Video: Super-fast Bromance - Dr. Ulrich Benz and Akio Toyoda Race the 'Ring

Nurburgring / 7 Comments

Dr. Ulrich Benz and Akio Toyoda show off their supercars and racing skills with a day at the Nurburgring.

Akio Toyoda and Dr. Ulrich Benz, CEOs of Toyota and Aston Martin, respectively, have met on the Nurburgring racetrack for a few hot laps in each other's supercars. Benz takes the Lexus LFA while Toyoda rides in the Aston Martin V12 Zagato. What's fascinating is that both drivers are highly-skilled and adept in their respective racers, hitting some pretty fast speeds. In the end, Toyoda crashes his Zagato but after a quick fix, gets back on the road and finishes up the fairly-routine-for-a-boss day at the office.

Both men are good friends and as the video states, these men meet on the track versus the boardroom. Someplace, somewhere, Matt Damon and Ben Affleck are jealously trading the roles of Jason Bourne and the Daredevil.
