BMW Z3 Coupe vs. Lamborghini Huracan Nurburgring Chase Leads to Near Crash

If you're planning to hit the Nurburgring in a supercar, there are only two ways of making it round the track while enjoying yourself. You should either be on top of your game (knowing your car isn't nearly enough, as you must also master each and every section of the Green Hell) or decide to not care about any potential Ring residents that might hunt you down.

To ilustrate what usually happens when such a go-fast machine hits the Nordschleife, we've brought along the piece of footage at the bottom of the page. The clip shows a BMW Z3 Coupe that decides to see if it can keep up with a Lamborghini Huracan.

The Z3 in question isn't the M model, though. Instead, we're dealing with a 2.8 model featuring a few circuit-savvy mods. In fact, those of you who are tuned into our Nurburgring tales might be familiar with this car, since its driver constantly gives us reasons to talk about the infamous German track, albeit while behind the wheel of a Z4 M Coupe.

Unlike other adventures of the sort, this one wasn't exactly smooth for the driver of the Bavarian machine, as a fluid spill reportedly threatened to send his car into the guardrail.

If you happen to be in a rush, you'll find this white-knuckle moment at the 5:37 point of the clip. Nevertheless, we'd stick around for the rest of the video, since we're talking about all sorts of stick shift Ring action here.

Now, you might be wondering what goes through the mind of somebody who engages in such an underdog-fueled chase. Well, the Bimmer wielder took the time to share his thoughts with us in the description of the video.

"Lamborghini Huracan vs BMW Z3 Coupé (2.8) on a drying, but in the shade very slippery damp Nordschleife. Some oil/coolant in Bergwerk needed some swift action to prevent a crash. In the end big horse power won the day," the Ring aficonado explained.
