This Luxury Lexus Is Turned Into a 1200-HP Monster for Drifting

Al-Futtaim, who represent Lexus in the United Arab Emirates, modified the luxury RC F, having turned it into a drift car.

The upgraded car with the prefix Carbon Kevlar in the name is intended for the drifting star Ahmad Daham, who will take part in the world championship at its wheel.

The tuners have worked hard on the coupe, because Lexus always adjusts the manufactured models for comfort and luxury, and these indicators are not important at all here. The main thing in drifting is power and maneuverability. Therefore, Al-Futtaim has equipped the model with an upgraded 3.0-liter Toyota 2JZ engine, which is capable of producing up to 1200 hp and 1464 Nm.

In order to achieve these indicators, the engine has been supplemented with a three-pump fuel system, a new turbocharger, a valve mechanism and a nitrous oxide injection system from Nitrous Express. The engine is paired with a four-speed sequential transmission.

Making the coupe more powerful was not the only task, it was also necessary to reduce its weight. To do this, some of the body elements were replaced with carbon-kevlar one, which allowed the car to lose extra 500 kg of weight. As a result, the weight of the car is 1250 kg. The tuners have also installed a new rear differential, racing calipers, Rays Engineering 57 CR wheels, and three-way racing coilovers.
