It’s been a rather serious week, hasn’t it? We had the reveal of the very serious Lamborghini Aventador SVJ. Porsche unveiled ‘Project Gold’, which took a year and a half of fastidious and serious work to build. Oh, and McLaren showcased that 600LT with a serious amount of carbonfibre attached.

We need Scumbag Labs, the same people responsible for another ‘experiment’ involving a rallycross car and hundreds of litres of washing up liquid, to conduct this highly important test.

Press play and enjoy the well-executed silliness.
