With 0-60 times and horsepower figures all falling into ludicrous territory, carmakers went looking for a new mark of performance. They chose Nürburgring lap times. And that's why you've seen someone blast the Döttinger Höhe at least a thousand times.
Every car from Rolls Royces to Ferraris to Vauxhalls go testing at the 'Ring, and they all release videos to prove their exploits happened. I'm particularly fond of the new Alfa 4C lap because, hey, I love Alfa Romeos.
What do you think is the best 'Ring lap ever recorded and released on video?
