Porsche Cayman GT4 vs. Lotus Exige Nurburgring Race Brutally Interrupted by a SEAT Crash

Any SEAT vehicle should know how to party. After all, we are talking about a Spanish carmaker, and you know how intense their Latino moments can get. Unfortunately for the SEAT Toledo in the video below, this crashes a Porsche vs. Lotus party. Literally.

The battle we are talking about saw a Cayman GT4 and an Exige trying to find out which car-driver combination is faster on the 'Ring. That seems like one of the best duels we've discussed in a while. Both these machines are all about the perfect balance and seeing the battle would've been nothing short of delicious.

However, the SEAT ruined the moment, while also crashing in the process. You can see the sedan coming out of a straight, which could've allowed it to hit over 100 mph (160 km/h), in a sideways state.

While the driver isn't a stranger to hooning maneuvers, he clearly needs to sharpen up his reactions. With the car swinging from one side to another, quite a lot of its momentum gets killed.

At a certain point, the Toledo gets back onto the track, and you could bet a lot of money on a recovery. Alas, the guy behind the wheel makes a mess out of it, managing to hit the barrier on the side of the track in the end.

The Porsche and the Lotus can be seen slowing down in the background, but while the GT4 was leading, we have no clue of what the two were doing when the SEAT guy started his dizzy dance.

Oh well, at least the damage on the Toledo was light. We can even see the vehicle at the end of the video, with the side that hit the barrier being clearly caught on camera.

Still, we feel not to many people are showing compassion for the man behind the wheel.
