BMW M5 ’08

When this M5 first came out I hated its looks. Over time I slowly began to like it more and more. Now, I really like it. The design was just way ahead of its time. It is really large, really fast, and has cool lights that make it look super sinister driving around the track. It also looks good with a subtle sleeper look, but equally as good in a crazy colour scheme. Big fan of it. This is one of the many reasons that make it an excellent drift car. It isn’t the best drift car of all time, but it is a ton of fun. The M5 weighs a lot and I would of thought it would be more difficult to drift, but it never has any problems drifting around a track. The huge power can make it a little tail happy, however. Also, I would watch it on bumpy tracks as it has a tendency to spin the back around a lot easier there.
