Watch: Scirocco Flips Three Times After Losing it at Nurburgring

For many of us, getting a car onto the Nurburgring for its public lapping days is a dream, but for some it turns quickly into a nightmare.

This Scirocco looks to have been having a pretty good day until it came out of a corner a little hot and ran headlong into the barriers at the next corner.

The result is a pretty spectacular crash. Understeering past the tires, the Scirocco slams into the barrier and flips three times before coming to a rest on its roof.

Fortunately, the driver was able to get out of the car under her own strength, but given the force of the accident, we’re pretty convinced she’ll be uncomfortable in the morning.

Still, the Scirocco fares well in the accident, with the passenger cell largely retaining its shape despite the heavy shunt. It’s a testament to modern safety standards, though the accident also proves that a lap day can still be a pretty dangerous business.
