Construction of the famed Nurburgring race track begins on Sept. 27, 1925.
Located in Nurburg, Germany, the track cost 8.1 million reichsmarks to build at the time, according to the track's website.
Around 3,000 workers were involved in the construction process of the track. It opened on June 18, 1927.
Today, Nurburgring is composed of two tracks, Nordschleife and the Grand Prix track, which opened in 1984.
Nordschleife, the more famous of the two, has become arguably the most notorious track in the world, with a demanding total of 73 corners and a 984-foot difference in elevation.
Because of its unique setup, it has become a de facto proving ground for automakers, especially for high-performance and race-spec models.
Lap times are often used as bragging rights, too.
Additionally, it has increasingly become a prime location to spot camouflaged test vehicles as automakers put mules through their paces.
Nurburgring was given the nickname of "The Green Hell" early on in its existence and that name has stuck throughout the years, even as vehicles become more advanced and powerful.
