    Behind the wheel was two-time Le Mans winner and reigning World Endurance Champion Timo Bernhard.

    That’s freakin nuts. It looks like the video has been sped up.

    If you have enough aero, you don't have to worry about becoming airborne over some of the 'ring's famous jumps.

    Einstein's special theory of relativity referred to this effect as time dilation. According to the theory of relativity, time dilation is a difference in the elapsed time measured by two observers, either due to a velocity difference relative to each other, or by being differently situated relative to a gravitational field.

    Or the camera could just be close to the track. Hard to say.

    I think it's the car that's been sped up - the video's just along for the ride.

    I'm kinda disappointed it "only" reached 370kph on the back straight. I was hoping it would reach 400kph.

    Now I want to see what an unrestricted Formula 1 can do.

    370 KPH = 230 MPH!!! on a race track even. How many other tracks can you go this speed?
