Watch Tanner Foust’s 900 hp V8 Passat get very sideways

by SpeedLux

Just as Liam Neeson changed himself from Oscar luvvie into Hollywood hardman, and Arnold Schwarzenegger transformed from Hollywood hardman to eco-minded politician, is the VW Passat to be reevaluated? In this way, if Tanner Foust has anything to do with it. Sponsor Rockstar has discharged this fairly fabulous four-minute video of the 900bhp Passat drift car in real life.

As you’d anticipate from a car built with the express expectation of going sideways, dependably, you’ll be satisfied to see the Passat going sideways, always. There is noise and some other fairly natty flashlighting.

Foust has past with Formula D, winning the USA’s premiere drifting title in 2007 and 2008. 2015 sees him come back to the series after a five-year nonappearance, during which he completed in the European Rallycross Championship.

“My inspiration for returning to drifting is not simply to get where I exited off, and battle for the win,” says Tanner. “Drifting is a good time for me. Reality is, I’ve got a 900 horsepower Passat, and I need to toss down a few runs on the track.”
