The HGK Motorsports E92 BMW drift fighter was supposed to make its show debut under the AEM tent last month at the Formula D finale at Irwindale. Instead, it was pressed into service as the 2017 car was about to launch its engine and driver Kristaps Blušs sat third in points. Rather than sit out the round, the Latvian driver strapped into the E92 Eurofighter and made it into the top 8, knocked out by the eventual winner.

What separates the E92 Eurofighter from most drift cars is its body is almost entirely made of composites. Rather than overfenders, new fenders were molded from a kevlar/carbon weave from strength and durability, along with other parts likely to contact other cars. Only the roof and rear window surround are pure carbon. Kristaps estimates the car is 90% covered in composites, which drops about 34% of the weight of a road-going E92. Power comes from a Dart aluminum small blocked bored and stroked to 427 CID built by Mast Motorsports that produces 900 horsepower without any forced induction, but drawn through a sizeable AEM panel filter.

Behind the mighty mouse motor is a Samsonas 5-speed sequential transmission to a Winters Performance quick-change rear. Brakes are from Wilwood, shocks from Nitron, and tires from Achilles. About AEM, Kristaps comments that “we’ve been working with AEM for five years. They give us service and quality – they’re perfect partners.” And now you’ll have a chance to see the HGK Motorsports E92 sitting still in the AEM Booth 22755 at the 2017 SEMA Show or watch the video about this amazing car.
