A lap time at the Nurburgring has become as omnipresent a spec as horsepower for any new, or even updated, sports car on the market. And what’s included every single time? A video of the lap. As impressive as it is, “the lap” is a ordinary formula. Plop your driver in the car, mount a camera on the rear windshield and let ‘em rip. All the laps see the same -- number tank slappers, panicked braking or even shifting. Just slice and paste, driver turns left, turns right, goes straight.

Don’t obtain us wrong. It’s kind of the manufacturers to share videos, but all the drama is gone -- which is why watching this video is so refreshing. It’s a one thousand nine hundred sixty-eight Ford Mustang with Trans Am Homologation specs giving the Green Hell some hell. By today’s standards, this Mustang is slow, but the video is most definitely not.

The driver is working. Large inputs in the non-power-assisted steering are required to create the tight corners. It’s a four-on-the-floor manual transmission with shoulder stretching long throws. The car is unsophisticated and sloppy, and the Nordschleife requires huge precision. Muscling this pony car around here is love performing surgery with a chainsaw successfully. It’s brilliant!

And just because we’re in the mood, here is maybe the most well-known of laps around Germany’s most well-known of road courses: Hans Stuck slicing his way through traffic in an M3 GTR race car.
