And this is why they don't use real Porsches, Ferraris, Lamborghinis or any other expensive sports cars during the filming of street racing scenes in films like the Fast and Furious or the upcoming Need for Speed flick…
B(r)ought to you by the crew from ThatRacingChannel (TRC), who for legal reasons cunningly state that, "The following video was digitally created in Mexico on a closed course," is this incident and almost costly accident that occurred when a heavily modded Ford Mustang drag raced a 997-generation (that’s the previous one) Porsche 911 on a public highway.
It isn't clear if the Mustang lost control first and hit the rear wheel of the Porsche causing its tire to explode, or if the Ford's rubber gave in first leading to the loss of control, but either way, the two drivers should consider themselves lucky.
In the video description, TRC says, "Luckily no one was hurt in the digital creation of this video! Damage report: mustang needs a new skinny and porsche needs to re-paint a wheel!".Story References: Autoblog.nl
