    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.

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

    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...

  • 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..."

  • they use km\h in Germaby ))))

    +Boeing AH-64 Apache Helicopter its not made up, its German engeneering

  • 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.

  • Defstorm / dynoman200  (May 16, 2019)

    +PissAllOverMyAnusWhileMaintainingProperHomeostasis its trident nigga

  • Emil van de Bruck  (Apr 23, 2019)

    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.

    FAR ahead of it's time!

  • MinoritiesRlazy  (May 16, 2019)

    Robert Cummings London actually it’s not that far you poop head

  • 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!

  • CliffordTheEscort  (5 days ago)

    MinoritiesRlazy What?

  • MinoritiesRlazy  (May 16, 2019)

    Terry Forth it’s a shame you got Alzheimers though

  • 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😱

  • Kyle Goldston  (May 18, 2019)

    LOL...... Look at some of the old group B footage for the uninitiated. They were really asking for the Carnage that eventually cought up with them. I still wish the 959 and RS 2 had duked it out in group B though.

  • 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 ...)

  • Jason Patterson  (Dec 10, 2018)

    765 F40 owners gave the thumbs down.

  • jpdemer5  (Jan 11, 2019)

    That would be . . . all of them?

  • Indigoba  (Jan 6, 2019)

    Jason Patterson It's cool but the F40 is cooler even if it isn't as rare and useless besides on a racetrack.... I forgot what point I was trying to make 😂

  • Aaron Handford  (5 days ago)

    The front end styling has not aged well but the rear is gorgeous!

  • Joehua Elwood  (Dec 30, 2018)

    Group b wasn't just over it was banned because of to many deaths 600hp on gravel at night

  • Dale Emery  (Feb 14, 2019)

    Ya Gruppe B was death race 2000!

  • Logan Palmer  (Jan 27, 2019)

    I love how a lot of Group B teams just went "Fuck it. Let's take our cars and do rallycross instead."
