Video: 2011 Volvo S60 flogged around track by... blindfolded Kiwi racer?!

Jonny Reid drives the Volvo S60... blindfolded – Click above to watch the video after the break

We don't exactly know why this video was filmed, other than the fact that it's somehow supposed to make us more interested in the Volvo S60, but we don't really care – just because it's cool is reason enough for us.

In any case, well-known Kiwi racer Jonny Reid, who is currently competing in the Porsche GT3 Cup Challenge, belted himself into the driver's seat of a brand new 2011 Volvo S60 sedan at the starting line at Hampton Downs Motorsports Park in New Zealand.

No big deal, right? Not until you consider the fact that Reid was blindfolded and going all out based solely on his knowledge of the track and the instructions from his co-driver, Earl Bamber. We can't really say how it compares to any other times, but he ended up lapping the track in one minute and 28 seconds.

Now, it should be noted that Reid knows Hampton Downs very well. In fact, he's a track instructor during driver training and corporate events. Still, the video is pretty darn cool, and in the end, that's all we really care about, right? See for yourself after the break.
