Unveiled! Daigo Saito Lamborghini Murcielago Drift Car

8 Replies

The world’s top ranked drifter and the only person to win Formula D and D1 GP titles, Daigo Saito, unveiled a very special car at Osaka Drift today.

Saito displayed his new Lamborghini Murcielago drift car at the latest round of the D1 GP championship in Japan. The car, complete with Liberty Walk body kit, will replace his now legendary 1,000 kg / 1,000 bhp JZX100 Toyota Chaser, which he uses for events in his home country.

The car has an incredible presence and RMS just happened to be in the right place at the right time to bring you these pictures, straight from Mashima Sports Island.

And I thought he was mad when he unveiled his R35! He's just done the complete opposite to what you expect, an expensive, rare, mid engined, notoriously tricky to drive on the limit car and he's going to drift at the tight, and tricky tracks in Japan. Not wise.

So Saito wins D1 GP at Tokyo, but not in the Lamborghini.
