occasions. This is the kind of Photoshop play (coming from a skilled hand, that is) which can easily inspire a real build.

And with those i'm-soo-unimpressed taillights, this extreme Godzilla would have a very good time showing its naked posterior on the track.

Now, did the EPA say something about making street vehicle-based racecars illegal, or was it just us having a little nightmare?

In his quest to bring you the most impressive automotive creations, Andrei relies on learning as a superpower. There's quite a bit of room in the garage that is this aficionado's heart, so factory-condition classics and widebody contraptions with turbos poking through the hood can peacefully coexist.
