    Have a good day at school, sweetie! Don't lose your 959 first aid kit!

  • Philip Brechler (6 days ago)

    Fun fact: That is a German first aid kit. Being German it is of course standardised and there is of course a law specifying what needs to be in there. So every German car has this insane amount of bandages in it.

    Doug DeMuro could you please review a Singer Porsche?

  • Don Vito 2.0 (Dec 4, 2018)

    *Doug the type of guy to buy water at the store then set it free into the ocean.*

  • Greg Wallace (Feb 10, 2019)

    Yo Vito how's it hanging?

  • Champagne davy (Jan 11, 2019)

    +LOTP CYRUS he just uploaded it ironically lol

  • rsr789 (Dec 7, 2018)

    When guys in a Lambo roadster are taking vids of the car you're driving, you know you're in a special car.

  • Dale Emery (2 days ago)

    Lots of people (I mean LOTS) still say "Porsh". ugh.

  • Dreznin (Jan 12, 2019)

    +Richard Hanjeleer Exactly - it's short-hand and it's immediately known what is being referred to, nothing childish about it. For my personal parlance, if I'm talking about a specific model, I state "Lamborghini ________", but I'll use the short-hand "Lambo" when speaking in a generalized nature.

  • SmartChannel (Dec 11, 2018)

    Air pressure gauge, adjustable suspension, 198MPH, vented disk brakes, and on the other side of the wall, they had the Trebant.

  • +Richard Hanjeleer HA HA HA HA HA HA AA GOT YA!!! IT'S TRABANT HAHAHAH

  • Richard Hanjeleer (Jan 10, 2019)

    +PissAllOverMyAnusWhileMaintainingProperHomeostasis That's what i said, trubant.

  • ricky v (Dec 10, 2018)

    I remember dreaming about this car a long time ago. Now, I am glad I didn't realize all of it's potentials till now. Absolutely amazing car. Especially, all that tech that is has. Adjustable height, 6 speed gear box(kind of), AWD, plus many more. Since, it's almost the end of 2018. Could you do a favorites of 2018 video?

  • ricky v (Dec 23, 2018)

    tfs2O3 Yup! I got to ride in an older Diablo once. It sucked! I never wanted to get in a sport car after that. Till now. (:

  • tfs2O3 (Dec 23, 2018)

    +ricky v I have to agree. Especially the later models that had alot of the kinks worked out. Like the Diablo SV and the 6.0s.

  • KlausM54 (Dec 13, 2018)

    I´ve read an anecdote in a German car magazine, that during the development of the 959 chief R/D engineer Helmut Bott returned from a test drive and said to his staff: "At 125 mph the car feels a bit squirmy..." The engineers were shocked before he added: "...on gravel..."

  • KlausM54 (Jan 15, 2019)

    As I said, doesn´t go beyond anecdotal evidence, but a least the story originated from a respectable car magazine before the internet. Could still be made up, of course.

  • Combustion69 (Jan 15, 2019)

    fake story

  • Mark Malinowski (Dec 4, 2018)

    You can predict the dougscore by the pitch of the opening THISSS

  • Injo (Feb 10, 2019)

    When he gets to review a LaFerrari he'll go into dog whistle mode

  • Bassem B. (Dec 7, 2018)

    Haha! So true!

  • boxed fenders (Dec 7, 2018)

    I wonder how much cocaine dust is still on the dashboard...

  • Bang UrHead (Jan 22, 2019)

    I WANNA SMOKE WHAT DOUG SMOKES..❗😂❗💭💫💥 "and with that this car went out with the ether"..??!!.wtf Hahaha..fuckin' priceless. Nice downplay on how eager he was to drive that bad boy, huh..!!

  • Alex Habr (Dec 16, 2018)

    The Countach even had a removable courtesy mirror especially for this purpose!

  • TheJomeister (Dec 7, 2018)

    G = Gelände! GELÄNDE

  • ö. . , (Feb 1, 2019)

    I was wondering what he ment with "Galant" meaning off road...Gelände. Natürlich...

  • TheMendul (Jan 10, 2019)

    +Richard Hanjeleer Already did. Be prepared!

  • barry0gee (Dec 13, 2018)

    doug review a McLaren F1 . The owners manual shows you how to gracefully enter the car.

  • Pillokun (Jan 22, 2019)

    F1 definatly need an Doug Demuro review. I remember when I first saw in it nfs2. I simply dropped my jaw to the floor. Even though some details on the F1 seems dated not the lines are still the most iconic and beautiful and purposeful ever. Doug can always ask Jay Leno, would be fun if he was in the review as well.

  • Mike A (Jan 5, 2019)

    Gotta find an F1 owner willing to let him touch it and drive it. Maybe Leno but I doubt he'll be allowed to drive it.
