Video: Absurd high speed hillclimb – Norma M20. The car in this video may be modern, but the bravery required to pilot it up this hillclimb is from a different era.

The car is a Norma M20 campaigned by French Team Castellana Racing. Unsurprisingly the team has won the French hillclimb championship with this 600kg, 400hp, BMW engined beast.

Just watch as this thing slices its way across the mountain road, accelerating like lightning and braking at the very last moment.
