Watch: The terrifying moment a Viper bursts into flames mid-race
Fiery car wrecks seem to be becoming all too familiar sight on today’s drag strips. The world is moving forwards driving faster and faster each day, leaving behind it a trail of fallen competitors; the latest being ‘The White Snake’ a gorgeous pealy white Viper.
The American sports car lines up a blesses the camera with a few revs before shooting off the line. It looks as though the Viper got to about mid way before a huge amount of fluid pours out from behind and the car quickly is engulfed in flames. as this happens the driver looses control and the car slams into the wall before spinning across to the other side of the strip.
As the car comes to rest the driver hops out and limps away from the car.
