Rhys "Mad Skilz" Millen is a man that needs no introduction here at Motor Authority.
The New Zealand-born driver earned his name as a rally driver before switching to pro drifting and along the way he’s also completed stints as a Hollywood stunt driver, Pike’s Peak competitor and Global RallyCross Championship contender behind the wheel of a Hyundai Veloster.
For the 2012 Formula DRIFT season, Millen pilots the latest 2013 Hyundai Genesis Coupe, but his particular car delivers up 650 horsepower and 650 pound-feet of torque through the rear wheels.
Power comes from a turbocharged version of the 3.8-liter V-6 found in the regular Genesis Coupe but it’s been stretched out to 4.1 liters and received a series of uprated components. Millen's Genesis Coupe drift car also features a stripped-out interior, KW suspension and Enkei wheels shod with Hankook and housing huge Brembo brakes.
