This W124-generation Mercedes-Benz 300CE has been turned into a full-on drift car, complete with a fantastic-sounding twin-turbo V-8 engine making over 500 horsepower.

According to the Italiansupercarvideo YouTube channel, the engine is a 5.0-liter M119 unit sourced from an S-Class, running on just under nine psi of boost. Despite the low pressure, the car has no trouble lighting up the rear, enough to pull off some long, satisfying slides. We can't get enough of it.
