The latest Red Bull stunt, though, is impressive not just for its insanity, but also for its results.

Watch a 1,000 hp Toyota Celica lose a wheel during drag race

By Deeq on 30 Apr 2016 in Motorsports

There's a 1975 Toyota Celica. Toyota's legendary 2JZ engine provides around 1,000 horsepower, which we'd classify as "a whole hell of a lot." It sounds and goes very nicely, making multiple runs during the TX2K16, a drag and roll-racing event in Texas. It faces off against a tough-looking GT-R, before making short work of an Audi R8. Then, it beats out a nice Chevrolet Camaro SS, rocking out a 10.21-second quarter-mile run on a lousy start. And then the wheels come off. Literally.

On the run down to Turn 3 at Albert Park, Alonso tried to move his car to the left-hand side of the track in a bid to get the outside line for the corner.

Gutierrez shifted his car slightly left and appeared to brake earlier than Alonso expected, causing the Spaniard to run over the back of the Haas driver.
