Assetto Corsa's Drift Mode is equal parts very difficult and blistering fun, but finding the right car for your personal drifting preferences is the first challenge you'll face before heading to the track. While any car in the game has the technical capability to drift, we've compiled a short and sweet list of the best cars for Drift Mode/Drifting.
NOTE: While these cars can drift without tuning, it's recommended that you use the drift setup for each of these cars before you head out to the track.
Mercedes SLS AMG GT3
More than just a collection of random letters, this AMG GT3 version of the SLS is a wonderful machine for drifting. Its speed might prove tough for those just beginning to learn the ropes of Assetto Corsa's realism, but when you're comfortable with the feel of the game, this car will deliver high scores and multiple combos when in Drift Mode.
Nissan GT-R NISMO
If you're interested in using a car that's going to provide more of a challenge, the GT-R will test your mettle in balancing speed and braking to achieve a perfect drift. While its speed can make it an unruly drifter at times, this car will perform beautifully once you rein it in.

A well-balanced drifter, the 1m is a great car with just enough speed to make things exciting, but not enough to turn your runs into a mess of chaotic spin-outs. Players looking to slightly increase the challenge of their Drift Mode runs without having to fight against the car too much—consider this option.
Fiat 500 Abarth
Don't judge this book by its cover—this hot hatchback may not exactly deliver in the looks department, but under this tiny exterior beats the heart of a mighty warrior. The 500 Abarth version of this Fiat is extremely speedy and handles brilliantly, allowing you to attack your drifts at a higher speed than most cars in the game.
This is a wonderful car for any players looking to cut their teeth in Drift Mode or anyone just looking for some good slip n' slide fun.
BMW M3 30
Widely regarded as the best drifter in the game, the M3 30's balance of speed and handling is among the best in the game as far as Drift Mode is considered.
While it can get a bit unruly if you put the hammer down into your turns, it won't take long for you to figure out that sweet spot between acceleration and braking. Perfect for veterans and beginners alike, this car is the absolute choice for easier high score runs and some plain drifting fun.
