This 717 horsepower S14.5 was built by Enrico Sartori and his team at Brill Steel in Northern Italy and is said to be their interpretation of what the perfect drift car should look like. Brill Steel is known for their insane custom vehicles that feature big American V8s combined with insane custom aero bits–which is far from the norm in the European car scene.
The S14 Silvia is already a widely-loved vehicle, but this specific build is amazingly over-the-top and has overtaken the internet in the past year or so.
To start, Enrico ordered an GM LS3 from the United Kingdom to drop into his S14 chassis. Since then, he has amplified the stock 480 horsepower produced by the crate motor and turned it into an astounding 717 accompanied by 896 ft-lbs of torque by increasing the displacement to 427 cubic inches. Add nitrous to the mix and this thing puts over 945 horsepower to the ground. All this was achieved with the help of a Lunati stroker crankshaft, Compstar H-beam rods, Wiseco pistons, a FAST LSXR intake, a 102mm PTM throttle body, 900cc injectors, and a MecTronik ECU MKE6.
Enrico claims to not be a fan of any type of aero kit, so instead, chooses to go fully custom. Aside from the huge attention-grabbing GT wing and diffuser, wide body dry carbon S15 body panels were put in place to create one of the most aggressive looks we’ve ever seen.
With this much work put into a vehicle, its hard not to appreciate it whether you are an import or domestic fan. The “Demon S15” is said to be hitting the occasional grip and drift events all over Europe soon.
