World's Fastest Coaster

So S&S Power is currently building the world's fastest coaster, named Ring Racer, at the Nurburgring in Germany. Not an amusement park, the Nurburgring is a famous race track, and the coaster is part of a new development that will include other entertainment as well as attractions.

Not much was known about the ride as far as layout goes, just that it should hit 135 mph making it the world's fastest. Now we can have an idea of the layout of the ride thanks to a new video that S&S has placed on their website.

At first I thought this would basically be a launch and brakes, but now from the video we can tell that the ride will have some height and more elements to it. Not that the launch won't be enough, but now the ride is even more interesting.
