Watch Carl Thompson’s Lexus GS 300 Drift Machine

The video bellow features the competition debut of Carl Thompson’s Lexus GS 300 filmed at the NAC Drift Nationals in Hampton Downs this year.

However, despite its low stance, striped interior, rollcage, wide tires and side exhausts, this GS has something else under its hood instead of a modified 2JZ-GTE or 3UZ-FE V8 engine as it was expected.

No, this one got mad with a four-rotor nitrous and turbocharged Wankel engine, so hit the play button bellow and see it ripping the track and spitting flames.
