PostHeaderIcon Subaru WRX STI Type RA NBR Special Goes Sub-7 Minutes At The ‘Ring: Video

While some have protested that a fast Nurburgring lap time is inconsequential in the grand scope of performance standards, it remains more or less the benchmark. And for good reason – with a mix of high-speed and low-speed corners, huge elevation changes, and plenty of opportunities to get it completely wrong, the Nurburgring is one of the most technically challenging and dangerous race tracks in the world. But that didn’t stop Subaru from building a race-ready WRX STI specifically for domination at this iconic track, and now, we’ve got some onboard footage of its record breaking run from the driver’s perspective, complete with data.

Subaru announced that it broke the ‘Ring record for sedans a few months back, besting the previous record set by the Porsche Panamera Turbo by a whopping 41 seconds. However, this is no ordinary STI – as you can see in the video, the interior is completely gutted with just a single race bucket, digital gauges, and a roll cage in place to keep it safe. Making the go is 2.0-liter turbo boxer four-cylinder at full WRC-spec, pumping out in excess of 600 horsepower. So it’s not exactly production status, but either way, watching this thing attack the ‘Ring from the hot seat is a delight all the same.

PostHeaderIcon Lamborghini’s New Teaser Of The Urus SUV Is Getting Us All Pumped Up

Excuse me for a second for taking a break from the whirlwind that is the 2017 Frankfurt Motor Show. Given all the head-spinning induced by all these debuts, I think it’s time for a little breather. Let me divert your collective attentions for a quick minute and tell you about a car that’s making headlines, not because it showed up in Frankfurt, but because it’s debuting three months from now in December 2017. That car, ladies and gentlemen, is the Lamborghini Urus, and just as the Italian automaker is grabbing people’s attention in Frankfurt with the Aventador Roadster S, the Italian supercar company has its sight sets on its next big thing.

Truth be told, far too much has been said about the Urus SUV over the years. From skepticism to excitement, doubt to giddiness, Lambo has put us through an emotional roller-coaster with regards to the Urus. And now that it’s three months away from finally making its world debut, the Raging Bull is continuing to build up the hype by releasing a minute-long trailer revolving around the message that Lamborghini is a pioneer above all else. Even the trailer’s title – #SinceWeMadeItPossible – touches on that message, as does the content itself, which pretty much describes Lamborghini as an innovator, rule-breaker, and challenger to the status quo. Regardless of what most of us think of these boasts, it’s hard to argue against any of them when the evidence of the company’s innovation is the very reason why we’re circling December 4 in our calendars. The Urus SUV is finally arriving, folks. Best to save the date this early.

PostHeaderIcon IT’S ALIVE – E36 Drifts Again After Burning Up in Garage Fire: Video

Drift cars are probably some of the most abused race machines out there (rally cars are pretty close, though). Between living at the rev limiter and bouncing off the barriers, these slideways stars are usually held together with little more than zip ties and dreams. Indeed, dents and bruises are marks of honor in the drift tribe – garage queens need no apply. And that’s why it makes sense to see this charred E36 Bimmer coming back from the dead for a little opposite lock glory, complete with a brand new charcoal exterior finish.

Apparently, this particular E36 was stuck in a garage fire, which singed the exterior and interior to a crisp. But hey, who needs flashy paint and silly carpets in a race car, right? Now, the Bimmer is back in the action, getting tail happy and making a little smoke of its own. Hilariously, the owner decided to keep the charred exterior as is. Maybe this is the new trend everyone will follow instead of the typical flat black rattle can jobs you see everywhere nowadays. Ditch the spray paint, and grab the blow torch. All we gotta say is – well done.

PostHeaderIcon Underground Racing Twin-Turbo Lambo Huracan Goes 257 MPH In Standing Half Mile: Video

Introduced in March of 2014 at the Geneva Motor Show as a follow-up to the Gallardo, the Huracan is currently Lamborghini’s most popular model, selling in droves across a variety of markets. And why not – making it go is a mid-mounted 5.2-liter V-10, which routes as much as 631 horsepower and 443 pound-feet of torque through a dual-clutch seven-speed transmission. Properly motivated, the 0-to-62 mph sprint is dispatched in 3 seconds dead, while top speed eclipses the 200-mph mark. All very impressive stuff, no doubt, but as is the case, there are some out there who simply crave more. Enter Underground Racing, a U.S.-based tuner that specializes in adding absurd amounts of boost to exotics like the aforementioned Lambo. If you’ve got the money, Underground Racing has the parts you need to scorch the airstrip, as evidenced by this quick 3-minute video.

