Best cars for drifting

The Toyota Corolla might not look that great nowadays but it's an amazing drift machine. Keiichi Tsuchiya, the father of drifting started out in one of these so you can't go far wrong.

The Toyota Supra is pretty cheap nowadays so you won't be too concerned about ruining its gearbox or braking axles. The fact that it's real wheel drive will also have you running to your nearest second hand car show room.

The BMW M3 is a great car whether you just drive it to work or you do donuts in the car park. Any model from any year makes a great drift car but our personal favourite is the 280bhp E36 variant.

The Ford Mustang is made using traditional technology so you won't find the sorts of modern gadgets that keep cars on the road. This makes it great for drifting.

The Mazda RX7 is difficult to drift if you're a beginner but the Wankel Rotary powerplant makes enough power to smoke tyres even though it's only a 1.3 litre.

Anything from Mercedes AMG will smoke up nicely but this is a favourite with drifters. This one has a crazy 6.2 litre V8 which will provide enough grunt to get you sideways.

The Nissan 350Z is a classic among tuners and drifters so you were probably expecting to see this on the list. If you make the most of the car's 276bhp, you'll have more fun with this one than any of the others.

The Nissan Skyline R33 GTS-T is perhaps the ultimate drifter's car. Nowadays even a mint condition Skyline is affordable for most weekend drifters. This car looks the part but you should mod yours to make it stand out. The 278bhp motor's plenty powerful enough for drifting but you could always add a little more by chipping it.
