The Manliest Way To Drift

  1. Going Sideways In A 110-Year-Old Land Speed Record Car Is The Manliest Way To Drift

    Goodwood has released this video from last month's Festival of Speed, showing a bonkers 25.4-litre 1905 Darracq being driven to the edge

    Many of the older machines that make it up Goodwood’s famous hill climb are driven rather gingerly, but that’s definitely not the case with the car you see here. Built by French manufacturer Darracq, it features a 197bhp (200bhp) V8 displacing a whopping 25.4 litres, and clocked 122.5mph Daytona beach in 1906.
