Drifting Around A Junkyard Looks Like The Most Fun You Can Have In A 370Z

Drifting

Ken Block would be proud of this dazzling display of precision driving.

It’s hard not to be awed by the driving skills displayed by professional drifters. One man who knows a thing or two about opposite lock is Formula Drift champion Chris Forsberg, who recently demonstrated his enviable sideways driving skills in a heavily modified Nissan 370Z. But unlike in Formula Drift which takes place on a clear track, Forsberg turned a junkyard into an automotive playground. Ken Block would be proud of this dazzling display of car control, as Forsberg throws the car around obstacles and makes it all look easy.

Thanks to some modifications from Fast Intentions, the V6 powering the 370Z has been bored out to 4.2 liters and fitted with a pair of turbochargers among other upgrades to produce 1,000 horsepower. The video is aptly called Proximity to promote NOS energy drink, and it’s one of the best showcases of precision driving we’ve seen in a long time.

That's very high praise considering we recently saw Ken Block attack Pikes Peak in Climbkhana. The location may not be as exotic as some of the backdrops we’ve seen in Gymkhana videos, but the driving skill is masterful as Forsberg slides around junk cars and crates with inches to spare. And if you’re wondering why the modified sports coupe keeps smashing through plates that explode and shower the 370Z with colored dust, the stunt was inspired by the Hindu Holi festival according to Speedhunters which celebrates spring using colored powder. The plates were filled with shades of dust matching the Nissan’s livery, creating a spectacle that stands out against the surrounding scrap metal in the junkyard.
