F oust, who since he left the drft scene in 2010 has clinched two global rallycross titles with VW, will remain loyal to the Wolfsburg team during the drift comeback. Well, at least in parts, because the Drift Passat has very little in common with the production car.

7.4- Liter V8 for the Passat

So that the Passat can hang out cleanly when cornering, it has been converted to rear-wheel drive. In the course of the renovation, the power source was also changed. No TDI or TSI works under the heavily perforated bonnet, but a 7.4-liter US V8 that generates a whopping 700 hp. If the nitrous oxide injection is ignited, there are briefly another 200 hp on the rear wheels.

The gear is shifted using a special 4-speed gearbox. On the front axle, 255/40 tires on 17-inch rims, while 295/40 tires on 18-inch rims are struggling for grip on the rear axle.
