S13 and S14 would include JDM, USDM, EDM, and ADM variants.

do you mean greatest mechanically, or greatest culturally.

because the s15 is mechanically at the top i would say, but, the ae86 is more of a legend.

i chose the Corolla AE-86
because of its perfect balance..and from the complete elagance of the car is unlike anyother..

I doubt its big in Japan or Stateside but the Ford Escort MKII RS2000 was the beginning of the sideways action, simply awe inspiring stuff.....

if you ask me I would have to say the s13,s14,or s15.The ae86 is of course close behind, then probably the skyline although i do love the rx-7.hmmm....(in very deep thought)

you people are all picking cars that are just your favorites lol, one of the best cars for drifting is actually the MX5...I am saying that and I don't even like that car. another awsome car for drifting is the Suzuki Cappuccino. The smaller the wheelbase of the car the easier (and faster) you can control and change your drift angle.

In a car like a miata you can correct you angle by braking normally or even a slight lift-up off of the gas, I have never driven a cappuccino so I cant say much about it, but I haven driven and drifted a stock miata which was actually a rental car for my mom. And I can honestly say it is absolutely awsome for drifting. For the few days we had the car I must have nearly shattered the pressure plate because it was too much fun to induce a drift by flooring the throttle and stomping on the clutch repeatedly hehe i could smell the clutch burning as i drove it lol so my vote goes to the car obviosly meant for a chick to drive due to it's cuteness
-the MX5 Miata

Man I love all those old Escorts and especially the 4wd Cossies. Wish they'd bring those cars back. My vote is gonna go to the S13 due to it's cheap availbility and wide variety of parts. It's the Japanese equivelent to the 5.0 imho.

Cosworth power is great, they helped power the Skyline concept. IDK who put the skyline as a drift car, but AWD, well than again if you have the skill, more power to you.:o

GT-R aint, i know old school skylines are rwd. doesnt the 1990 1 have rwd, i know the gtr32 aint but there was a base 1 that was not awd.

Dont forget the G35 is a RWD skyline, I dont know if its any good in a Drift, never seen it, but I like the 350Z's for a drift car. I think the G35 would be too heavy for drifting.

I would have to say the s2000 with hard top is the best drifter out there.... simply because that baby just loves to hang its arse end out....
A friend of mine drives one and when i first took it for a ride i was having trouble taking corners without drifting.

P.S. for all you cefiro lovers out there check this baby out

yea, but no one said GT-R, they said Skyline. there is the GTS, and the GTS-T fron what I know are the only FR Skylines out of the R32-R34 models.

and the new G35 is AWD now. the early models(like first year or w/e) were FR but it changed to AWD just a bit ago.

did they sell MKII Escorts in America? they look nice. real nice.

LOL

Look at his location - no they didn't sell them in the US.

That Cefiro is beautiful - those look like Silvia headlights and grille though.

It's very hard to chose just one, but my vote would be A70 because they take no money to make into a powerful drift machine. Add coilovers to a turbo model and you have yourself an awesome drift car. Plus, they are the underdog with their massive weight and they just look so awesome going sideways.

I'm shocked no one has brought up most of the older Porsches. Drive one and you'll know what I'm referring to.

For Japanese imports, I'm surprised there aren't more NSX's that do the drifting events. Didn't Dori King retire driving the Arta NSX?

For the price of an NSX, even used, you could build yourself a retarted S13 or RX-7 or Corolla. A lot of the Formula D cars have been built well under the $20k mark (not the Viper and GTO but those are different). A used NSX will still go for $30k if you're lucky, and that's before any modifications.

I guess everything cost more out east mranlet.
The NSX was purchased for 21 and it's a 91'.

well the title of the thread was "ultimate drift car" not with the limit of cost. yeah I'm well aware NSX's cost a bundle, but that shouldn't eliminate them from consideration of being a very capable drift car.

NSX is a mid-rear layout and thus has a lower polar moment than the front-rear cars already mentioned. This leads to less predictability and less tossability without complete loss of control. If you watch NSX drifting videos, the driver is often speed drifting (i.e. using smaller angles) because you simply can't hold massive angles easily in an NSX.
