If you watch Top Gear, they obsess about the ease of drifting the Jaguar. Clarkson loves on it in its initial test drive. Later in the show, when they compete against Australia, I'm pretty sure a Jaguar is one of the cars he chooses to drive.
The sledgehammer approach to a sportcar.
That 6.0 beast of an engine can break the rear tires loose at will, but makes the car as nose heavy as the Ayatollah.
That being said, Holden Monaros do VERY well in teh Australian touring car circuit, so they CAN be made to handle. (I'd love to see some of teh Holden parts make it to the states, the Holden bumpers are WAAY more attractive than the Pontiac "signature grilles" & some suspension tuning would turn the "Goat" into a true track star.
I like the list... it is not just "the usual suspects" it has something interesting to think about.
Other cars that could have made the list:
Nissan 350/370Z/Infinity G35/37 (same car-different trim)
Honda S2000 (watch that snap oversteer!)
Toyota MR-2 (Same as above!!!)
Porshe 911 & Cayman (Triple the above sentiment)
Police Interceptor (CrownVic, Would be Kick *** to see one clapped out in black/white, sliding sideways while running the bluberies & siren!! )
Dodge Magnum & CHarger (Police or not)
Volvo 240 Wagon (Old School!)
Toyota Tacoma X-Runner (Yes, a pickup that actually handles)
Mitsubishi 3000GT SL (The VR4 was AWD)
Those are the cars I'd considerable "memorable" to drift
