The Most Amazing Nurburgring Save Is a Rollover Nightmare

Nurburgring saves come in all shapes and sizes, but the one we have here is special. In fact, it might just be the best save we've ever shown you, even though we can fully call it a save.

You can check out the unbelievable (this is an understatement) save in the clips at the bottom of the page. The second video (the one on the right) even brings us the in-car perspective, which shows exactly how things went from hey-sliding-is-fun to I'm-going-to-die pretty quickly.

Why can't we call it a proper save?

Well, that's because, as somebody who presumably is the ower of the Daihatsu Cuore involved in the adventure explains on YouTube, the adventure did cause some damage to the little car - perhaps this is the spotter, who talked to the guy behind the wheel.

Here's the list of problems mentioned: Damaged wheels, damaged windshield, doors and front fender miss aligned, suspension damaged, too much camber on front wheel.

Curiously, the footage stops soon after the car comes to a halt, so we don't know how the driver ended the lap.

There's one more thing we need to mention before inviting you to check out the footage

We didn't want to pollute the article with a ton of asterisks, but there were required here and there. We're referring to the places where we mentioned this is the most amazing Ring save*.

*this title only applies to machines with four or more wheels. And that's because motorcycles deserve an accolade of their own. As you know, these toys require one to work with his or her body weight when cornering, so rather extreme laws apply when aiming to avoid a ka-bang.

For the record (pun intended), here's a biker pulling a save by bouncing off the guardrail at around 100 mph.
