Video is lame as shit, but still impressive.
But the car that recently set a drifting world record is no ordinary Nissan GT-R. Tuned to 1380 horsepower and converted to send all that power to the rear wheels only, this highly modified machine is now in the Guinness Book of World Records for performing a drift at 189 mph.
Japanese drift champion R. Masato Kawabata was behind the wheel for the stunt that was performed on the 1.9-mile-long airstrip at the Fujairah International Airport in the United Arab Emirates. The record-breaking drift was set at 305 kmh (189 mph) with the car at a 30-degree angle. That speed smashes the previous record of 135 mph set by Polish driver Jakub Przygonski in a specially prepared Toyota GT86 drift car.
