2016 Ford Focus RS And Seat Leon Cupra Battle It Out On The Nurburgring

2016 Ford Focus RS Seat Leon Cupra

Nurburgring is one of the most feared race track in the world. Richard Hammond of Top Gear UK called this German track the widow maker considering all the deaths this track has seen in all these years. Jeremy Clarkson told in one of the episodes of Top Gear,

“over the years, this track has claimed over 200 lives.”

The track was constructed back in the mid to late 1920s. Germans had started to race on the roads, and soon the government realized that there is a need for a dedicated race track like Monza in Italy.

Although it has been years since there has been any properly organized international level race event on the race track the track is still used for auto enthusiasts who come to the track with their cars to test their metal.

The track is also used for auto manufacturers around the world to test their new fast cars. The first three cars are:

6:48.00

Radical SR8

6:56.08

Porsche 918 Spyder

6:57.00

The top also includes names like Lamborghini, Nissan GTR, Lexus LFA, and Dodge Viper to name a few.
