Rather, this is what happens when you put Vaughn Gittin Jr.’s Formula Drift Mustang on Barcelona’s F1 circuit. Turns three and four, all 3,200 feet of them, linked and shredded.

I have a huge obsession with super tight and gnarly tandem battles in busted up old Nissans, but this kind of flat-out, high-speed monstrous pro drifting is unreal and completely mesmerizing to watch.

As a reminder: these pro drift builds are basically nine-second drag cars that go left and right. They’re like circle track cars built out of production vehicles. They’re the most powerful stock-chassis road racing cars on the planet. Vaughn’s old car ran 800 horsepower and it was a middle-of-the-pack contender.


The new independent rear suspension car is even more of a beast.
