Built for cross-country duty in a terrifically, angularly Tuetonic way, the G-Class, and its sportiest variant, the G55 AMG, is no exactly the first vehicle you'd think of when you think "drift."

And this wet roundabout isn't exactly the forum for real drifting, but the quantity of opposite lock and the magnitude of the G-wagen's body roll (if lifts the inside tire at points) qualifies this as hoonage par excellence. Enjoy.
