The previous record holder towed just -- "just" -- 170 metric tons (about 375,000 pounds), while this plane weighs about 285. Hot damn.

You probably shouldn't try this at home, especially if you don't own the Airbus A380 in question.

The Porsche towed it using only a special attachment to connect the plane to its standard tow bar.