Shot at the recent Half-Mile Indy Airstrip Attack Event in Marion, Indiana, this video shows what happens when you keep the loud pedal pinned for an extended period of time. All told, the boosted Bull manages an impressive 256.99 mph at the end of the tarmac, a figure made even more impressive when you consider this a full-fledged street car with a full interior. Foot down, head back, and go.

PostHeaderIcon This is Not the Way to Trade your Mercedes SLK for a Tesla Model S

Imagine for a minute that you’re a Tesla salesman and beautiful San Francisco, California and just got back from your overpriced lunch. You take a deep breath and smell the air that is the glory of your liberated EV showroom. You’ve had a good week so far, sold a couple of cars, then all of the sudden: BAM, Crash, Smack. You look up, and there’s a Mercedes SLK staring you in the face with a (presumably) scared senior citizen behind the wheel rocking out to AC/DC and sporting his bald-man mullet. What the hell just happened here? Well, as much as I would like to report that some Mercedes driver has just had enough with all of this damn EV, ICE-killing drama that’s plaguing the automotive market place, I really have to report that this old man simply made a huge mistake while attempting to overtake some vehicles but using a bus lane.

As the story goes, our old friend was hoping to pass some traffic in a bus lane, but as it turns out that bus lane was about to end. He said that he thought it was a third lane, but come on – we all know better. He then panicked and tried to hit the brake, but put the accelerator to the floor instead. As a result, he jumped a curb, smucked a tree, shot across a crosswalk, took out a mail box, sign, and traffic control box, then wedge his SLK into a Tesla showroom. Fortunately, and we’re not sure how, nobody was seriously injured, but the Tesla showroom is now tasked with replacing a pair of ridiculously large 15-foot tall glass windows. A BMW 5 Series did take some minor damage as a result of the accident too, but it will likely drive another day. As for that SLK, well, It’s not likely it’ll see the light of day again.

On a different note, I have to say this vaguely reminds me of a certain South Park episode that addressed the concern with old folks behind the wheel. Now, not all seniors are bad drivers – I’m not going to be the guy that claims that – but this guy should certainly get an award for reminding us to watch out for Grandpa when he’s trying to find the nearest buffet, don’t you think? Check out the video that shows off the aftermath of this crazy accident below.

PostHeaderIcon Donut Media Takes A Hard Look At The Mazda RX-7: Video

Arguably one of Mazda’s most important models ever, the RX-7 offered a unique combination of low weight, sexy good looks, impeccable handling, and a funky engine configuration. Indeed, from anime to Hollywood movies, this superstar of the zoom zoom has cemented a bona-fide cult following for itself, and enthusiasts across the globe have been busy scooping up examples to get a taste of that Japanese-bred Wankel goodness. And just in case you’re drawing a blank on any of this, we found this seven-and-a-half minute explainer on everything you need to know about the RX-7, courtesy of our friends at Donut Media.

The video begins with a little background on the rotary engine, including the basics on how it works and where it came from. The video then dives into the model history, including the genesis of all things RX, the Mazda Cosmo Sport 110 from 1967. Other things of note include lots of the love for pop-up headlights, racing highlights, and quick scenes from an endless number of TV shows and Internet memes. All told, it’s a fun, relatively fast watch filled with info and loads of entertaining edits.

PostHeaderIcon Ford Australia Teases The Ranger Raptor – Big time!

Out of the blue dropped Ford’s confirmation of the 2019 Ranger Raptor – a highly capable off-roader based on the mid-size T6 Ranger pickup but with the soul of the widely loved F-150 Raptor. Without much hubbub, the Ranger Raptor’s webpage went live early September 7 as part of Ford Australia’s main website. Included is a short video that teases the truck’s capabilities and rugged underpinnings. Many details still remain unknown, but Ford did confirm the Ranger Raptor will come in 2018 within the Asia Pacific market, which includes Australia and New Zealand.

