Over the weekend, the one-off Lamborghini Murcielago drift car made its competitive debut at the D1GP Tokyo Drift event driven by Daigo Saito. Also at the event was a very special Lexus LFA drift car and during a tandem run, the two hit the track side-by-side making for a truly remarkable scene, captured here by Larry Chen of Speedhunters.

The Lexus LFA drifter is driven by Yoichi Imamura and rather than the LFA’s standard 4.8-litre V10, this LFA utilises a TRD NASCAR engine reportedly delivering up to 1000 hp to the rear wheels. It also makes use of a quick shifting dog box and due to the LFA’s rarity, is quite possibly the world’s most expensive drift car.

Before being turned into a track-tuned monster that burns through tyres with ease, this LFA was flood damaged and destined for the scrap yard.

As for the Murcielago drifter, it maintains the 6.2-litre V12 of the street car but now pumps out 650 hp. It is also rear-wheel drive and features an overtly aggressive widebody kit.
