The European drift scene has officially gone off the deep end I tell you! Some of the builds the continent has been releasing this year are just out of this world. This build from Ingemars Jekabson in Latvia might just take the cake however for awesomeness. He is build a E64 BMW 6-Series swapping the BMW motor out for a Chevrolet LS3 crate engine that he plans to twin turbo. The car as you can see in the second photo has been retrofitted to run a WiseFab kit. Ingemars finished second last year at the Drift All-Stars Riga round and we hope to see this car in action there this year!
