The scariest passenger rides ever
As onboard footage of 180mph Porsche spinout surfaces, here are more terrifying passenger rides
Posted: 16 May 2014
Here is a video showing a terrifying spin-out in a 1300bhp twin-turbo Porsche 911. It's dash-cam footage of an incident the driver refers to as "a helluva ride".
Here is another video showing quite possibly the World's Calmest Driver. It's dash-cam footage of a lady who - faced with a barrel roll on a wet road - manages to completely keep her composure and personal dignity in what appears to be a really bloody scary crash.
Thankfully she appears unharmed by the incident. And judging by the video, she also appears completely and utterly indifferent. "Yeah my car slid off the road and I barrel-rolled into a nearby field. Meh."
TopGear.com is really quite glad no injury came as a result of this incident. TopGear.com also really respects the driver's sheer bravado in not freaking out. Which got us thinking...
A little while ago, we gave you many funny examples of when passengers are given hot laps in fast cars and completely and utterly lose all personal decorum and etiquette. You even sent us more examples (in the comments below) of people being scared senseless in such situations, and we felt it necessary to relive this wonderful collection of videos.
So thanks for all your suggestions, and click through for some light hilarity. And a warning that, should a competent driver ever offer you a passenger ride in something quick, make sure the camera's switched off first. Or don't.
