Buy an Aussie Drift Heavyweight

If you are in the market for a top shelf Aussie drift car currently you are in luck!


The current Australian Drifting Grand Prix championship winning 350Z of Rob Whyte and Australian Drifting’s Godfather Danny ‘Denzo’ Vahoumis’s meal deal 1JZ powered S15 Silvia are up for grabs.

Rob Whyte 350Z


Rob is only providing detailed info via Private Message on Facebook to those serious but the car has a supercharged VQ35HR engine, pumps out 450hp and lots of torque’s at 14PSI and runs on E85. The car utilises carbon parts, a comprehensive weld in safety cage and I am sure a shopping list as long as the Silvia below.

Notes: “I built the car using mostly new parts from japan it makes around 300kw at the wheels with more in it if you need , it’s tuned for E85 and has plenty of torque , built for drift but could also make a good circuit car , hardly used since it was built very fast and reliable , I have built many cars over the years and this car is cheap”


Considering the Team CTS 180SX was only recently bought by Christian Pickering, it is a hot time for serious drift car’s on the market in Australia. It will be interesting to see to who and where they end up and if they continue to remain in the drift scene. Let’s hope so.
