The 1000hp BMW M3 with the heart of Godzilla

Jake Jones, better known as the "Drift Squid", is a 28-year-old drifter from the Barossa Valley in South Australia. Jake has won many awards for his skills and, to him, it is simply a way of life. We caught up with Jake at the South Australian Time Attack and heard what he had to say, not only about himself, but also his RBM3. Photo Credit : Power Tune So how did this all begin? Well, Jake found an E92 M3 BMW that had met its end in a write-off-worthy accident.

Well, after 10 years in his possession, and more than a handful of rebuilds, the professional Kiwi skidder has treated the car to another refresh. And this time it's got an old-school flavour to it.

BMW aiming for drifting world record

BMW will attempt to set a new drifting world record, with a goal of travelling over 64km while going sideways. Using a 412kW/680Nm 2013 BMW M5, BMW Performance Driving School instructor Johan Schwartz will attempt to break the current Guinness world record for the longest drift, an 11.18km continuous slide set by Abdo Feghali in a Chevrolet Camaro SS set at the Yas Marina Circuit in Abu Dhabi in February this year.
