In Japan, McLaren MP4-12C GT3 Has Been Transformed Into A Drift Car 1




Japanese professional drifting driver Daigo Saito, who is known for his unusual projects based on classic and modern sports cars adapted for driving in a controlled drift, showed a new drift car. This time the model was based on the racing McLaren MP4-12C GT3 — the ring model was adapted for drift due to minimal modifications. And anyone who has enough money to rent a car can take a ride on this unusual British sports car. Because the drift car was built for a car rental service.

The customer of the unusual car was the company Arios, which specializes in car rental in Japan. It is not reported how the racing car turned out to be in the hands of the company, but as a result, the founder of the rental office Hirokazu Suzuki received a sports car prepared by the McLaren factory for ring racing, which he sent to the Fat Five Racing company.

The atelier founded by Daigo Saito is known for the construction of drift cars. The technical improvements of the car — the racing MP4-12C GT3 is equipped with a 500-horsepower 3.8-liter V8 with a 6-speed gearbox — are not reported.

It is known that the company’s specialists modified the suspension by increasing the angle of rotation of the front wheels and also installed a hydraulic handbrake. Earlier, for drift Daigo Saito built Lamborghini Murcielago, classic Nissan Skyline GT-R generation KPGC10, as well as many Toyota models — from GR Supra to GR Yaris and the new GR 86.
