Toyota GT 86 Nearly Crashes at Nurburgring [Video]
text size: A- A+
Coming out of high speed corner, his car comes out wide, gets caught in the gravel speed trap and almost crashes into the walls of the famous Nurburgring. Just listen to the crowd’s applause as he rescues it at the very last moment possible.
The Toyota GT 86 has a high-revving engine in the front and traction going to the back. It’s also quite light and direct, which makes it the perfect track car, right? Well, not really.
You see, the car has 215/40 R18 tires at the front and 225/40 R18 ones at the back. While I’d stop short of saying they are Prius tires, they are basically the same as on a family car. That doesn’t matter if you’re going about your daily business, but at really high speed it becomes an issue.
