Do you know what ‘D.K.‘ stands for?
If you ever wanted to be D.K. or the Drift King from Fast And Furious Tokyo Drift, now’s your chance. According to Chesire Classic Cars, DK’s very own 2002 Nissan 350Z used in Tokyo Drift as both hero and stunt car is currently up for sale for the reasonable price of 150,000 pounds or about $230,000. Considering that a stock used 2002 Nissan 350Z sells for around $7,000 if you find one in good condition, you’d better be a fan of the series if you ever want to justify owning this one-off drift machine.
What sets this car apart other than the fact that it was used extensively in the movie as well as infamously being flung around a parking garage somewhere in downtown Tokyo is that it sports a rather authentic piece of Japanese Aero. Commonly referred to as Veilside, the Japanese aftermarket designer is known for it’s award winning designs. Practically all the body panels have been either reworked or replaced with a carbon fiber equivalent.
You’ll be happy to know that this isn’t just a show car as a bit of tuning was carried out by APS. We know that in total, 11 of these Nissan 350Z’s were made for the movie but only two were equipped with APS’s twin-turbocharged system which supposedly makes upwards of 475 HP and 420 lb-ft of torque. Because it’s set up for drifting, driving it on normal roads might be a problem. But then again, you’re buying a movie car. According to the ad, you can technically return the car to a more standard specification, but why would someone want to do that? There’s the option if you’re so willing.
