While at Mobara yesterday I realized that what really makes Orido’s 86 so damn special is “the noise.” So I did what I very rarely do and switched my DSLR into video mode and attempted to fiddle around to get some clips of this first shakedown test…oh yes, and the incredible sound of the unsilenced 2UR! Hit play and enjoy…
Many thanks to Luke Huxham for taking my crappy footage and turning into something watchable!

"How come no one is upset when Japanese put a V8 in a drift car but cry when someone in Formula D do it?" Are they putting American engines into Japanese cars in Formula D? That would turn me off. I cant stand American crap, mostly because of the douchebags that nut swing on dumpmestic cars. The biggest douchebags in the world can be found on ls1tech and Corvette forum. I used to just not care about dumpmestics but after witnessing how douchy the dumpmestic fanboys are I hate them. Let em burn!
How come no one is upset when Japanese put a V8 in a drift car but cry when someone in Formula D do it? Anyways... sounds badass. Wish there was more action shots of it tho! Would be cool if there was more clips to go with your stories. Even a walk around the feature/spotlight car.
So many times I have read editorials and wished one of you guys would just turn the video Camera on for a few seconds. We often read "You have to hear this, it's incredible" then you guys never take a video. Thanks for switching your MkII to video!!!
Somehow when I look at the front of this car I am thinking LFA but so know it is an GT86. And with this engine this car is a MONSTER :) Must be the coolest drift car of the year so far. Unles someone els might top this... Doubtfull thoug :) have seen it ten times all ready ...
It's a custom made Varis body kit designed specifically for this car. I wouldn't be surprised if they started selling it soon.
The sound is incredible ! The new 86 will be in every drift competition for the newt years ... Hibino, Taniguchi and now Orido, next D1 will be amazing !
Rad. I'm feelin this. Totehilar how many people on FB were like "is that an LS?!" HAHAHA! Sounds great!
Why put a wolf in sheep's clothing when you can turn the lamb into a RAM with some proper engineering. This is piss poor marketing ...
the new 86 looks ugly, i just wish the name was someting other that 86, the ae86 was timeless, this new thing is so contemporary
