Battle Drift

Watch Vaughn Gittin Jr. take on a Lambo in his Mustang RTR drifter

By Steve Turner

Our pal Vaughn Gittin Jr. is a self-proclaimed Professional Fun Haver, and based on the shenanigans that make up his work day, it’s hard to argue that title.

Case in point is the latest Monster Energy video project that pits Vaughn’s Mustang RTR against a fellow Monster drifter driving a Lamborghini in an Epic drift battle. Check it out…

“Vaughn Gittin Jr. heads to Niigata, Japan in his 550 HP 5.0L V-8 Mustang RTR to take on Daigo Saito’s 650 HP V-12 Drift Lamborghini. Built by Liberty Walk and Phat Five racing, Saito’s AWD to RWD converted beast is looking for a fight. The two drift legends head to Niigata, Japan to battle it out on a touge run as they head into the abandoned Niigata Russian Village,” says the video description. “Like something from a post apocalyptic world, the village provides the perfect backdrop for these outrageous machines to create some mayhem. After watching this video, if your dreams aren’t filled with the sweet sounds of a V-8 Muscle Car battling against a V-12 Supecar, something is seriously wrong with you. Put on a pair of headphones or hook up a nice set of speakers and Crank the Volume!”

That definitely looked like a lot of fun, and we can’t wait to see what JR has up his sleeve next.
