    Video: Autocar gets sideways in the 2012 BMW M5
    1325466060

    The 2012 BMW M5 is something of an anomaly. Despite its size and weight, the big luxury sedan is actually quicker than its less corpulent sibling, the BMW M3, around a road course. With a 552-horsepower twin-turbo V8 engine capable of sucking down small communities, there's no arguing the M5's ...

    "Wouldn't it be cool to do something outrageous inside [our old headquarters] before all the walls finally came down?" Why yes, Hyundai, it would. "Why not put Rhys Millen, his Genesis Coupe drift car, and our abandoned HQ together for a unique drift demonstration in a unique ...

    Video: Will it drift? Yes, the 2013 Scion FR-S will drift [UPDATE]
    1323705600

    The Scion FR-S may not be big on power, but Toyota and Subaru engineers have delivered a lightweight, rear-drive coupe at what should be a palatable price point.

    We have to ponder what Ayrton Senna would think of the whole drift scene. Would the Formula 1 legend look down his nose at the phenomenon as the automotive equivalent of figure skating or embrace the sideways action for its all-or-nothing ethic? We ask because filmmaker Stephen Brooks has invoked ...

    Video: Haven't heard the 2012 BMW M5 yet? Watch this
    1321232460

    The BMW M5 has a long and rich performance history, and that resume only improves for 2012. With a twin-turbocharged 4.4-liter V8 pumping out 560 horsepower and an always-willing chassis underpinning it all, we can't wait to get behind the wheel. Sadly we're a bit shy on the $92,000 needed to ...

    Video: V8 Supercar driver celebrates win by drifting entire victory lap
    1308612300

    Racing is racing. Drifting is drifting. The two don't generally cross over, for one simple reason: drifting is slow, and racing is fast. Unless your name is Gilles Villeneuve, the general rule is that drifting through a corner isn't as fast as braking on the way in, clipping the apex and ...

    Who would you think would hold the record for the world's longest drift? Tanner Foust in a Scion? Sam Hubinette in a Dodge? Ken Block in a Subaru or a Ford? Maybe Vaughn Gittin, Jr. in a Mustang? If you guessed the latter, you would be right. Or at least you would have been up until last ...
