In July 2021, the Los Santos Tuners update introduced Tuner Cars to Grand Theft Auto (GTA) Online. Presently, there are a total of 19 Tuner Cars available in the game, and many of them hold significant value for collectors. These cars are widely acclaimed for their affordability and impressive performance. Additionally, one notable skill of Tuner Cars is their ability to drift.

Drifting has emerged as a highly popular activity during free-mode gameplay in GTA Online. With the introduction of Low Grip Tires, players now have the option to equip them on any car, allowing for some degree of drifting. However, certain cars excel in this skill more than others. Presented below are the top 8 Tuner Cars that offer exceptional drifting capabilities in GTA Online.

1. Obey Tailgater S

In GTA Online, the Obey Tailgater S is a version of Michael De Santa's car from the game's story mode. Its design takes inspiration from the Audi RS3 Sedan, featuring a long and wide body. The Tailgater S is equipped with Rear-Wheel Drive, which aids in executing drifts. Additionally, its weight of 1,340 KG contributes to maintaining balance and providing good traction, ensuring control during drifting maneuvers.

To acquire the Obey Tailgater S, players have two options: they can either purchase it at its full price of $1,495,000 or unlock its Trade Price of $1,121,250. With a relatively affordable investment, players gain access to a car that performs decently, reaching a top speed of 115.75 mph or 186.28 km/h.

2. Karin Futo GTX

The Karin Futo GTX stands among the top drift cars available in GTA Online. It possesses a relatively lightweight build, and while its stock tires offer average traction at best, swapping them out for Low Grip Tires obtained from the LS Car Meet greatly enhances its sliding capabilities. The Futo GTX's compact design pays homage to the real-life Toyota Sprinter Trueno AE86, and it can reach a maximum speed of 119.75 mph or 192.72 km/h.

3. Karin Sultan RS Classic

In the game, the Karin Sultan RS Classic belongs to the Sports Cars category. While its top speed of 117.50 mph or 189.10 km/h may be surpassed by many other cars in its class, it remains an excellent choice for drifting. Despite lacking a Rear-Wheel-Drive system, the combination of the Sultan RS Classic's weight and the utilization of Low Grip Tires proves to be highly effective.

In GTA Online, the Pfister Comet S2 stands out as one of the swiftest Tuner Cars, capable of reaching an impressive top speed of 123.00 mph or 197.95 km/h. Surprisingly, it also proves to be an excellent choice for drifting within the game. With its weight of 1,550 KG, the vehicle maintains a balanced distribution of traction on the front wheels, preventing it from spinning out of control.

6. Karin Futo GTX

The Karin Futo in Grand Theft Auto draws inspiration from the Toyota AE86, appealing to players with a fondness for 80's style cars. While the liveries for this sports car may not be particularly impressive, its true value lies in its extensive upgrade options.

Players have the freedom to customize almost every aspect of the Karin Futo, making it a top choice for those looking to create unique designs. Although its top speed may not be extraordinary, the acceleration is something that any player can take pride in. However, the handling falls somewhat short for players seeking an exceptional drifting experience.

7. Annis ZR350

The ZR350, formerly known as ZR-350, is a two-door sports car that made its debut in Grand Theft Auto Online. It was added to the game with the 1.57 Los Santos Tuners update in July 2021, alongside the fast Karin Calico. While the ZR350 offers a respectable top speed and decent acceleration, it falls short when compared to other vehicles in its class, such as the Jester RR. Additionally, its traction is subpar, making it prone to instability.

However, this revamped version of the Annis ZR350 brings notable improvements, boasting impressive speed and acceleration while still maintaining a certain level of resilience against damage.

8. Dinka RT3000

The RT3000 exhibits commendable top speed and acceleration, although its performance is significantly hindered by its extremely low traction. Upon hard launch, the vehicle experiences substantial wheelspin, which diminishes its initial acceleration potential. However, once the RT3000 gains momentum, it quickly catches up to vehicles ahead.

Despite its precise and sharp steering, the RT3000 suffers from significant oversteering and instability when navigating corners, primarily due to its poor traction. On the bright side, the vehicle excels in braking, capable of swiftly halting from high speeds, even outperforming the top-class Calico GTF in this regard.
