The E92 M3 has won Road and Track's "Sultans of Slide" drifting comparison.

First paragraph quote," the M3 was our clear winner, the best production drift car."

Yes the M3 could be a drift car. Rear wheel drive + 400hp + LSD = lots of fun. I use to drift a Nissan 240sx and with the power difference in the E92.. it only makes drifting even easier. A buddy of mine actually drifts his E46 M3 and hes won first place in a couple of local competitions.
