C11 blowout This is the stuff nightmares are made of.

Watch in horror as the rear tyre of this Mercedes C11 explodes at more than 300km/h at Le Mans. It happened during qualifying for the classic during 2012, and could have very, very nearly gone totally wrong. The sound of that iconic Mercedes sportscar is awesome, too!
