Video: Blindfolded racing driver in the new Volvo S60

Updated: 


You have to be fairly bonkers to be a top-flight racing driver, but to drive around a track blindfolded? Certifiable. But that's exactly what New Zealand driver Jonny Reid has done at the Hampton Downs racetrack in the new Volvo S60.

We couldn't recommend trying this at home – well, not unless you've got a car company sponsoring your effort – but it does make for great action as the S60 reaches speeds of 120mph. Reid throws the car into corners guided only by his co-driver's calm directions and a keen sense of smell. Click below to watch the video.
