The Worthouse Team are the icons of the drift world. Both the drivers James Deane and Piotr Wiecek have been successful and consistent in their performance and well recognised for their drifting skills. It is not just the skills but also the cars which play an important role over the course of the season. And the drivers are certainly equipped with the right car that they need to win – A Nissan Sylvia S15.

Nissan Sylvia S15, is a sports coupe and is considered as a great drift car. The car is naturally low to the ground and relatively light weight, and just couple it with few modifications, the car is ready to race. Launched in 1999, the S15 boasted an impressive 247bhp 6,400rpm with 203 ft/lb torque from the most powerful inline-four SR20DET to date. With a completely revamped design, the S15 certainly stood out among its older relatives and featured aggressive styling to match the trends at the time. The engine is turbocharged, with double overhead camshaft and 4 cylinders. The engine delivers its power through to the wheels via a 6-speed manual transmission. Both the Worthouse.Team cars are 2JZ-powered S-bodies with quick-change rear ends and sequential gearboxes.
