What’s the Best BMW Drift Car?

What’s the Best BMW Drift Car?

RWD – that’s the essence of drifting, sure. But it’s also down to vehicle chioce and driver skill. If you want to make BMW your drifting machine what should you be aiming at?

Most of us (unless totally loaded!) will be thinking of an older model, but forget the old 6 and 7 series cars. These were luxury consumer models and would need a lot of weight stripping out and the suspension changing – probably why no one drifts these models.

A good place to start might be an older 3 series. Proven racing pedigree here, plus these models are becoming increasingly affordable and available. Parts are no longer expensive. If going for an old E30, the lighter 1.8 litre is the choice – it will outperform the heavier 2.0.

The real BMW drift cars are the Z3 and Z4. You may pay a little more but these cars are where it’s at for sideways fun. The ///M coupe is the one to go for if you can afford it.

Whatever you choose, we can help with the BMW badge styling!

Senner Push AMG Even Harder!

If enough wasn’t already enough, Senner Tuning’s Mercedes-Benz SLS AMG badged Roadster takes things that bit higher again.

An extra 35 horsepower and 29 lb-ft of torque have been extracted out of the V8 beast, thanks to valve controlled  sport exhaust system and uprated performance air filters.

The increase could see the roadster top 200 mph and reach 62 mph in 3.7 seconds.

Styling wise, the roadster is fitted with 21 inch titanium grey Schmidt Gotham alloys. Rear tyres are 295/25!!!

New 3 Series GT for 2013

Fans of the BMW badge will welcome a new addition the 3-series range, The BMW 3-series Gran Turismo, which will make its debut at the 2013 Geneva motor show.

200mm longer than a 3-series Touring, it’s also slightly taller and has a 110mm longer wheelbase. A sloping tailgate and frameless side doors give it a slicker look.

Although a great deal of the interior is similar to the Saloon and Touring models, a 40/20/40 split/folding rear seat is standard, plus with a 520-litre capacity the GT provides 25 litres more boot space than the standard saloon.

Three petrol and two diesel models will be available, with power output ranging from 141 to 3012 bhp.
