These Nurburgring Crashes Are Crazy!

Grab your popcorns, folks!

The Nurburgring plays host to a lot of cars. Whether it’s for sport, for testing, or for casual spins around the track, there’s always something going on in the Ring. That includes car crashes. As exciting as it is to see cars do laps around the track, there’s also a reason why the Nurburgring is oftentimes referred to as the “Green Hell.” Watch this video and find out why car crashes occur as often at the Nurburgring as fast laps.

Extreme Weather Conditions and The Nurburgring Just Don’t Mix

It seems a lot of people love watching car crashes on YouTube, especially when they are from racetracks. With this in mind, one YouTube channel has definitely found its niche. The channel Auto Addiction frequently uploads videos from the most challenging racetracks in the world – the Nurburgring.

Crash Testing a Koenigsegg is Expensive, So The Company Has a Novel Solution

Crash Testing a Koenigsegg is Expensive, So The Company Has a Novel Solution

Can you imagine throwing away a $2 million car?

Every automaker that builds road-going cars has to comply with the same safety standards in every market their vehicles are sold in. That means that even small companies like Koenigsegg must meet the same standards as mass-production companies like Chevrolet, Ford, Mercedes, and the like. Well, for these massive companies, crashing 10 $30,000 dollar cars isn’t a big deal – it’s relatively cheap in the grand scheme of things, and it doesn’t hurt inventory numbers in any way, shape or form. Most companies even allocate a certain number of vehicles to crash testing. For Koenigsegg, though, the company only builds a handful of cars and the process is nowhere near as simple as it is for Chevy to build a Cruze of Mercedes to build an A-Class – everything is custom, everything is expensive, and crash testing even one model could be a very expensive, even disrupting ordeal to the company. But, the solution is really a simple one – Koenigsegg crash tests the same car over and over again.

Crashing a Car at 40 MPH Is Terrifying, But Crashing at 130 MPH Is a Recipe for Disaster

Crashing a Car at 40 MPH Is Terrifying, But Crashing at 130 MPH Is a Recipe for Disaster

Brace yourselves for what you’re about to see

Watching a car travel 40 miles per hour straight into a barrier often results in the car getting walloped, but what if that same car was going three times faster at 130 mph and then slams into a stationary bus? The results are indescribable, but we do get to see the scene unfold before our eyes courtesy of YouTube channel Bri4ka.

The video isn’t in English so it might be a little difficult to follow. Fortunately, the visuals that you’ll see are about as straightforward as they can get. The objective is clear, too. A remote-controlled second-generation Opel Omega and a decommissioned city bus are the sacrificial lambs in this test. At the very least, the test gives us a glimpse of what can happen if a car traveling twice the speed limit in the U.S. hits a parked city bus. Before you watch it, be advised that the results are unspeakably destructive.

This is NOT How You Want to Find Your Chevy C8 Corvette

This is NOT How You Want to Find Your Chevy C8 Corvette

It’s a different interpretation of the drop my car challenge, that’s for sure

Online trending challenges have become the rage these days. Some challenges like the Ice Bucket Challenge caught one because they were tied to a larger and very important cause. Other challenges like the Tide Pod Challenge were stupid and dangerous and should never have even started. Somewhere between those two challenges lies the “drop your car challenge.” Nothing about this challenge served a higher purpose, but there’s also nothing dangerous about it. The purpose of this challenge is simple: show off your car. That’s it. It’s an ultimately harmless exercise that revolves simply letting everyone see what your car is. Or at least that’s what we thought until we saw this photo of a Chevrolet Corvette C8, or whatever’s left of it. This is a different interpretation of the “drop_your_car_challenge,” and, unfortunately, it’s not a very pleasant one.

