BMW drift – an epic V8 swap with precision turbo!
Building a drift car is a dream that keeps many enthusiasts awake at night. In most cases it leads to daydreaming. But as it happens in the case of drag racing-destined machines, the temptation to leave the track behind and “test” your car on the streets might prove too difficult to resist. As a result, an average nighttime driver might find traffic more complicated than it used to be, since drifters can easily move from the background to the foreground in a spool of a turbo.
The freshest example of this, the BMW drift, takes us to the Swedish street racing scene. We’ve shown you the way in which Swedish street racers dodge the police, but that had to do with the unofficial national street drag racing championship (a complicated name for a complicated adventure). However, on this occasion, we’re dealing with a drifting crew and these guys have turned to the already-classic V8 swap E30 BMW path. Their Bimmer uses the heart of a 540i (we can’t be sure about the generation, though), while a 66mm Precision turbo was added for appropriate firepower. Check out the awesome BMW drift in the video!!!
