    I checked out this car, and from the look of it, it looks like it is a pontiac GTO with a different styling package than the american model. and the pontiac GTO is a very driftable car. ( see formula D ). it seems they do this a lot in australia. they take an american model, slightly tweak the styling, and give it a new name.

    i love your example of furmula D and the GTO being very driftable...LOL!!!

    Rhys Millen spent more money on his car than anyone else including Sam Hubinette. that car only resembles a factory GTO, the car has gone through a rediculous amount of R&D and it still is just as good as the competition. Ryhs is a very good driver with a lot of experience coupled with the most expensive and manufacturer supported car in the series he pulls off the wins. the GTO is a piece of ****, you could drift it stock but apparently an expert driver feels that the car is better suite for drifitng when you change everything about the car.

    if rhys wasnt gettting the car for free i guarantee that he would be using something else.

    That's one of the funniest things I've heard all day! It's good to see you've done some research! :dunce:

    The GTO is infact an Australian car exported to the US, and it is the yanks who put on the extra plastic bits, and call it new model.

    General Motors Holden designed the Monaro, and built the chassis. The Americans liked the look of it, and decided if they put plastic bumpers on it, they can call it a new GTO.

    It seems they do that a lot in the US - take another model, slightly tweak the styling, and give it a new name...

    LOL perhaps he is still new to the drifting scene XD
    lol if the car has been drifted by the drift king...it is no longer unique...and i believe the drift king drifted both of those plenty of times

    Is drifting a Lotus Carlton 'unique'? The front of the car is exactly the same as an Opel Kadett.. And that was a sport hatch..

    AWD drifting, pretty hard to control, but a master, like me :sly: , could do it.. :tup:



    (The master thing, was a joke.. k?)

    Would you consider a Ginetta G4 as "unique?"

    yeah, I guess... as long as it's a good drift... but I'm thinking the thread looks for "weirder" cars ti be drifted... the Nike One, the Tank Car, and the like. The Ginetta is a funny car, handles great (except on the 'ring, where it's a bouncy bastard), but as far as being driftable? I dunno, let's see...

    Not really sure if it's unique or not but an MGF with stage 2 turbo, exhaust, stage 1 weight reduction, sports brakes and SM tyres is awesome to drift. It's the king of long and smokey drifts.
