Old Maxima against a Porsche Turbo
Nissan Vs. Porsche
The Mexican clearly has an adrenalin rush as he's getting ready for the race. He warms up the tires for better traction and drives up to a Porsche 911 Turbo. To race against it. No, wait, stop laughing!
The video of Mr Chavez beating his rival at a race track in Chihuahua was first released over a year ago but has once again gone viral in the past few days. People just love it.
