Huxley Motorsport Drift Car up for sale

This Huxley motorsport Volvo 245 estate v8 track/drift/BDC comp car is up for grabs on eBay at the moment. It is not often you will get the chance to buy a fully competition ready car, this type of car is only for those who are serious about competing, mind you. These track cars, although designed to drift are far more difficult to drive than your standard drift car. They are engineered to have more grip at high speeds, going sideways.

This is what you could buy;
