In all of motorsport, there's perhaps no better wild mix of drifting European sports cars - artful Japanese motorsport and highly-strung European classics just don't mix! ...or do they?! We've mixed and mashed the classic Autosport design of the original E30 M3 with high-revving, sideways-going drift action! This Sport 3 Drift features the ultra-cool BMW M3 complete with extra-wide wheel arches, front air dam and a big street-style rear wing! The car is also fitted with replica Work Emotion XC8 wheels wrapped with officially licensed Toyo Proxxes tires for awesome scale realism, so it's ready to hit the drift scene right out of the box!

Under the hood, this 1/10th scale officially licensed replica is equipped with the latest HPI Racing Touring Car chassis, the Sport 3 Drift! With full-time 4WD and a fully sealed shaft drivetrain, waterproof 2.4 GHz electronics and radio gear, fully independent double wishbone suspension and adjustable oil-filled shocks, it’s ready to drift whenever you are!

The officially licensed, realistic BMW M3 replica is emblazoned with the iconic Driftworks logo, letting the world know it's ready for high-speed, tire-burning fun!

BMW E30 M3: The ultimate retro sports car!

Debuting in 1985 at the illustrious Frankfurt Motor Show, the "M" version of the roadgoing E30 was produced primarily in a coupe (2-door) body style, with a very limited number available as cabriolet convertibles. The body was extensively remade for the M3 version - most famously the extra-wide, boxy wheel arches front and rear, but with lightened and raised rear bodywork, refined windscreen and other improvements only a few pieces of the original body - doors, engine hood, and roof - remained unchanged from the original production car. With "only" 200 horsepower from its modified inline 4-cylinder engine, and uprated brakes to match, the 2-door coupe destined for executives was transformed into a circuit-smashing beast.

Today, the BMW M3 is still considered the most successful Group A and German Touring Car Championship (DTM) touring car ever unleased. It's taken countless wins at the 24 Hours Nürburgring, the 24 Hours of Spa, Belgium, the DTM, and even as a rally car! And now, it's available as a fantastic Japan-inspired drift machine, ready for your command! 

Work Emotion MC8 Wheels + Toyo Proxxes R1R Tires
The BMW E30 M3 is fitted with Work Emotion XC8 wheels, which provide a super-cool 'retro mod' look that is in between classic multi-spoke designs and a flowing organic style that looks bold and minimal at the same time - aggressive and functional, perfect for an updated 90s car look. Work wheels are extensively used by various motorsports teams in GT300, GT500, Formula 3, and the N1 endurance racing series. On the street, they are used on everything ranging from million-dollar McLaren F1 race cars to Spoon Sports Honda Civics.

Completing the drift package are official replicas of full-size Toyo Proxxes R1R high-spec performance tires, moulded in a super-stiff, hard plastic that is perfect for scale drifting and really looks the part! These low-profile drift-specific tires are made for high-performance, realistic RC drift action! HPI drift tires are the ideal way to get drifting quickly and easily. The replica tread pattern looks fantastic, and only gets better with age as the tires wear down, just like the real thing! 

ALL-NEW TF-50 & RF-50 Radio Set

The Sport 3 is easy to drive with the included steering wheel controller! The TF-50 2.4Ghz FHSS transmitter debuted in HPI Racing kits in 2022 and features a drop-down foam-covered steering wheel which can be swapped for left-handed drivers, rubber grips and bumpers, digital on-off switch, magnetic body clip attachment, audible battery warning, plus servo reverse, end point adjustment, trim and dual rate adjustments. Working in perfect harmony with the TF-50 is the new RF-50 receiver, which features a fully silicone-sealed circuit board and built-in failsafe system!
