Michael Essa at Yas Marina Circuit [VIDEOS]

If you follow drifting at all, Michael Essa’s BMW 350R is a familiar face. His BMW 350R shook things up in the 2010 Formula Drift season, and his M5 V10’s exhaust note was music to all of our ears. Michael Essa was recently invited to the Formula Drift Abu Dhabi Invitational at Yas Marina Circuit, where he took time to show off what makes his BMW 350R tick.

The added weight brought on by the V10 engine swap had Michael calling our name to help bring down the weight and bring the 350R to it’s fullest potential. Our Seibon Carbon Fiber hood and trunk can be seen on Michael Essa’s 350R which help shave valuable pounds off the car, while making it one of the most attractive cars on the circuit. See the car in action below:

Be sure to catch Michael Essa and the BMW 350R in action once again on March 18th as he does battle once again at the Formula Drift Global Challenge in Qatar. Good luck Michael!
