of course it's fake, what tipped you off? No ramp to keep the car from colliding into the wall. Schuey bring seen at the end, and them not wanting to risk one of the greatest drivers (if not the greatest) of all time life?

I think there is a vid of that. Theorectically (sp?) F1 cars make so much downforce that it has been said you could drive it upside down and it would stick to the roof of a tunnel. Supposedly the Ferrari F50 road car as well.

they should do it in a tunnel or someone witha  pretty low "roof" so the eprson wouldn't die if something went wrong, with with the amazign "cages" in f1 cars they should be fine anyway, someone should do it lol.

problem is how you're supposed to "turn" the car up side down without the tunnel having to be insanly long

In order to turn it, you'd have to have a ramp leading to the ceiling of the tunnel. It has to be at a angle, like you unraveling a toilet tissue or paper towel tube. That way the car doesn't go crashing into the wall.

It's completely possible to drive a car upside if you are going fast enough and if the car has the right aerodynamic properties (at least on Earth.  Not on the moon.)  It's Bernoulli's principle.  The same concept that allows an airplane to generate lift can be used to keep a car on the ground.  If you have a big air scoop, the fluid (air in this case) rushing over the scoop causes a force downward that helps keep the car on the ground.  If this force exceeds the net force in the opposite direction (weight of the car plus lift in the case of driving upside down), then you will have no problem driving upside down.

There's obviously a ramp at the beginning and end of the tunnel if you look closely.

It's still very fake though.

Has anyone ever seen the motorcycles run around in a huge barrel at the amusement parks? Same principle.

No.  It's definitely not the same principle.

Thats like slinging a bucket of water around and the water not falling out...

What he was talking about is the downforce..F1 cars and other race and road cars (like the Ferrari F50) used a inverted wing to generate downforce. Couple that with a flat bottom and a rear diffuser you have suction...pushing the rear down for more traction. Some like the Mclaren F1 even have fans to aid in his as well. Unfortunately the high downforce takes away from top speed.

I think the bucket explanation is called centrifugal force.

Jesus, am I the only one that doesn't car whether it's fake or not, and just think that's a sick car?
Older styling with the gull-wing like doors, but I think it looks pretty disgustingly cool. Cool

You guys are all forgetting something, hasn't anybody realized that it's impossible to drive a car upside down for more then a second or two, the engine doesn't work the same way upside down, ie. the fuel coming from the gas tank getting pumped into it, gravity plays a large role in how an engine functions. After a few seconds the engine would most likely stall out

The curvature of spacetime could mean what you perceive as the inside of the tunnel is actually the outside of the tunnel.
