Drift cars enhance the thrilling adrenaline-filling gameplay experience of Forza Horizon 5 (FH5). With a clinical focus on mimicking real-life performance and handling intricacies, every car in FH5 behaves just like its real-life counterpart. This means that certain actions/styles of driving can only be executed with specific types of cars. The same applies for drifting too. To drift flawlessly across the beautifully-detailed rendition of Mexico, you will need only the best drifting cars. Picking the right car can often be a dilemma, but not anymore. In this guide, we will show you the 5 best drift cars in Forza Horizon 5. This list will feature a mix of regular and drift-specific cars, so you can choose your pick.
Forza Horizon 5 (FH5) Best Drift Racing Cars
2006 Dodge Viper SRT10 Formula Drift #43 – Best Drift Racing Cars in FH5
The 2006 Dodge Viper SRT10 Formula Drift #43 is arguably one of the best-performing drift cars in Forza Horizon 5 (FH5). The American legend boasts of a massive 8.3 liter twin-turbocharged V10 engine that produces a whopping 1350 horsepower. All of these stats combine to burn insane amounts of rubber as you drift like one of the Fast and Furious characters effortlessly. Being a focussed drifting car, this Dodge is quite tricky to drive in a straight line. Because of this, we recommend you only use it to drift.
2020 Toyota Supra
The latest rendition of the legendary JDM also happens to be a pretty good drifting machine. The 2020 Toyota Supra has plenty of power for grin-inducing drift action on the twisties. When compared to the Dodge, the Supra is also less aggressive. This means you can also drive this car in a straight line without risking going sideways into a tree.
2019 Ferrari 488 Pista
There’s no way we would have left a Ferrari out of this special list. Thankfully, this one is a worthy contender in this compilation of the best drifting cars in FH5. While the Ferrari 488 Pista is obviously on the pricey side, it is a great drifter. If you get your timing right, you are bound to have plenty of fun flinging this gorgeous machine sideways. To top it off, since this is a Ferrari, it is insanely quick too, making it the perfect all-rounder in this list.
1965 Hoonigan Ford Mustang Hoonicorn
Did I hear you say drifting? Tire smoke? Ear-shattering exhausts? Well, the 1965 Hoonigan Ford Mustang Hoonicorn has all of that and more. This American monster boasts of an insane acceleration and speed rate of 10 and 9.2 respectively. What ensues is absolute chaos when you flick the Mustang sideways. What makes this car even more fun to drive is its mind-boggling 0-100 time of 3.15 seconds and its eager wheel-spinning abilities.
2020 BMW M2 Formula Drift #91
The stock BMW M2 is enough of a decent drifter, so you can only imagine what the Formula Drift rendition of the Beemer is capable of. The car’s small size, coupled with its aggressive engine makes for an excellent drifting machine. Based on my personal experience, the M2 can be a little tricky to master. But once you get a grip (pun unintended) on steering it properly, you will find yourself grinning from ear to ear.
So there you have it. This was our compilation of the 5 best drift racing cars from Forza Horizon 5 (FH5). As we mentioned earlier, we made sure to include regular cars in this list as well. Cars like the Ferrari 488 Pista and Toyota Supra are more of all-rounders. If you want our true recommendation, it would be the absolutely mental 2006 Dodge Viper SRT10 Formula Drift #43. While this car might be difficult to tame, it offers insane fun as you proceed to torture its tires on Mexico’s winding roads. There’s only guaranteed fun with the Dodge.
