Who’s the hottest woman on the planet? Is it Marisa Miller? Megan Fox? Angelina Jolie? Halle Berry? Scarlett Johansson? Not in my book. In fact, I’d call the Sabine Schmitz, a German taxi cab driver with girl-next-door looks and a decidedly average body, the hottest woman on the planet. Why? Because she’d kick your ass driving the Nürburgring, that’s why. Need another reason? She stole her mom’s car for her first lap of the ‘Ring at age 17. If that doesn’t give you wood, you’re not really a gear head.
Sabine Schmitz is BMW’s best known “Ring Taxi” driver, and she gets paid to scare tourists half to death behind the wheel of a BMW M5. She’s racked up more than 20,000 laps of the Nordschleife, and probably knows the track better than anyone else on the planet. Driving for BMW, she’s accumulated some 45 race wins on the Nordschleife , including two victories in the 24 Hours of Nürburgring. You’ve seen her on Top Gear, where she once told Jeremy Clarkson she could lap faster in a Ford Transit van than he did in a Jaguar sedan, and came within seconds of backing up that claim.
Sure Megan Fox or Scarlett Johansson may look better naked, but how fast could either one lap the Nordschieife? Not fast enough to keep me interested for long, since you can’t be naked and sweaty all of the time.
