A man is test-driving a Ferrari on a two-lane highway. Everything is going smoothly as he gathers speed to assess performance of the luxury sports car. Suddenly he encounters a car in front of him and he's moving so fast that he has no choice but to change lanes and pass it. But another car is coming directly at him in the other lane. The video below shows how he responds to the challenge and why the guy in the passenger seat's reaction is cracking people up.

Posted by @cars_nationtv, this video sets up the discussion about what happens, how the driver reacts, and the passenger's hilariously serene attitude during the split-second scene.
"He almost crashed," writes commenter @pedro9nine. "And the co-pilot be like 'thumbs-up!'"
"I'll give it to him," compliments @sebastiancoetzee. "He knows how to drive, though."
"Bravissimo!" exclaims @tekniklee.
Video viewer @stephencameron185 has a question of his own. "How did he get himself in that situation in the first place?" he asks. "It's a straight road."
"Well, thank god for brown leather," jokes @oldman7645.
User @1957fordskyliner offers this comment: "That guy was such a good sport in the passenger seat."
"After watching this video, thanks go to Ferrari for its excellent stabilization," remarks @axel_.castro. Yes, we noticed that as well.
"They almost died, but he liked it!" notes @peeree33.
"Hope the garage gave him a gold star discount if he purchased it," says @alfredgtv.
Reader @kingcraine504 thinks he knows how it went from here. "He went back to the dealership and said, 'I'll take it!'" he writes.
We post videos such as these as part of our coverage because we hope there are specific behaviors drivers can learn and implement to help make our roads safer for all of us.
