1991 Nissan 240SX DeathKart

Unless you really know your stuff, it’d be hard work to deduct from what donor car this apocalyptic Mad Max style death mobile got its start. Aptly named the DeathKart, it’s the brainchild of drift enthusiast Mike Perez and a wild workshop called Speed Warhouse that turned a ’91 Nissan 240SX into a shredding mayhem machine.

Out of the original donor vehicle, outfitted as a drifter, the engine that Mike thought suited his ride the most was a turbocharged 2.5L 1J. He then hooked his ride with a Precision 6262 turbo, new aggressive cams, a heftier fuel injector and fuel pump, and an AEM Infinity. It was after all these upgrades, ironically, that he collided with a spun vehicle, putting the ride out of commission. And like a shock to the senses, he was inspired once he started to part out the wrecked ride. Funny how a simple accident can lead to sheer brilliance, isn’t it? From a street drifter to this grungy beast you see before you, now built out of scrap metal found in a junkyard and riding atop a set of super swamper tires. Talk about making due when life hands you lemons. [H/T: SuperStreetOnline]
