New Jersey was originally scheduled to stage Formula One's inaugural Grand Prix of America in June 2013, and Red Bull took its RB7 car over to the state of New York one year early to test drive the streets. Getty Images

Last-minutes checks were made before the RB7 sped through the Lincoln Tunnel, which connects Weehawken, New Jersey and Manhattan. Getty Images
While the Hudson River flowed above, Coulthard tore through the tunnel below at speeds of up to 190 miles per hour. Getty Images
