The car started life as an every day 318i family runaround saloon with around 100bhp. Certainly not nearly enough to be a competitive drift car.

Soon after I took ownership of it I started on the engine build and making it is what you see today. With a lot of blood, sweat, late nights and scuffed knuckles. It is now a tyre shredding 650bhp turbocharged monster that has enough power to give 6 figure supercars a run for their money. Most importantly it was built by me and my team at JK Services.