The video offers a clear look the Ranger Raptor’s front suspension system, especially the lower control arm. It’s a beefy slug of aluminum and looks very similar to the F-150 Raptor’s. The MacPherson struts are devoid of branding, however, though we’d bet Fox Racing is a shoe-in. Sadly, we can’t see the rear suspension. Rumors are running rampant of a multi-link system with coil springs and a Watts Link attached to a solid axle. Confirmation of the powertrain is also missing. Some say the Ranger Raptor will use the same High Output 3.5-liter EcoBoost found the in F-150 Raptor, while others say the Ranger’s 3.2-liter five-cylinder will be used. We’re leaning toward the standard 3.5-liter EcoBoost used in less radical F-150s. There it makes 375 horsepower and 470 pound-feet of torque. We’re also betting strongly on the 10-speed automatic transmission being the only choice.
And what would a modern Raptor be without Baja Mode and the rest of the 4WD selectable setting? Ford could officially debut the Raptor at the upcoming Frankfurt Auto Show starting September 14, so stay tuned to TopSpeed for that.

Read our full speculative review on the 2019 Ford Ranger Raptor here.

PostHeaderIcon Dodge Viper ACR Almost Breaks Seven Minutes At The Nürburgring: Video

It may not have succeeded in reclaiming the Nürburgring production car lap record from the Lamborghini Huracán Performante, but finally, the Dodge Viper got the proper send-off it so richly deserves, all thanks to the passion and determination of the Viper Owners Association. Relentless in their pursuit of Nürburgring glory, members of the group continued to bang in laps around the Nürburgring in an effort to unseat the Huracán Performante’s record lap time of 6:52.01. It failed to even get close, but that shouldn’t take away from the accomplishment of squeezing in a lap time of 7:01.3 around the 12.9-mile lap.

Yep. Against all odds, drivers Dominik and Mario Farnbacher and all the people involved in the endeavor managed to improve on its previous fastest lap of 7:03.23, coming a second over actually breaking the seven-minute barrier. The achievement is made even more impressive by the fact that these Viper owners had little to no help from Dodge or FCA to bring the Viper ACR to the famed German track. The collective relied on a fund-raising effort and a few sponsors to even come this far in their quest and while they did fall short of their ultimate goal (the Huracan was still nine seconds faster around the track) they have nothing to be ashamed about.

They did what FCA and Dodge should’ve done in the first place. They gave the Viper a proper tribute and had they not crashed out, who knows if they could’ve really broken that all-too precious seven-minute barrier. It doesn’t matter now, nor should it because the Viper Owners Association represented the Viper about as well as they could. Well done, guys.

PostHeaderIcon Kimi Raikkonen Actually Cracked A Smile While Driving The Alfa Romeo Guilia Quadrifoglio: Video

Kimi Raikkonen is a robot. Kimi Raikkonen has the emotional capacity of a cardboard cut-out of himself. Kimi Raikkonen cracks a smile about as often as a total solar eclipse. We’ve all read and heard about the stone-faced demeanor of the Ferrari F1 driver and former world champion. This is the same guy, after all, who once famously said on national television that he was dropping a deuce during a tribute for F1 legend Michael Schumacher. Yet for all of his “Iceman” moments, Raikkonen is also regarded as one of the best race car drivers in the world today, and together with teammate and four-time champion Sebastian Vettel and Antonio Giovinazzi, Ferrari’s third F1 driver, the Iceman put those skills to the test for a day in the track onboard the Alfa Romeo Giulia Quadrifoglio.

The following video here is what happens when you get Raikkonen, Vettel, and Giovinazzi to race the wheels of the 505-horsepower Giulia Quadrifoglio. You get lots of smoke, plenty of sideways action, and an actual smile creep in to the face of the Finn. For what it’s worth, it’s hard to tell what’s more shocking between seeing the Giulia Quadrifoglio perform the way it did on the track with three F1 drivers driving it or the fact that Raikkonen seems to be having a ball of a time in the car. My money’s on the latter since the sight of a smiling Raikkonen is worthy enough to actually steal some of the spotlight away from the car he’s driving. Either way though, it’s good to see the three Ferrari racers enjoy themselves with Alfa’s new performance sedan. Heck, if the Giulia Quarifoglio actually made Kimi smile, that’s vindication of the sedan’s prowess in it of itself already.

PostHeaderIcon The Fastest Car In The World Is A Ford?!

