Watch This Lamborghini Murcielago Drifter Destroy Tires And Spit Flames

Formula Drift Japan is home to some of the most remarkable drift cars on earth, and the following clips showcase one of the finest.

What you’re looking at is a Lamborghini Murcielago that has been extensively modified for drifting competition. Its interior has been stripped out, it features a special black and orange paint scheme and sports a widebody kit from Liberty Walk. Moreover, it features a bespoke exhaust system that ensures it spits flames, which sure makes it even more fascinating to watch.

There’s no doubt this Murcielago means business as not only does it feature all the necessary parts for a drift car but even has an air intake in place of one of its headlights and also sports a massive rear wing.

This is far from the only high-priced piece of Italian exotica that we’ve come across on the drifting circuit. Formula Drift star Daigo Saito has previously competed in a Ferrari F430, a Ferrari 599 GTB and a Lamborghini Murcielago of his own, while over in the U.S., one of the most radical Formula Drift cars, the Toyota GT4586, is owned by Ryan Tuerck. As the name implies, it is a Toyota GT86 with the 4.5-liter naturally-aspirated V8 engine out of a Ferrari 458 Italia.

Using such exotic and expensive cars (and engines) in drift cars may seem like not the wisest choice, since drivers spend their days sliding past walls at high speed and oftentimes they make contact, resulting in some very costly repair bills. However, drifting is not just about getting sideways but also making a statement – and that’s where cars like this Murcielago come into their own.
