Rocket Bunny Sileighty

As dedicated drift machines go, they don't get a lot more serious than this. It's a Nissan Sileighty (Silvia front, 180SX rear) which has been almost fully spaceframed, with overall weight obsessively pared back; the windows are polycarbonate, the front and rear bumpers turned into all-in-one clamshells, and there are carbon-fibre and fibreglass panels aplenty. It's got a super-wide track to keep it planted while the SR20DET doles out its 400+bhp, boosted by a distinctly agricultural Holset turbo (whose flame-spitting wastegate exits through the bonnet). Oh, and it's street legal, so its owner can power sideways to the shops on his special Maxxis drift tyres. Nice.
