Best Drift Cars In GTA 5 Online

Below you will find a list of the 5 best drifting cars in GTA 5 and GTA Online as of September 2021. All the details can be found below, including stats, price, and more.

5. Willard Faction

The Willard Faction might not be the best-looking cars in GTA 5, but for drifting around corners, it’s one of the best.

Included as part of the Lowriders update, the Faction is a muscle car that works surprisingly well as a drift car if the right upgrades are applied. Make sure to take it to the garage and purchase turbo tuning, race transmission, and SUV tires.

The Faction is also incredibly cheap, costing just $36,000.

4. Dewbauchee Rapid GT

Next up on the list is the luxury coupe vehicle, the Rapid GT. Again, you’ll need to take this to the garage and purchase some extra upgrades to get this car ready for drifting.

Upgrades like an EMS 4 Engine Upgrade, Sport Suspension, Turbo Tuning, and Race Transmission are essential when it comes to drifting the Rapid GT.

The Dewbauchee Rapid GT also comes in at a fairly cheap price, just $132,000. Which is cheap compared to a lot of the newer cars available in GTA Online.

3. Bravado Gauntlet Hellfire

Another unlikely addition to this list is the Bravado Gauntlet Hellfire. An unusual choice for best drift cars in GTA Online as it is a 2 door muscle car.

The Hellfire made its debut in GTA Online back in September of 2019 and has quickly become a fan favourite for GTA drifters.

One of the downsides to the Gauntlet Hellfire is the hefty price tag, coming in at $745,000 before any upgrades. But, if you’ve got the cash to spare, the Hellfire is a perfect addition to the best drifts cars in GTA Online.

2. Karin Futo

The Karin Futo is hands down one of the best drift cars in GTA 5. The Futo is a 2 door sports car that only costs $9,000, making it one of the cheapest cars in the game.

With an extremely lightweight chassis, rear-wheel drive, and poor traction, the Futo is a must-have for drifters. Of course, paired with a few upgrades we can make it even better.

Players will want to upgrade to EMS Engine Level 4, Turbo Tuning, Roll Cage, Stock Suspension, and Muscle Wheels.

1. Bravado Banshee 900R

Finally, quite possibly the best drift car in GTA 5 Online is the Bravado Banshee 900R.

Like many of the vehicles in this list, the Banshee 900R can only reach its full drifting potential when some important upgrades are made.

EMS Engine Level 4, Dual Exit Exhaust, and Sport Suspension are a must to get the most out of this drift car.
