• Video: Nurburgring Crash Compilation

    Like seeing expensive metal getting twisted into small heaps of shrapnel? This is the video for you.

There’s a reason why the Nurburgring is called the “Green Hell." Many cars have fallen victim to its treacherous twists and turns, often resulting in twisted wrecks and forlorn car owners. This video will show you exactly why the ’Ring has earned that infamous nickname.

2014 has been an eventful year in the Nurburgring. Some automakers have braved it and come away with breathtaking lap times, while others haven’t been as lucky. In this video, we take a look at the latter group and see some of the most incredible car crashes that have taken place inside the ‘Ring.

Trust me when I tell you that this video is not for the faint of heart. If you can stomach watching regular cars, sports cars, race cars, and some of the finest exotic metal in the world get turned into massive heaps of twisted alloys then you can probably get through the entire eight-minute video with your faculties still intact.

But if you’re the queasy type, I can only do so much as to warn you about the perils that come with watching this video. I’m not going to hold it against you if you can’t last through the whole thing, but rest assured, you’re going to be really sick afterward.

So brace yourselves before you hit "play."

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
