RB26 POWERED MOVIE CAR, BUT WITH RELIABLE V-8 POWER AND A 4 SPEED
FROM THE INSIDE
LINE TEST ARTICLE:
"In The Fast & the Furious: Tokyo Drift, the fiction
is that the hero transplants the powertrain from a Nissan Skyline
GT-R into an old Mustang in just one day so he can take on the Drift
King that night and prove himself the greatest drifter of them all.
In real life, five of the six Mustangs built by the Tokyo Drift production
team had American V8s under their hood for reliable power production
during filming. Nothing beats a big-inch American V8 when it comes
to making power.
Inside Line ultimately tested three
of the surviving Ford Mustangs — the almost pristine car with
the Nissan six and two equipped with 430-cubic-inch Ford Windsor V8s
and four-speed "Toploader" manual transmissions. One of
the V8 drift cars was clean and ready for show duty, while the other
had been battered in every way, but ran strong.
All of the Mustangs in The Fast
and the Furious: Tokyo Drift had Global West suspension pieces and
rack and pinion steering in common. And all three had 245/35R19 front
and 275/35R19 rear Toyo Proxes T1R tires and Volk Racing Grey GT-7
wheels keeping them off the ground. However, the intercoolers and
massive exhaust tips on the V8 Mustangs were just cosmetic; the exhaust
actually exited through Magnaflow mufflers forward of the rear axle.
While the Nissan-powered Mustang
responded to a light touch, the muscle-era power plants and transmissions
demanded some beating — a sledgehammer would have come in handy.
And while the six-cylinder Mustang idled smoothly, the V8 drift cars
seemed to be shaking themselves into a puddle of their constituent
molecules. Dip into the throttle on either V8 machine, however, and
the engine would roar like a startled lion. A six-cylinder turbo engine
may match a V8 in measured performance, but it will never have the
charisma of a V8.
With at least 375 horsepower on
tap, the V8 Tokyo Drift Mustangs could spin their tires with ease
— and would, no matter what. The beaten and battered Mustang
got to 60 mph in 6.7 seconds and consumed the quarter-mile in 14.7
seconds at 96.7 mph. For a drift car built to bash into other cars
while wagging its tail violently, that's not bad."
