Tokyo Drift Nissan for Sale in the UK
Here’s a riddle: what’s black and gray, can perform a drift up a parking garage ramp, and is inexplicably on sale in the UK?
If you guessed the 2002 Nissan 350Z driven by Drift King in The Fast and the Furious: Tokyo Drift, then boy are you good.

Of course, according to Edmunds, there were actually 11 copies built of that car, with only two sporting the twin turbochargers:
In any case, the car is fitted with a Veilside Version 3 Wide Bodykit, an APS twin turbocharged engine, a Nismo twin plate clutch, and a Nismo two-way differential. That’s a recipe for a car engineered for drifting, with a boosted power of 475 hp and 420 lb-ft of torque. The sales listing says that the current owners can return it “to a more standard specification if preferred.”
The 350Z is on sale for £149,995, or $233,869.20 here in the states.
