This next video has pretty much everything we need to keep us entertained: an incredible V8 soundtrack, high speed and people who risk life and limb (but know what they're doing).
Going flat out in a car with a man behind you is a time-honored American tradition. People have been setting bicycle record by sitting in slipstreams for decades. However, this isn't the Salt Lake Utah or the Bonneville Salt Flats, it's Europe and that Dodge has German license plates.

Youtuber Gumball says he filmed this incredible video yesterday. The daredevil in question is named Dirk Auer and you can clearly see he know how to push the limits of what's possible on rollerblades. Holding onto the boot of a Dodge Challenger SRT8 while it speeds to 200 km/h (124 km/h) requires nerves of steel. One bad move and you could end up in a hospital or even worse…

Dirk Auer is known across the internet as an adrenaline junkie on a mission to impress. In July 2009, he went down in he history books by skating a half-mile roller coaster at over 60mph (98 km/h). At that time, the German from Gross-Gerau conquered The Mammoth at the Trips Drill theme park in Stuttgart in one minute using specially designed skates that clamped onto the track.

Our say: As impressive as the supercharged American machine is, we want to see Dirk pull this off behind a Nissan GT-R with launch control activated.

Mihnea's favorite cars have already been built, the so-called modern classics from the '80s and '90s. He also loves local car culture from all over the world, so don't be surprised to see him getting excited about weird Japanese imports, low-rider VWs out of Germany, replicas from Russia or LS swaps down in Florida.
