I unlocked this accidentally shortly after switching the Driving Mode to "Simulation". (Found in the Game section of the Options menu)

I took a 90 degree corner at high speed and fishtailed, then fishtailed a few more times as I repeatedly over-corrected my drift. facepalm

With the Driving Mode set to Simulation the back end of your starting car (the Samson Drifter) is very loose and it's very easy to keep sliding around for five seconds. Doesn't need to be a "proper" drift or even one continuous drift, just fishtail around for five seconds and this achievement is yours.
