Augusto Farfus isn't even 30 years old yet, but he already has a certain commanding precision on many of the world's greatest racetracks, including Germany's famed Nürburgring. In the latest installment of the "Scare Your Wife At The Track" internet video meme, the BMW DTM driver takes his wife, Liri, for a high-speed tour of the Nürburgring in a BMW M3 Coupe.

When Liri agreed to hop in the passenger seat for a hot lap with her husband, we have a feeling the two had different meanings of "slow" and "exciting" driving. While most of us would have a hard enough time just staying on the challenging track, Farfus tackles the Green Hell while explaining elements of the track and dealing with his wife screaming in fear for most of the nearly 10-minute video. At one point (around the 5:02 mark) it looks as if Mrs. Farfus even starts to pass out a little just before saying that she's going to be sick, but she still handles the ordeal better than the respective wives of Riccardo Patrese and João Barbosa, the reigning queens of the Scare Your Wife meme.

Farfus, who we learn early in the video has a nickname of "Ninho" from his wife, is having fun the entire video commenting on a classic Mercedes-Benz as they blow past it, an Audi driver who Farfus comments "probably thinks he knows the track" as they pass it in a turn and numerous other cars and motorcycles.

Check out the video below to see whether or not Ninho will end up in the dog house for his antics.

      With that voice I kept thinking she was going to start moaning and yelling "Aye, Papi!!!" And yeah, that scarf didn't seem to go with the rest of her outfit. (god that sounds gay)

      http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=bpo8RDyOEWY As someone mentioned earlier this video with Riccardo Patrese and his wife is better and funnier. (This link has the video with english subtitles that makes it even more funny...)

      If those screams are any indicator, she's probably a demon in the sack!

      He is an idiot for scaring her, and she is an idiot for trusting him. She should dump him.

        Knowing he (her too probably) was being taped, he really wanted show off a little but going (270 kph) that's 160 mph with his wife on board, he's got to be a total idiot for sure.

      Somebody should show Augusto Farfus what fear is all about, I can only say that if he really loves his wife he shouldn't have put her throught what he did. Fear is probably one of the worst things a person can experience. There is nothing funny about true fear, if you don't beleive me experience it sometime.

        Did you watch the video? It seemed pretty much entirely voluntary on her conscious part. He wasn't overdoing it and constantly reassured her he wasn't driving at 10/10ths. She wasn't anywhere close to screaming bloody murder, and she high-fived him at the end.
