Irish, Ffrench, Toyota & Nissan…

15 Apr

Put it all together and you get this:

This Altezza belongs to the Speedhunters legend Martin (frenchie) Ffrench from Ireland. Martin has many many drift machines but this has gotta be my favourite at the moment. The shots from this feature have been floating around for some time now but I still find myself Googling Martin Ffrench SpeedHunters Feature from time to time just to soak up some awesomeness from this car.

As you can see, its not the normal Toyota motor lurking under the hood but a pretty ferocious 450bhp SR20 with a top-mounted TD-06…. PORNOGRAPHIC!

The best part of the SpeedHunters feature was how Paddy McGrath shot the photos, theyre brilliant!