You'll Definitely Believe What Happens To This Mustang Doing Donuts

You’ll Definitely Believe What Happens To This Mustang Doing Donuts

Being careful won’t make you look cool, but it’ll keep your ’Stang from meeting this fate

Just because the rooftop parking lot is empty, that doesn’t mean you can just go there and do donuts to your heart’s content. Sure, the empty space is great for these burnout runs, but the debauchery can also go sideways at a moment’s notice, especially if you’re not careful. Two people found that out first-hand when they went to an empty rooftop parking lot, intending to leave rubber in concrete. After doing a serious of burnouts, the driver inexplicably loses control of his rear-wheel-drive ‘Stang, causing the muscle car to slam cleanly into a light pole. Worse, the whole bone-headed scene was captured on video by a couple, who were also at the rooftop parking in their own Mustang doing whatever it is they were doing. Fortunately, the driver and passenger of the crashed ‘Stang didn’t appear to get seriously hurt from the crash. Unfortunately, the same can’t be said for their prized ‘Stang, which now has a long date with mechanics before it gets back up on its feet, or, in this case, all four wheels.

Invaluable McLaren Senna LM Gets Trashed By Former F1 Driver

Invaluable McLaren Senna LM Gets Trashed By Former F1 Driver

Monaco is the scene of yet another saddening supercar wreck

The McLaren Senna is without a shadow of a doubt among the single craziest road cars we’ve ever seen. Boasting active aerodynamics, the sort of stuff that isn’t even allowed in racing, the Senna is more than just a 720S on steroids. With 790 horsepower on tap coming from an upgraded version of the 720S’ V-8, it’s menacing to drive, and that’s still the case even if you’re a former Formula 1 driver as Adrian Sutil apparently found out over the weekend when he rammed a lamp post with his Senna. What gets us to tears is that the car isn’t even a normal Senna, instead, it’s a Senna LM of which only 20 exist.

Need Reasons To Weep? Look At This Ferrari F40 That Someone Crashed

Need Reasons To Weep? Look At This Ferrari F40 That Someone Crashed

Good thing Ferrari made over 1,000 of these

For many, the Ferrari F40 is still representative of Maranello’s finest hour, a 471-horsepower winged monster designed to squash its opposition at every corner while completely disregarding the needs of the driver and passenger.

Ferrari only wanted to make a handful of them to mark its 40th year in the business but the orders poured in and, in the end, over 1,300 cars were made. Looking at this F40 that ended up in a ditch somewhere in Australia that’s a good thing.

Here's What a Side Impact From an F-150 Looks Like to the Tesla Model 3's Side Cameras

Here’s What a Side Impact From an F-150 Looks Like to the Tesla Model 3’s Side Cameras

See the crash from a different perspective; quite literally

A lot of car crashes happen at intersections. Here’s the latest example that has come to light. A Ford F-150 jumped a red signal and crashed into a Tesla Model 3. Thankfully, this wasn’t a fatal crash, and in fact, the Model 3 held up pretty well. Even though it wasn’t a high-speed crash, a truck crashing into a sedan from the side can get devastating. Along with the front camera view, the Tesla owner also released a video that shows the crash recorded by the Tesla’s side camera.

Driver in a Gemballa Mirage GT Goes Postal in Manhattan

There were no casualties, so let this incident be a lesson learned

While we were nicely tucked in inside our homes doing our best to cope with isolation, some random dude decided it’s a good idea to take his 1 of 25 Gemballa Mirage GT out on the empty streets of New York.

Nothing wrong here, of course, as long as he remained within the confines of the law. Which he didn’t, causing him to end up crashing into multiple vehicles.

People Have Figured Out How To Activate The Dyno Mode On A Tesla And It Has Become A Nuisance Already

Be smart, be safe, and DO NOT try it on public roads!

The bird is finally out of the cage. The secret is out in the open. Too dramatic, right? Well, it looks like some folks have figured out how to activate the Dyno mode on the Tesla Model 3.

When activated, this mode disables all the safety systems so that the car can be tested on the dynamometer to its full potential. The company never officially announced the feature, but an EPA finding revealed the hidden gimmick to the public. Although the company hid it so that people couldn’t misuse it, the cat is now out of the bag. Is this good or bad for Tesla?

Ouch: Pickup Truck Crashes on Detroit Highway, Destroys Two Shelby GT500s in the Process

That’s a very sad sight for car fanatics

Some performance happen to come with their fate written. More often than not, they are involved in high-speed crashes. But, sometimes, they are wasted even before they hit the roads.

A couple of drool-worthy 2020 Ford Mustang Shelby GT500s are the latest fatalities in this case. The cars were being transported when the trailer carrying them spun out and threw them on their sides. Interestingly, one of the owners belongs to the Ford clan. How about that now?
