The power plant of the car produces 500 horsepower

A video appeared on the Web in which the Nissan Skyline in the R32 body performs the quietest drift in history: the car is equipped with an electric motor from Tesla, so the only sound on the record is the squeal of tires.

The assembly of an electric drift car began in 2018, and finished closer to the end of 2019. As part of the power plant, an electric motor from Tesla, as well as several rechargeable batteries from Chevrolet Volt. In total, the engine produces about 500 horsepower and more than 1000 Nm of torque.

The car was built by the creators of the Zero EV store, which is located in the American city of Bristol. The team specializes in converting absolutely any car to electric traction – their portfolio includes both an environmentally friendly version of the classic Volkswagen Beetle and a battery-powered Porsche 911 sports car.

To date, this is probably the only such project to turn Skyline into a drift electric car.
