Acceleration is generally a good thing, right? Not when your spoiler isn’t effective enough to actually keep you pinned to the ground.
The driver of this Lexus ISF Twin Turbo absolutely smoked his rival off the line during a drag race.
But the updraft from the headwind it created was too much for the Lexus at such rapid speeds that seconds later it actually lifted entirely off the ground and smashed over the safety barrier on the left.
Incredibly, the driver walked away from the horrific crash – at the fourth round of the Bahrain Drag Race Championship – without a scratch. How he managed that is a miracle.
But it just goes to show that sometimes you really can be too fast.
