What is it about a car sliding sideways (on a public road) that makes us all giddy inside? We think it’s the way the car seems to dance across the road almost effortlessly—sliding from one side to the other as if that’s what it was designed to do. Watching this film, shot in the mountains of eastern Norway, we see Fredrik Sorlie doing what he loves. And doing it well. Such talent behind both the wheel of that amazing JZX30 Cressida and the Phantom Red camera shooting those amazing shots highlights everything we love about cars.
Have you ever had an idea that just sits in the back of your mind for years? Nigel Petrie did. Six years ago he envisioned the perfect drift car. After three years of mentally working everything out and two and a half years of building, his idea became reality. With grit and determination, Nigel built what he wanted without any compromise or influence from the rest of the world. Unlike most modified drift cars, Nigel’s Ute was built from the ground up—every weld, cut, and bolt. See the love and care behind the build of an amazing drift car in a film by Matthew Cox.
