A test drive of the Porsche 911 GT3 has recently went awfully wrong after its driver lost control of the wheel and crashed it, right in front of the camera.
The Porsche 911 GT3 had its fair share of problems these past few months but with these being put aside, the sports car is still being as popular as ever. And with like every other popular but expensive and powerful vehicle out there, it’s not long until what is believed to be the first recorded accident caught on a video camera makes its way onto the web.
The clip posted below is posted by YouTube user Craig Schelin, who is following this Porsche 911 GT3, on a run of the mill test drive. The driver of the German sports car tried to pull off a heavy launch at a traffic light but the result was not what he intended and the only thing coming out of this test drive will be a big servicing bill.
The Porsche 911 GT3 is taking its power from a 3.8 liter six-cylinder boxer engine, which is producing 475 HP (349 kW) and 438 Nm (324 lb-ft) of torque. The unit is mated to a seven-speed dual clutch transmission and the 0 to 100 km/h sprint takes 3.5 seconds. Top speed stands at 315 km/h (195 mph) in this rear-wheel drive sports car.
