Nissan 350Z Crashes at Nurburgring Tourist Track Day

On paper, the Nissan 350Z is a sportscar. It looks sporty, encourages you to drive sporty and has a sporty nose coming from that big V6 engine. In many ways, it's built like a sportscar: engine at front, manual gearbox at the middle and rear-wheel drive at the back.

But while it does all that, it's not a true sportscar in the sense that you can't drive it to the limit. The 350Z is more of a cruiser, which you drive at 8/10 to ensure it's safe and maintain traction.

Want proof? Here's what happens when you take a corner to fast in the Z at the Nurburgring. You run wide and hit a barrier during this weekend's tourist track day. The owner of this car, which looks suspiciously like a Senner tuned one, had to pay not only for the damages to his car but for those to the track. He smashed a 12 meters of side barrier and the track authorities made him pay €1,200 to replace them. Ouch!

Mihnea's favorite cars have already been built, the so-called modern classics from the '80s and '90s.
