The Datsun 280ZX was known for being more of a cushy personal luxury coupe with questionable styling than a legit performance car. That’s what you might think, anyway. This is because you’ve never seen one built into a mad tight drift car, yo.

This video comes from a freestyle drift challenge in Oman, of all places. And it’s fantastic. Watch it and view the 280ZX in a different light.
