The Most Sideways BMW M3 Ever: 900BHP, 9000RPM & 2JZ Engine Swap ft. James Deane

What’s it like to drive a 900bhp drift car? Pretty full-on it’ll turn out, as three-time Formula D champion James Deane gives us a Dunsfold demo we won’t forget in a hurry and then – after a slight delay – lets Ollie Marriage, Top Gear Magazine’s Head of Car Testing have a go in his bonkers 2JZ-engined BMW.

How does it compare to a regular M3? What’s it like dealing with that much steering lock? Is it easier in the wet? Originally built up from a 320 diesel, Deane’s car has been radically modified to cope with tyre melting angles, drift battles and the searing heat of competition.
