Exciting, and a quick, fun way to see the hybrid system in action.
Filmed at the international press launch of the new Toyota Yaris Hybrid in Amsterdamm, 28th-29th May 2012.
And please don't worry - the drivers were professionals, trained in taming beasts like the Yaris Hybrid. Do not attempt to drive the Yaris Hybrid in this manner, as you may do what they didn't do, and run out of talent.
"Fastest car in the world" vs Yacht - New Zealand Race - Top Gear - Series 20 - BBC
Jeremy and James head to New Zealand to take part in a race from the
Coromandel Peninsula to the northern tip of the North Island. James had to
cover 220 miles (350 km) in the America's Cup yacht Oracle, whilst Jeremy
had a much longer 410 miles (660 km). The Oracle's crew was made up of
James, Olympic gold medallist Sir Ben Ainslie and several America's Cup
winners. Jeremy's Auris is a rental, thus "the fastest car in the world",
and he has little regard for its safety... Taken from Episode 1, Series 20.
