Video: Rockstar/AEM’s NASCAR V8 drift car test run

tc-drift-cap-580opHere are two things that don’t come to mind when you think of Scion: rear-wheel drive and V8 power. But that’s exactly what the Rockstar/AEM crew have created with the Formula D-bound Scion tC.

Joe Gibbs, TRD and Papadakis Racing put in the wrench time on the new racer and underhood is a V8 pulled from Toyota’s NASCAR efforts and retuned with a drift-friendly powerband. Most of the details are still shrouded in mystery, but the noise emanating from the tC’s exhaust is more than enough to get us interested.

Check out the awesome video of it’s test run.