The title for “fastest car in the world” is a pretty hotly contested one. Officially, the old Bugatti Veyron Super Sport holds the record at 268 mph. The new Bugatti Chiron is estimated to reach speeds of nearly 280, but it hasn’t been officially tested yet. And then we have the Hennessey Venom GT which hit 210, technically beating the Veyron, but there are several factors that disqualify it from meeting Guinness Records requirements.

PostHeaderIcon What Happens when you Cross Fast & Furious with Gone in 60 Seconds? Overdrive: Video

Let’s be real for a minute. We all love action-packed movies focused around cars. We love watching things go boom, and when there’s a good story involved, it’s even better. Sure, the Fast and Furious franchise may be starting to get a little overplayed, especially now that Paul Walker is no longer with us, yet people still flock to theaters to see the next installment of the long-running series as soon as they possibly can. The last movie broke records, despite the fact that some say it’s time to lay “the family” to rest. But, the franchise didn’t die along with Paul Walker, and neither did our desire for action-packed car movies. Hence the reason we’re looking at a trailer for an all-new car movie called Overdrive, which would have one assume it’s a Fast & Furious spin-off – especially considering it was written by the same guy responsible for 2 Fast 2 Furious – but it’s really not. It does have the robbing of trucks, and some pretty sweet action scenes, too. There’s not legitimately illegal drag racing, though, but I mean that kind of went out the window after the first couple of F&F movies anyway, right?

Back to the topic at hand, Overdrive looks to be an action-packed thriller that stars Scott Eastwood, a man who starred in the latest Fast & Furious movie, and some pretty daring truck robberies that would make Dominic Toretto proud. But, there’s a little more of a twist, as this isn’t F&F. Nope, these guys are stealing cars and now you know what it’s like when you cross Gone in 60 Seconds with Fast & Furious. There are pretty girls, some sweet cars, and what appears to be a very interesting story line. The movie has already made its debut in the U.K. and will soon spread across the rest of Europe and Asia before showing up in U.S. theaters on October 6th. Some of you are naughty, though, and I know you’re already searching for a pirated version. Well, that’s on you, but don’t tell them I gave you the idea. Check out the official trailer for Overdrive below, then let us know what you think in the comments section.

PostHeaderIcon Lego’s Genius Knows No Bounds With Life-Sized Ferrari SF70H

I’m running out of superlatives to describe Lego. Really, I thought I had reached my limit when the company unveiled the life-size Lego version of the Mclaren 720S at the Goodwood Festival of Speed in July. Turns out, I was dead wrong because Lego, in all its genius, has found a way to raise its own bar yet again. Feast your eyes on this beauty, a life-sized version of Ferrari’s 2017 Formula One Race car, or as it’s otherwise known in F1 circles, the SF70H.

If the mere sight of the completed work isn’t enough to make your eyes pop out, the facts about this creation are certainly going to do it. According to Lego, every crevice of the model is made out of the studded plastic bricks, right down to the wheels, tires, and even the control knobs and gear switches on the car’s steering wheel. All in all, the model features a staggering 349,911 specific pieces. To put that in perspective, the aforementioned life-sized McLaren 720S that was presented at the Goodwood Festival of Speed “only” had 267,300 specific pieces. Adding to the ridiculousness of Lego version of the Ferrari SF70H is the fact that the whole model weighs 1,250 pounds, which is close to the actual weight of the SF70H.

PostHeaderIcon Restore Your Hot Wheels Using This Simple DIY Video

Restoring cars is hard enough work. Depending on its state, a car restoration can take months, sometimes even years to complete. I’m not here to talk about road-going cars, though. I’m talking about car restorations of a different thing entirely, the kind that Redline Restorations, a company that’s known for restoring actual classic vehicles, did for a 1968 custom Chevrolet Camaro. Except that this isn’t a full-size Camaro; it’s a Hot Wheels version.

Before you start snickering at the sight of restoring a toy car, indulge yourselves in the idea because it’s actually pretty awesome. You might even think that there are a lot of similarities between restoring a real car and a pint-sized, die-cast version after watching how Redline Restorations does it. As you can see, the ’68 Camaro has definitely seen better days to the point that “beat-up” feels like an understatement when describing its condition. That doesn’t seem to be a problem for the restoration company.

It starts off by disassembling the car’s body in order to separate it from its chassis. From there, the body is stripped of its original paint, similar to how it’s done on real cars. Things take an interesting turn after that process as both the body and chassis of the Hot Wheels car are dipped into a beaker with 75 percent phosphoric acid in it. This specific process is done in order to remove the rust collected in the car. Once that job is finished, the body is repainted and reconnected to the chassis.

