When it comes to supercars like the Pagani Huayra BC, it takes a capable driver to get the most out of them. Japan’s Keichii Tsuchiya—who you might know better as Drift King (aka the founder of drifting)—is definitely someone you’d consider a capable driver. Tsuchiya will be behind the wheel of the special edition Huayra come the 2016 World Time Attack Challenge in Sydney, Australia, from October 14th to 15th. On each day he’ll be running what is being called a “full noise lap.” That means a full-out lap, right?
We sure as hell hope so, especially since we doubt Pagani will let Drift King do what he does best. The Huayra BC is a rare and expensive bird, with only 20 units set to be made. All of those are already sold, with each one commanding $2.63 million apiece. Powering this beast is an AMG-sourced 6.0-liter twin-turbo V12 engine making 789 horsepower and 737 lb-ft of torque. All that power goes to the rear wheels, which makes us wonder how in the world Tsuchiya will be able to resist taking the Huayra BC for a little slip and slide. Hopefully Pagani lets him do just that. We highly doubt that any of the automaker’s customers are as capable as Drift King behind the wheel (no offense).
