Chris Harris and David Coulthard Manhandle a 220SE (W111) on The Nurburgring [Video]
In short, the pair - along with a French journalist that may or may not have chosen not to be a part of their shenanigans in the following video – took upon themselves to race a 1963 Mercedes-Benz 220 SE (W111) on the famed Nurburgring circuit.
The race took place back in June 2013 and it should have been three-hours long. Unfortunately, the giant (for its era) “Heckflosse” (Fintail in German) pretty much destroyed its gearbox after Chris Harris drove it for about an hour and a half.
The race's end isn't that important though, so don't worry about the spoiler we gave above, since the footage is both inspiring and enjoyable even if you know the result. We already knew Chris Harris, so the interesting bit came when seeing how down to Earth and funny David Coulthard actually is.
On top of that, the Mercedes-Benz 220 SE, wafting its heavy but beautiful body across the Nordschleife curves isn't far from providing some classic car eye-candy.
