Take a few million dollars and then proceed to attempt to throw it off a mountain at 100-plus-miles-per-hour, and then see how many people call you crazy. Do exactly that in a car worth a few million, and see how many people call you a hero (and mumble about your insanity under their breath).
Daniel Muller has decided to do the latter, and while we’re definitely mumbling, we’re also exclaiming his bravado—as well as the pure joy of seeing and hearing the car flat-out in this run from the 2012 Arosa Classic Car Rally, recently posted by Road & Track.
Sliding the tail, the nose, and sometimes both, flicking the car and dancing all three pedals while chucking the big, slow-ratio steering wheel around, Muller puts on a clinic of driving without any fear whatsoever—be that fear of the car, the course, or the potential repair bill.
