This 1,300-HP Nissan Altima Drift Car Rocks a 3D-Printed Widebody

Drifting is one of the most expressive forms of motorsports. From grassroots efforts where regional amateurs gather with their daily drivers all the way up to Formula Drift, it’s always a blast to watch the unique mix of cars and personalities send it around a track. And speaking of uniqueness, this Altima’s originality has been amplified courtesy of 3D printing.

With the help of additive manufacturing, self-taught Formula Drift champion Chris Forsberg is getting even more creative with his GT-R-powered Nissan Altima build.

Forsberg has been working on one of the coolest drift cars since Ryan Tuerck’s V8 Ferrari-powered Toyota GT-4586, and it surprisingly started with a Nissan Altima. The DTM-inspired, 1,300-horsepower tire shredder (affectionately coined “Altimaniac”) is a creation that took the wide-and-low appearance of the European touring car series and threw it right in the fire that is Formula D.
