In this week’s Carhoots top ‘viral’ car videos; Chris Harris buys some bread, The Stig takes on a ninja, Ron Burgundy beats a horse in a staring contest, Swedes do street racing, and a toy car does 205mph.
Chris Harris buys some bread
We’re back in the 1990s, Chris Harris is in France and he needs bread. Solution? Don the appropriate Miami Vice-style suit, fire up the Ferrari 512R, detour across the stunning Route Napoleon, and give the car a damn good thrashing. And retrieve the bread, obviously.
Audi RS 6 Avant : Paint Battle
Former Stig, Ben Collins, takes on a ninja man from behind the wheel of an Audi RS6 Avant in a sort of paint battle, game, thing. Whatever, he drifts the big RS6 wagon like a complete boss.
Yamaha R1 vs Mercedes SL63 AMG
In a quiet, sleepy village somewhere in Sweden the hills are well and truly alive with the sound of petrol being exploded. In this video a Yamaha superbike chases a Mercedes SL63 AMG on the street at over 185mph! The bike is speed limited to a measly 185mph, but the AMG keeps on going up to more than 200mph! Madness.

Tether car does 205mph
Tether cars are essentially really, really small packages of vehicular insanity. They’re generally 30-60cm long, and 8cm wide. They’ve got tiny little engines, gearboxes and differentials like normal cars and they drive around a circular bowl (like in Nascar) while attached to a central pole with some string. This, um, rather alarmingly, allows them to do over 200mph and pull 91g. NINTY ONE G.
