Dutch driver drowns Nissan GT-R

Remember the scene in "The Empire Strikes Back" where Yoda raises Luke Skywalker's X-Wing from the swamp? This Nissan GT-R owner staged a real-life reenactment in the Netherlands, after a misunderstanding with The Force.

While the GT-R has as much control technology as any sports car on the planet, there's only so much bad driving it can correct. Dutch reports say the driver simply missed a curve near the Assen car festival before bumping a bridge and plunging into the ditch. Somewhere in the Netherlands, there's a broker toying with the phrase we English speakers know as "mechanics' special."

Hat tip to Michel!

Why is it RHD in Holland? It doesn't look like it fared too badly from its swim, maybe someone can rip the interior out, swap the engine, and turn it into a track car.
