Datsun 260Z - drift silhouette

The Driftworks feature on this 260Z suggests that it's 'the most beautiful drift car ever', and it's hard to argue with that. It's effectively a silhouette, with every panel being hand-crafted from fibreglass, unique aero tweaks accentuating the sumptuous curves of the Japanese E-Type. The level of detail is impressive; the side-view colour scheme evokes the Japanese flag, the cooling vents were inspired by the Alfa Romeo 33 Stradale, and the B-pillars have been removed to clean up the coupe's profile.
You can see the beginnings of the project here, with further developments here, here and here.
