The iconic test driver for Toyota began his career with the company as an accountant, but quickly displayed a knack for his expertise in building and developing cars.

In the past 47 years, Naruse inspired and had a hand in building almost every sports car built by Toyota, including his latest work of art, the Lexus LF-A.

Sadly, Naruse’s life was taken while driving the last masterpiece he helped build, the LF-A Nurburgring Edition, after a tragic car accident cost Toyota more than just its “NurMiester”.

The company lost a friend, a brother, a hero, and an icon.

As a sign of respect to honor the man many say is one of the best test drivers in history – he’s logged more hours than any Japanese driver at the Nurburgring – Lexus released a short video in tribute to Hiromu Naruse, the one and only master.

Mercedes SLS AMG GT3 Debut (Video)

The debut of the Mercedes SLS AMG GT3 didn’t live up to the expectation as it was involved in an avoidable accident on the Nürburgring at last weekends VLN.

Not only the video shows that Sabine Schmitz is a capable cook it also shows the unfortunate moment Bernd Scneider lost control of the GT3 SLS and span in to Christian Hohenadel’s Corvette, to the delight of the Frikadelli driver of their Porsche R.

This caused a bit of a jam of traffic so close to the start of the race sending the rest of the race traffic across the banking, causing Frank Stippler LMS Audi R8 to crash in to a further Corvette and hitting the SLS.

The pit’s was able too repair the damage in four rounds.

The race was eventually red flagged after 3 hours and 8 minutes because there were too many incidents on the VLN circuit.

Schneider’s SLS finished 91st we look forward to the next rounds to gauge how competitive the car is and hopefully be incident free.
