It isn't a kit car
As much as drifting is associated with fire-spitting tyre immolators, it’s also known as a sport that features near demolition derby-like crashes, bashes and smashes. Drift cars routinely come into the pits looking as if they’d just been cast in the sequel to Mad Max: Fury Road.
As such, you’d likely come to the conclusion that it wouldn’t be in a team’s financial interest starting with a real-deal $200,000 supercar. Yet, that’s exactly what Federico Sceriffo and his team at FFF Drifting Department did. Under the fantastically gorgeous body, and intertwined with a Formula Drift-spec roll cage, sits a real Ferrari 599 GTB Fiorano.