It’s a relatively straightforward process, but seeing the whole thing play out is still pretty impressive. From a car that looked like it had just come off a late-night bender at a junk yard, this Hot Wheels version of the 1968 Chevrolet Camaro now looks like it’s just been taken out of the box. Check out the video and see how the whole process unfolds from start to finish. Who knows, you might be inspired by it and start doing it yourself on your Hot Wheels. Just make sure to handle that phosphoric acid very carefully.

PostHeaderIcon Oops: Newly Wed Couple Crash a Rented McLaren 650S

A wedding is supposed to be one of the happiest days in a person’s life. It’s especially important for the bride and groom, though I can argue that guests can have their own version of fun at these events. Unfortunately, things can still go awry, as one person will attest after crashing a rented McLaren 650S into a tree in what could very well be one of the most ill-timed and expensive attempts at showing off.

Specific details on what happened are still unclear, but the end result is as crystal as they come. The rented McLaren 650S incurred significant damage because the driver thought it was a good idea to mess around with the supercar’s launch control figure. I’m not sure if the driver didn’t know the purpose of launch control or he just made a mistake in engaging it; it doesn’t matter now either way. The point is that because of his tomfoolery, the 650S’ front end is barely recognizable after smooching with the tree. The hood looks like a crumpled piece of paper and both air bags actually deployed. All of that means that the 650S probably launched close to where the tree was and the suddenness of the car’s acceleration startled the driver, leaving him with precious little time to correct his error to at least avoid hitting the tree.

I don’t know who’s going to have to foot the bill for the supercar’s repairs, but I can tell you that given its state, I wouldn’t be surprised if the cost of repairs goes up to six figures. Lesson learned, folks. There’s no harm in renting a McLaren 650S for a wedding and then proudly show it off to all the other guests. Just make sure you know what you’re getting yourself into. And don’t forget to purchase the best insurance policy at the rental counter.

PostHeaderIcon Refer your Homies to Tesla, and You Might Get to Drive Godot, Elon Musk’s Prized Tunnel Digger

If you’ve been paying attention for the last few years, you know Elon Musk has a funny way of driving sales, generating money, and enticing customers. When it comes to money, the man might as well have a key to Fort Knox, and with Tesla’s referral program, he’s coming up with ways that really make you want to push your friends to jump on the EV bandwagon. As reported by Teslarati, Tesla’s newest incentive, which is currently called “Secret Level Two,” allows members of the referral program to give five more of your friends unlimited supercharging and $1,000 off of a new Model X or Model S. But, that’s not all, if all five of those people take delivery, you’ll get the chance to drive Godot and will get unlimited bragging rights to remind all of your friends that you got to take part in digging holes under cities like Los Angeles – where Musk just recently received official approval to start his mass transit tunnel.

So, get enough people to spend some $80,000 on a Tesla, and you could take place in a piece of history should Musk’s tunneling system really work out. Who knows, maybe he’ll even be nice enough to let you engrave your initials inside one of the tunnels or sign your name on Godot somewhere for the world to see. Right now, however, Godot is at rest, hibernating some 15 feet below the surface of Tesla’s parking lot in Hawthorne, California – the site of Musk’s test hole and what undoubtedly led to him getting the interest of some city officials in making his transit system a reality. Musk has even been quoted by other publications as saying “I’ve been down there on the machine and it’s mind-blowing.” Hard to believe for a machine that quite literally craws through the earth like a big earth worm, but how often do you get to take part in digging a tunnel with a beast of a machine like Godot?

PostHeaderIcon Land Rover Puts the Discovery Sport Against a Dog Sled in New “Horsepower vs Dog Power” Promo Ad

I’m one of those people who loves a good promotional video when I see one. I embrace them, take my time watching them, and in some cases, watch them repeatedly. It’s safe to say, though, that Land Rover’s new promotional ad for the Discovery Sport isn’t going to be one of those times. I do get the urge to create and develop one, so I’m not going to criticize Land Rover for the thought and purpose of the ad itself. The content of the video, on the other hand, leaves a lot to be desired.

