This Lexus LFA is a drift car. I repeat: a drift car!

Yoichi Imamura is running this car in Japan’s D1GP this year. The car has been widened, and the ultra high-strung Yamaha V10 has been pulled in favor of a more durable TRD V8 originally built for stock car duty, as Wrecked Magazine explains.

Why is it that the craziest builds these days all seem to be drift cars?
