Su­per­car Me­gabuild

Classic Car Weekly (UK) - - This Week - Mur­ray Scul­lion

Wed­nes­day 22 Feb @4PM, Na­tional Geo­graphic Chan­nel This episode of Su­per­car Me­gabuild isn’t one for purists. For­mer Boy­zone star turned pro­fes­sional drifter Shane Lynch chal­lenges the crew (au­thor Ralph Hosier and ex­pe­ri­enced en­gi­neer Ra­nen Ru­dra) to build him a Rolls-Royce drift car.

For those not in the know, drift­ing is the art of rac­ing side­ways and it’s eas­ier to list what wasn’t changed in or­der for the Roller to be trans­formed into a drifter. The 6.75-litre en­gine re­mained, but pretty much ev­ery­thing else – in­clud­ing the sus­pen­sion and brakes – was mod­i­fied in some way.

Es­sen­tial view­ing if you find the idea of a Sil­ver Shadow smok­ing side­ways on op­po­site lock ap­peal­ing.