First, let’s set up. The ad is basically a promotional stunt for the Discovery Sport, which took to an underground snow tunnel in Finland to compete against a Finnish mid-distance dog sled champion Laura Kääriäinen and her team of six beautiful huskies. The objective, it seems, is to have the Discovery Sport, with JLR principal engineer Karl Richards driving it, race against Kääriäinen in the snow-covered tunnel. The usual song-and-dance number of whoever crosses the finish line first wins it. Great, right? It probably would’ve been if the whole execution of the video made it feel completely fabricated from start to finish.

Sure, certain elements of it looked cool, including seeing the Discovery Sport putting in some good power slides on the snow. The huskies were cool too, as were the visuals. But, if Land Rover really wanted to make it a more compelling race, it probably shouldn’t have resorted to using a dog sled champion to do it and then hiding behind what I will admit is a catchy “horsepower vs dog power” tag line. Catchiness aside, it’s also unrealistic to think that a 286-horsepower SUV can lose to a dog sled team, “obstacles” notwithstanding. And, the Discovery Sport only won the race by “a nose?”

Really?

PostHeaderIcon Storm Chaser Live Streams Insane Hurricane Harvey Footage

There’s certainly no shortage of dramatic footage coming from Hurricane Harvey, but this is, without a doubt, the scariest we’ve seen thus far. Broadcast live by Jeff Piotrowski, a professional storm chaser, Emmy Award winner, and owner of nerves of steel, the video comes from Rockport, Texas, taken right smack dab in the middle of the storm as it tore its way through the state over the weekend. Roughly 1.5 million viewers looked on as Piotrowski took refuge in an open car wash with the eyewall approaching, watching the intense wind and rain slam into the area, even tearing apart the building he was using for cover. Wind speed reportedly hit as high as 150 mph, and at one point during the stream, the building Pitrowski used to protect himself and his truck is ripped apart.

The stormchaser later posted pictures and video taken from inside the eye of the storm before braving the second eyewall and dodging debris. Luckily, Pitrowsky managed to make it out unscathed, but the footage is evidence of just how hairy things got. Granted, Piotrowski is a pro with decades of experience chasing down the nastiest that Mother Nature has to offer, but still – stay safe out there.

PostHeaderIcon Watch Subaru’s Epic Mt. Washington Record Run: Video

Hill climbs almost never fail to bring the good stuff. Taking place outside the relatively safe confines of a race track and drawing a variety of makes and models to compete, these sorts of events are ripe for drama and history making. And that’s exactly what happened when Subaru Rally Team USA went to tackle Mt. Washington over the summer. With breathtaking drops, highly technical corners, and both tarmac and dirt, the Mt. Washington hill climb is a 7.5-mile, 4,600-foot monster that’s not to be trifled with.

Luckily, Subaru brought a pair of aces when it came to its driver roster, including motocross champion-turned rallyist Travis Pastrana, and Isle of Man expert David Higgins. Then there are the cars, which arrived rocking the same engine as the battle machines from the Global Rallycross series, boosted to an incredible 800 horsepower. “This is the fastest Subaru I’ve ever driven, up the craziest mountain I’ve ever driven,” says Pastrana. It’s a sentiment echoed by Higgins: “Two corners up the first practice run, that excitement turned into a pretty even split between panic and fear.” All told, this video a bit long, clocking in at around 23 minutes, but it’s definitely worth it. Expect epic editing, lots of drama, great tracking shots, a nice soundtrack, entertaining narration, and simply insane footage both inside and outside the car.

And that’s exactly what happened when Subaru Rally Team USA went to tackle Mt. Washington over the summer. With breathtaking drops, highly technical corners, and both tarmac and dirt, the Mt. Washington hill climb is a 7.5-mile, 4,600-foot monster that’s not to be trifled with.

Luckily, Subaru brought a pair of aces when it came to its driver roster, including motocross champion-turned rallyist Travis Pastrana, and Isle of Man expert David Higgins. Then there are the cars, which arrived rocking the same engine as the battle machines from the Global Rallycross series, boosted to an incredible 800 horsepower. “This is the fastest Subaru I’ve ever driven, up the craziest mountain I’ve ever driven,” says Pastrana. It’s a sentiment echoed by Higgins: “Two corners up the first practice run, that excitement turned into a pretty even split between panic and fear.” All told, this video a bit long, clocking in at around 23 minutes, but it’s definitely worth it. Expect epic editing, lots of drama, great tracking shots, a nice soundtrack, entertaining narration, and simply insane footage both inside and outside the car.
