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

  • Juan Tafoya (Apr 7, 2019)

    Can you review a RUF CTR "Yellowbird" that is a legendary car as well.

  • Bastiaan - (Dec 5, 2018)

    You know you’re driving something special when someone takes pictures of your car out of a Lamborghini

  • Nathan Kelly (Apr 3, 2019)

    RBtoobsalot it looks like someone stepped on the beetle and squashed it down

  • RBtoobsalot (Mar 30, 2019)

    Still looks like a VW on steroids though...

  • 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.

  • Jay Monay (5 days ago)

    Richard Hanjeleer thank you never has anyone said lambo and than the model... it's obvious his argument lacks any validity

  • Jay Monay (5 days ago)

    rsr789 he's a joke

  • boxed fenders (Dec 7, 2018)

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

  • Cameron Vandygriff (Mar 22, 2019)

    +Alex Habr didnt Doug about that in an earlier episode XD

  • Cameron Vandygriff (Mar 22, 2019)

    I wondered that about a countach and testarossa i saw I figured the testarossa had more tho

  • 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.

  • Emil van de Bruck (2 days ago)

    no, as a matter of fact the motor can rust and it did, and to „kill it“ you just have to puch the door and your Hand will come out of the other side... It’s a shit car and it was Never good. You had to wait up to 14 years to get one and getting a drivers license was also very difficult. It’s a bad, slow, weird looking car that had no development at all and i would still love to own one.

  • no, as a matter of fact (Apr 17, 2019)

    +no2nate Your mother is a piece of shit car.For the times and for how poor we were beyond the papa stalin's curtain, it was amazing. Plus you literally can't kill it. Nor will it rust.

  • 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

  • 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

  • Terry Forth (Dec 9, 2018)

    One of the best cars of all time imo! I had never seen the suspension being raised before - so thanks for that. I was actually fortunate enough to see these being built in Zuffenhausen in the spring of 1986, when I was having a special guided tour at their facilities. It was a day to remember!

  • Crestfallen Plinth (Jan 1, 2019)

    Thats cool as hell

  • Jeebuz (Dec 10, 2018)

    Sure that first aid kit seems excessive until you realize that this car was designed for group B. All those bystanders😱

  • SamGamgee8012 (Apr 5, 2019)

    Just a regular, albeit expired German kit. Here you have to have one, know how to use it and are required by law to actually use it, if you come across anyone in need. Those bandages can be stacked up to apply pressure on an open gushing wound to stop the flow. There are never to many! First aid training is a requirement to get a driving license in Germany (and I personally think refreshing courses should be too ...)

  • Tipsy McStagger (Mar 12, 2019)

    Jeebuz that's a good point that I didn't even think about.

  • Robert Cummings London (Dec 11, 2018)

    FAR ahead of it's time!
