One thing I left out of my talk with racing legend and 1970 LeMans winner Hans Herrmann was that I convinced him to try a quick lap on Forza. Because, you know, all octogenarians love video games.
One of Porsche's entries for the 1971 24 Hours of Le Mans was a racing pig. Developed with French help in a quest for harmony between downforce and drag, it was the fastest thing on track. Until dawn on Sunday.
Let's cut to the chase: This is a 563-hp Mercedes-Benz SLS AMG, those are its amazing doors, and I took this picture in Mexico while hanging out of the car at 50 mph. Safety is for pansies. Viva velocidad!
