Best Car Videos of the Week: A Super Limited Edition, Flying Cars, and Great Sounds
Maybe you didn’t know this, but the famed Nurburgring race track in Germany is open to the public. Not all the time, mind you, but occasionally a guy such as you or me can take our Ford Focus to the track and turn some laps.
Doing so is a dream for many of us. So imagine casually shooting the apexes, then looking in your rear-view mirror and seeing what Top Gear calls a “jet-black vessel of violence” quickly approaching. Anything’s possible on the ‘Ring!
That’s the kind of stuff that makes for great video, along with flying cars (a Subaru that’s supposed to and a Lamborghini that isn’t) and spy shots of an upcoming ultimate performance machine.
Make the jump to see the vids!

Take one 1,900-hp customized Lamborghini Gallardo, a 235-mph race run, a parachute, and combine with an unfortunate crosswind. Here is the result (amazingly, the driver walked away):
Finally, take a moment to push play on the next video, close your eyes, and let the sweet, soothing sounds of the next BMW M5 fill your heart with joy.
