They're Drifting Ferraris

It’s no surprise that most drifters are broke ex-skaters in janky old Nissans. It’s a cheap motorsport, at least comparatively. But drifting is getting ever-higher profile, and that means more and more expensive cars are going sideways. That is to say they’re out here drifting Ferraris.

Formula Drift professional/full-time New Hampshirite Ryan Tuerck got behind the wheel Daily Driven Exotics’ widebody Ferrari 458 and F430 Scuderia over in Vancouver recently, shredding as much tire as he could. Neither car looked particularly easy to get into genuine flickable transitions, but Tuerck seemed to do pretty well in the older Scuderia.

ZwingFilms also shot the day.

And at D1GP a whole train of Ferraris attempted drifting. Some were again reasonably successful. Others we not. The F40, for instance, seemed to refuse any kind of drift treatment.

How long until someone gets their hands on, I don’t know, a Ferrari 400i and goes full hot rod on it?
