Assetto Corsa: Best Drift Cars and Drifting DLC

Drifting is quite a niche activity in Assetto Corsa, but that doesn’t mean that there aren’t some great mods to hurl around within the simulator.


Perfecting the art of drifting can be pretty tough in Assetto Corsa, particularly as there isn’t a huge array of high-quality drift car mods available for the game. That said, there are a select few drift cars that you can get your hands on which are superb to drive, and we are going to look at the best of them here.

Drift Workshop Street Pack 2018

One of the very best drift car packs for Assetto Corsa has been created by the guys at AssettoCorsa.Club.


A total of 13 cars are available in this package, ranging from the Nissan Skyline R32, the Toyota AE86, all the way to the incredible Ford Mustang Fox Body. So, there is a bit of something for everyone in this car package.

For those who are just starting out drifting in the game, this is quite possibly the perfect package and is certainly worth your time to download.

Tando Buddies Pack

Initially, there is very little information to go on for the Tando Buddies drifting package, but when you get behind the wheel of one of their cars and start sliding the rear end, you won’t care about that.

The Tando Buddies Pack went through an unofficial refresh, and the pack now includes cars such as the Nissan 180SX, Nissan S14, the Toyota Cresta, and the BMW 238i – for a bit of European drifting action.


It’s another great drift cars pack to get you started in Assetto Corsa.

Assetto Corsa Japanese Pack DLC

If you want some more officially-licensed drift content, then the only way that you can go with the Japanese Pack available for Assetto Corsa as DLC.

The pack was released in May 2016 and contains a multitude of Japanese cars. These range from the Mazda RX-7, the Nissan GT-R R34 Skyline, and the Toyota AE86. The pack also includes drift versions of some of these cars, such as the Toyota Supra MK IV and the Toyota AE86 Trueno.


These drift cars are great fun to slide around the track, plus you have the bonus of downloading a pack that includes some of the very best cars created in Japan. So, this DLC pack is a win-win!

Assetto Corsa Mazda FC RX-7 Drift

Speaking of the RX-7, we think that we’ve found the perfect drifting package for the car. Uploaded onto the aiPod Drifters modding site, this stunning model allows you to throw perhaps the last, truly great rotary-powered car around whatever track you choose.

The textures are incredibly high quality, and we can even open the doors, the bonnet lid, and the boot as well. Exhaust flames will spit out of the car, there is visual damage, and some brilliant rotary sounds. Best of all, this is all for the grand price of 0.00!

DCGP Car Pack 2021

Finally, we have another package from the aiPod Drifters site. This is the Drift Corner Grand Prix package, which is quite a comprehensive bit of DLC.

What we get in this pack ranges from BMWs to Mazdas and Nissans, as well as a couple of other surprises to provide one of the very best drift car packs in Assetto Corsa.

The drifting car scene in the game isn’t one of the biggest, but it is nice to see such a high quality and detailed pack make it to release for us all to enjoy: it’s very much worth your time.

There are some pretty solid mods out there for you to enjoy some drift car racing, and even if it takes a bit of time to dig them up, it is certainly worth it when you finally get your hands on them. Drifting is an art form, so prepare to spend quite a bit of time perfecting it in Assetto Corsa.
