An old GP2 racecar has been filmed flying along a Czech highway, with a couple of high-end supercars in tow.

The footage – which resembled a sequel to Driven – went viral across social media this weekend. However, instead of Sylvester Stallone being the one behind the wheel (as far as we know!), the driver of this deviant Dallara GP2/08 remains a mystery.

Naturally, it’s very illegal to take a GP2 car onto a public road, so Czech authorities are now wrapped up in a bizarre manhunt to identify whoever was behind the helmet and overalls.

The sight of a thoroughbred racecar darting past everyday commuter traffic is enough of a spectacle by itself, but a further layer of intrigue is added by the presence of a Lamborghini Aventador SVJ and Bugatti Chiron, which appear to be in convoy with the open-wheeler.

You may have noticed that this mischievous racer is sporting a Ferrari livery, which initially caused some confusion in various comments sections. But don’t be fooled, this is no F1 car.

Regardless of its motorsport credentials though, the Dallara GP2/08 is still an epic machine.

Introduced in the late noughties for the GP2 championship (the F1 feeder series now known as F2), this Dallara has a spec sheet that would make 99% of road cars weep. The engine singing that glorious harmony is a Mechachrome-Renault V8, which sends around 620bhp to the rear wheels, and redlines at 8500rpm. Mechachrome was also in charge of the transmission, which is a six-speed semi-automatic system. This combination, placed within a vehicle that weighs just 688kg, creates levels of performance which are as otherworldly as the car’s image suggests.

So, what happens now? Well, that all depends on whether the Czech police force can successfully connect the dots. It’s fair to say though that if this elusive driver is identified, they’re likely to get a bit more than just a slap on the wrist.
