Nissan GT-R and Ferrari 458s Race like Motorcycles on Malaysian Highway

Drivers and cool bikers alike are offended by those people who like to get on two wheels and split highway lanes at triple-digit speeds as if this was a professional activity. Sometimes, certain drivers must be really confused, perhaps believing they’re on bikes and squeezing through the other cars accordingly.

This is exactly what happened on a Malaysian highway recently, with a small group of supercars racing in full traffic. A Nissan GT-R battles it out with two Ferrari 458s, one of which appears to be touched by German tuning company Mansory.

As the uploader of the clip explains, the irresponsible act took place on the Karak Highway, a 37-mile (60 km) stretch of road that links Karak to Kuala Lumpur, the country’s capital city.

We’re not quite sure about the camera car, which appears to be more than able to keep up with the bunch of high-hp-low-IQ people in the clip. We tend to regard such behavior as material worthy of research, so, in the name of science, we’re asking you to help us with any clue on the make and model you might have.

In fact, this clip could very well serve as the perfect example of what not to do when out on the highway. From lane-splitting to tailgating and overtaking maneuvers that defy any form of logic, it’s all compiled in here.

The side effects are nasty

Such behavior also has serious side effects for the car aficionado community. For instance, we have to understand police officers are only human, no matter how objective they try to be. Thus, every time they come across such examples, there's a risk that, somewhere in the back of their mind, they make a note about supercar drivers.

Then there's the pressure coming from the other drivers. Don't expect them to treat you nicely when you're in a Prancing Horse after a Ferrari driver like the one in the clip below passes them. Let's hope people keep an open mind out there.
