It refers to a car that is good for drifting, which basically means letting the rear end of a car slide around a corner. Rear-wheel drive cars, for example.

If The Fast and the Furious is any authority on the matter, it would be a car that has a strong tendency to drift, or enter into a controlled (or semi-controlled) skid when turning.

According to a trailer (which anyone can feel free to link), the car tends to be light and the tires slick.

I would think it refers to the ability of the car to "drift", basically to go into a controlled skid.
