This footage from the Nürburgring Nordschleife shows an Audi A3 sedan driver lose control of the vehicle and come perilously close to crashing.

The video shows the action from both inside and outside the German saloon.

The rented A3 goes sideways mid-corner, before sliding onto the grass and kicking up plenty of dust and dirt. Thankfully for the driver and passenger, the vehicle didn't clatter into the barrier.
