Remember when Ricky Bobby lost all of his driving mojo and had to be helped out by a cougar so he could remember how to be a bad-ass racer again? We’re asking this because, apparently, taking your pet cats – and we don’t mean the little, domesticated ones – out for a leisurely joy ride is something that isn’t just happening in movies these days.

This footage was taken in Russia after a car spots an Audi TT on the ride with a most peculiar head sticking out of the passenger side window. As the car got closer to the Audi, they realized that there really was a head, only that it didn’t belong to a human. It belonged to a leopard.

Yes, a leopard - those ferocious, feline beasts that can literally devour us if they so please. Turns out that this car didn’t want anything carnivorous to eat; all it wanted was a nice, cool breeze on its whiskers.

You gotta see it to believe it.

Automotive Aftermarket Expert -
Kirby’s first exposure into the world of automobiles happened when he caught Knight Rider on television as a five-year old boy. David Hasselhoff didn’t leave much of an impression on him (that happened later on in Baywatch), but KITT certainly did. To this day, Kirby remains convinced that he will one day own a car with the same ‘spirit’ as the original KITT (not the 2008 monstrosity). He doesn't know when that will be, but until then, he’s committed to expressing his love for KITT, and all cars for that matter, here at TopSpeed.  Read More

Well that was cute. I wonder who was driving the car. Was it Ricky or his Dad? I guess somebody wants to be a racer. He should have just placed some phony drugs in his car and called the cops no himself like what Ricky’s dad has done.

That leopard seems to enjoy the view on the window. I would like to be a passenger or even an owner of an Audi TT
