Ok Ok I havn't got over watching "The Fast and the Furious-Tokyo Drift" on Saturday night. But here's a little gem from Jalopnik on a guy who transplanted a Honda S2000 engine into a old black BMW coupe. Hey you didn't think it was a BMW engine did you???;) Complete with scantily clad Japanese babe ( she has obviously never done the Aberdeen Beach Boulevard Cruise in winter) quite entertaining, but why does the guy wear MARIGOLD Washing up gloves?:confused: I will never understand the mysteries of the orient.;)

BMW set their V10 rev limit to 8400.

I'm sure if they felt the need they could build a poxy 4 pot to rev to whatever people felt the fashion was at the time.

Yet another reason to cross BMW off my list of cars I would like to own.
Nothing more than mindless boy racers.
I like to think WE are above all that nonsense.

Good feat of engineering, though you have to admit :)

There are very few drivers that really impress me. Tsuchiya is one of them - his car control is extraordinary and watching him on the Touge is always a thrill

Have a look on YouTube if you want to see more. There's one clip of him in a Aston, an M6 and a few others on that same Touge track.

Aston, M6, 911 Turbo

Ferrari F430 - the brake pedal on the Ferrari looks very long to me at times!

Final one has Tsuchiya drifting an M5
