Behold The Greatest Car Selfie Of All Time (Update: Just Kidding)

Drop the phone right now. Flip that camera back to its external-facing view. No selfie will ever top this one of racing drivers Tom O’Gorman and Shea Holbrook from Sebring Raceway.

Here we see a Mazda Miata race car in its natural habitat: crashing in spectacular fashion. This perfectly timed snapshot shows Mazda’s iconic, frequently wrecked roadster mid-barrel roll as another car is up on two wheels in the background.

We’ve finally achieved Maximum Selfie. Rip out those forward-facing cameras and sell them on the Internet for race car funds, everyone. Shut it down.


Update: As several of you noted, we fell for the photoshop. I should have known that car looked too cleanly flipped! Either way, we still recommend ripping out the selfie cameras unless you plan on capturing dinosaurs eating Miatas behind you. Any lesser selfie is unworthy.

Spiked hair and throwback raybans plus a fucking ridiculous duckface. This, America, is our future.

We’re fucked.
