All the weird and unusual cars that lapped the Nürburgring in 2021 | Video

Sure, most people visit the Nürburgring to explore the limits of their sports car and their driving abilities, but doesn’t mean the only things allowed on the track are go-fast machines.

When there are no races happening, the famed circuit operates as a toll road, meaning that any and all cars, trucks and bikes are welcome to take a lap for a small fee–about $28 Monday-Thursday, or roughly $34 Friday-Sunday.

What sort of non-sports car would you take around the Nürburgring?

I wouldn't have imagined so much American iron running about.  That GMT900 regular cab short bed is a true unicorn, i don't think i've ever seen one.  And Brodozers are everywhere it seems.

I think this proves that driving anything on the ring is better than not driving the ring.

I'm kind of surprised at the amount of American steel running around there, but I'm really more surprised at the amount of vans and SUVs holy crap!!

Man, I love these videos. 

I watched this one yesterday after my kids were done with their exam - I put it up on the board and they were LOVING it. Then we watched one of their crash compilations. :) 

Im so thankful for my opportunity to drive this thing once in my life, but hopefully another opportunity arises in the future.

I'll be the first to admit that I enjoy those way more than I should.

That 1975 Buick Granville has to be iconic wherever it travels. Such stereotypical American excess.
