    What do you think of the new Daigo's projects?

    They say a picture is worth 1000 words but this image of a dismantled Lamborghini Murcielago set to become a drift car has my speechless. Once I reported that this build was happening last month I didn’t know what to think or do other than heading to Kayak.com and looking for a flight deal to Japan this year so I can see this drift car in person. Part of me has still struggled with the reality that this drift build could be happening in the first place. That doubt comes to me regardless of my very reliable sources who have continued to confirm that this is his D1GP plan. Well, inside Daigo Saito’s million dollar+ drift shop they have started dismantling the Lamborghini in preparation for the upcoming D1 Grand Prix season. Here goes nothing?


    Daigo Saito to Drive Ferrari F430 at Formula Drift Japan : Breaking Drift News

    I don’t even know if I really believe Daigo Saito and all his rumors/nonsense for 2015 at this point. First, he unveiled plans to drive a Lamborghini in D1GP which I thought was completely insane. Now, it looks like he is set to repurpose this Ferrari F430 track car into a drift machine. No idea how he intends to do this within the spirit of the Formula Drift rulebook. On top of all that……. he is bringing an insane Nissan GT-R to America that will run the season on a 21 inch tire. I almost don’t know what to think anymore….. but he is single handidly keeping the 2015 season interesting in case you think nobody else in the sport is.

    Interesting, but will it be competitive??

    Not a great deal of money in the sport either, so you'd hope he's got deep pockets to run cars like that.

    I guess it could be interesting to see how it turns out, since it's Daigo behind the wheel
