A good video you watch once, a great video you watch twice, a viral video you make everyone you know watch. Welcome to the most viral car vids ever made.


Putting together a list of the most viral car videos is not easy. You can go the easy way and use the ones with naked ladies. You could also just type in "car" into Youtube, sort by view count and end up with a video that's certainly viral but not interesting at all. You can also take a look at the best car gifs out there for inspiration, but I believe these ten nominees are better:

10.) Faszination on the Nürburgring

Total views: Unknown

This comes from the age of endlessly copied video cassettes, so it's hard to say how viral it is. That only makes it more special.

If not this, you've seen another one with drunk/stupid people destroying cars and each other, haven't you?
