Nurburgring time?

Sat Sep 07, 2019 8:15 am

Is anybody aware of an EU Leaf owner getting any of the Leafs through a bridge-to-gantry time at the Nurburgring? Not sure anybody would be crazy enough to try with their own car, but I'd imagine soooomebody has to have given it a shot, considering some lunatic once did it in a Trabant...

There has been a few Norwegian Leaf-owners taking their cars on vacation to Germany this summer, but I don't recall any of them having a go on Nurburgring. One did test the top speed on Autobahn though.

Would be fun to build a Ring-racer of a Leaf. I have wondered if brake and suspension parts from a Renault Megane RSi would fit, as I believe the Leaf and the Megane are based on the same platform(?).
