This video of a Porsche 918 Spyder racing an aircraft is in German.
We don’t speak much German, so we don't completely understand what's going on here … except for the fact, of course, that it’s a most righteous and noble endeavor.
The Spyder is a mind-melting speed machine, though we didn’t know it had the stones to take on the power of human flight. But German motor show Grip - Das Motormagazin apparently had some idle time on their hands, so they took it upon themselves to put it to the test. The race pits driver Matthias Malmedie and a 887 HP wagon against a Zivko Edge 540 V3 at the Zweibrucken airport.
Can the Porsche punch above its weight class? See for yourself. Note that the driver doesn’t even bother to wear a helmet.
Incorrigible, those Europeans.
