The E60-generation BMW M5 is one of the coolest sedans ever built. I should know—I owned one, after all. With a naturally aspirated V-10 capable of revving past 8000 rpm under the hood, it's one of the most unique and special four-doors on the road. And it makes for an exceedingly good drift car, judging by this video.
This 2006 M5 was converted into a purpose-built drift machine by its owner, equipped with a full roll cage, racing seats, coilovers, and an angle kit for pulling off massive slides. The seven-speed SMG single-clutch paddle-shift automatic has been removed in favor of a proper six-speed manual. From the sound, it seems like all of the muffling in the exhaust has also been removed—just how we like it.
Coincidentally, the car in this video happens to be for sale on Facebook Marketplace, listed in Québec, Canada. According to the seller, they've built a 1-Series coupe with a V-8 from an E90-generation M3, so they no longer need this car to go drifting. Mileage is a bit high at 119,000, but the biggest maintenance issue, the rod bearings, have already been taken care of. If you're looking for a new drift car that'll turn heads, this'll certainly get the job done.
