Imagine taking an angle grinder and a drill to a perfectly good fender. That's what it took to flare the fenders of the E55 AMG Drift Machine in the latest episode of Dapper Drift.
There's something about a widebody kit that just kind of...works. Sure, there are bad examples of this out there in the automotive world, but a subtle, tasteful fender flare, especially when the car is black on black, gives it that extra bit of character.
And that's exactly what Denis Ivanov, FCP Euro's in-house developer and resident drift expert, did to his 2003 Mercedes-Benz E55 AMG—except he did the home-brewed version, hacking his fender with shop tools and some painter's tape.
In our ongoing video series, Dapper Drift, we follow Denis as he turns this run-of-the-mill E55 AMG into one of the coolest and most unique (and functional!) drift cars ever built.
