The Nürburgring has gone by many names over the years, but none are as accurate as “The Green Hell”. This legendary track has a reputation for being brutal and unforgiving, it is the very track that scared Niki Lauda forever, and the same track that allowed Ayrton Senna to show the world his talent. Everyone from BMW, Honda, Mercedes-Benz, Toyota, Ford, Hyundai, Lamborghini, Ferrari, and the list goes on and on … they all test at the Nurburgring to see who takes home the title of the fastest car around “The Ring.” The track also attracts thousands of enthusiasts every year, all looking to test their abilities behind the wheel, yet this has resulted in millions of crash videos. The Nurburgring even offers its guests the chance to sit in the passenger seat of proper race cars piloted by seasoned drivers in order to experience the track at its finest. So what exactly is it that the Nurburgring has that it draws OEM manufacturers, custom builders, and speed freaks from all over the world? Ohh yeah and did we mention that this “track” is also a toll road? This is everything you need to get up to speed on the world’s fastest and craziest toll road/race track!
Huge shoutout to TheDriveGuyde for sending us some sweet footage of the Hyundai Veloster N.

Not sure if it was your accent, or you were doing a bit (like hearse purrs), but to pronounce aluminium (with an i), it's: alum-in-YUM

As soon as he started talking about the car co.s setting up shop there, I immediately thought of jm's hatred of this hellish land (cause tbh I agree with him... on the normal cars being developed there! Not the track, still love that)

Thank you for mentioning the Hyundai Veloster N, the greatest little car ever built. But I just wanted to point out that THAT'S what the N stands for: NURBURGRING!!!!

Man the only reason i got to learn about this track was through the Veloster N, i first fell in love with the 2025 N concept back in 2015 and that brought me to the N in 2018 in the detroit auto show. The moment i got to sit in the veloster and shift through all 6 gears, man, 2 years later and its still in my dreams. Now i feel like I've been missing on something huge ever since i learned about this ring

Went there once with my S2K and REALLY bad tires... it was raining. Suffice to say, I shat my pants a few times and I did NOT make any record time. I am a pretty good driver but when you look at all the paint scientifically placed to make you fly off the track... you HAVE TO choose either all season super-stickies OR a sunny day.
