Ever since the final conception of the new Toyota 86, aka Scion FR-S or Subaru BRZ, tuners and true automotive enthusiasts have placed their crosshairs on this new inexpensive sports car waiting to see what it is truly capable of. It is no doubt that the new “86”, FR-S or BRZ has quite a bit of potential for tuners, but what about those who are serious about drifting?

The new Scion FR-S, Toyota 86 and Subaru BRZ were designed with the heart of the infamous AE86 Corolla at hand. Because of that, there should be no problem when it comes to going sideways in the new Toyota sports car even in stock form, as the video below demonstrates. The guys taking the Toyota 86 sideways take it a step further by drifting side-by-side another Toyota 86 in this epic drifting battle video below. Enjoy!

Video: Turbo Scion FR-S Caught Drifting at Laguna Seca 4

It is a rather inevitable that we would see the new Scion FR-S, along side of the Subaru BRZ, on the Formula Drift circuits burning up the rear tires. Considering that most Formula D vehicles have a substantial amount of power, the Scion FR-S and Subaru BRZ’s powerplant in its stock form just isn’t going to suffice when it comes to competitive drifting. Motor Trend seems to have captured the Scion FR-S in a turbocharged flavor making rounds at Laguna Seca by what is speculated to be the Scion drift team.

Strapping a turbo onto the 2.0-liter boxer engine in the Scion FR-S makes perfect sense for drifting and for enthusiasts who await “more power” from Toyota and Subaru’s new hot rear-wheel-drive coupe before they pull the trigger on buying one. Could this be the turbo version of the Scion FR-S that will make its way to production? We can only hope so. Can’t wait to see what comes of this Turbo Scion FR-S “testing”, which Motor Trend has captured on video posted below.

Rhys Millen is “The Driver” in Hyundai Genesis Coupe Drift Car Heist Video 15

As a compelling attempt to follow after the infamous Ken Block, the folks at Hyundai get this creative idea to “do something outrageous” inside the old Hyundai Motor America headquarters building in Fountain Valley, California before they demolish it. That something looks to be their own Gymkhana at the hands of Rhys Millen in his Genesis Coupe drift car.

Dustin Loranger, one of Hyundai’s service technicians, had this great idea about having Rhys Millen perform some drift action before the abandoned headquarters gets the wrecking ball treatment.

In this video Rhys acts the part of a thief stealing his Hyundai Genesis Coupe drift car from the old Hyundai headquarters and then goes for some ridiculous ‘drifto’ action. Some think Rhys could be the next Ken Block but something tells me Ken has nothing to worry about right now. Check out the exclusive video below and let us know what you think.

The world record holder for the longest drift no longer belongs to Vaughn Gittin Jr. or any other professional drifter for that matter; it belongs to Mauro Calo who recently set the record in a stock Benz C63 AMG.

Mauro chose the handling circuit at Mercedes-Benz World where he performed an uninterrupted drift for a total distance of 7,572 feet (2,308 meters), which equates to almost a mile and a half. Of course the only thing stopping him at this distance was the tire that gave away launching chunks of rubber into the air as Mauro claims his respect in the motorsport world.

Check out the video of the complete drift below.
