Driftn in Style

Hey why not. Love them seats.

People have been doing unseemly and uncouth things with Silver Shadows for generations. A privateer even entered one into the 1970 London-Mexico World Cup rally, which annoyed Rolls-Royce no end. But drifting? Now that's quite a statement...
This car was built by UK outfit Z Cars for top drift looper Shane Lynch (yes, him off Boyzone), with the interior reworked by Project Kahn to fuse a bizarre mix of the luxurious and the competition-oriented. It's running Air Lift’s new 3H air-ride system, which explains how those wide steels sit so cosily within the extended arches, and the body's been extensively smoothed and simplified. Power-wise, it's all as R-R intended; the 6.7-litre V8 remains, as does the stock gearbox, although this has been tightened up with a JW shift kit and B&M Pro Ratchet shifter. Probably the coolest element of the thing, though, is the custom billet handbrake lever. Just look at the bloody size of the thing!
Mad car. Totally bonkers. We should all be very glad that this exists.
