The original 8-Series is one of the coolest BMWs ever built, so it makes sense someone would turn it into a drift car. But instead of using the stock V8 or V12, this car's builder decided to take a different approach.

Under the hood of this 8-Series sits a BMW S63 twin-turbo V8, versions of which are found in the X5 M, X6 M, and the two most current generations of M5. While it's not totally original, at least the builder kept it in the family.
