Drifting at full-throttle is exciting in any vehicle; the experience becomes beyond super-awesome when your drift car happens to be Ferrari’s fastest street-legal production vehicle currently made. This 740-horsepower V-12 packs a mind-blowing 509 lb-ft of torque at 6,000 rpm guaranteed to leave tires screaming as they run for their lives. This may explain why Ferrari provided an additional four sets of tires to auto journalist Chris Harris of EVO magazine and co-host of DRIVE for his driftcar excursion thru Europe’s most beautiful track, the Anglesey Race Circuit in Wales.
