Kim Dotcom makes Nurburgring film with Kimi Raikkonen and three CLK DTMs [video]

Founder of shut down internet firm MegaUpload.com, Kim Dotcom (aka Kim Schmitz), has recently uploaded to YouTube a film he commissioned prior to being arrested and his personal assets confiscated by the New Zealand authorities pending copyright infringement proceedings.

The film shot at the Nürburgring Nordschleife features himself, former F1 world champion and Lotus driver Kimi Räikkönen, and business partner Finn Batato in three Mercedes Benz AMG CLK DTM cars all owned by Dotcom to explore a full lap around the famous Nürburgring circuit.

The production involved 30 cameras, 100+ crew, 2 helicopters, 2 camera cars and one fixed wing aircraft plus 20 laps to capture the necessary footage.

"It's a homage to the Nürburgring, the CLK DTM and Kimi Räikkönen, one of the best drivers in the world," Dotcom states. "I used to play Forza and Need for Speed on Xbox Live. Those games inspired me to create a video that looks like the replay of a perfect lap on the 'Ring. I know it isn't perfect, but I tried," Dotcom explains further.

"I DID NOT WIN against Kimi. I never could. We had to remove the air from his tires to keep up. And even then it was impossible."

Dotcom adds that the final edit of the film was seized by the FBI during the MegaUpload raid and hopefully he will upload it as soon as it is returned to him, if ever.

7:59 min. Lap is a very good result considering Raikkonen was pacing himself for the others to keep up plus the cameras, I wonder with none of those what would the time be, this really is a beast of a car. Note CLK DTM is one car CLK Black is another, many dont know they are diferent cars

Am I the only one who thinks that the commentary is a direct lift from the Nurburgring film done by Clarkson with the S-Type Diesel? No wonder this guy was charged with copyright infringement!!

Mister Dotcom's assets were seized by the NZ Police acting on behalf of the US FBI. The Feds wanted to extradite him to the US but it seems that the case against him is striking legal difficulties.
