A car leaves a trail of flames in its wake as it sped down a highway like Doc’s DeLorean from Back To The Future.

As the owner of Instagram page @shanghaiobserved went out of Shanghai, China, they were in the outside lane of a motorway.

Travelling in the middle lane, a silver van’s tyres suddenly burst into flames leaving a trail of inferno after it.

He said: “They weren’t even going that fast, maybe just more than 70mph.

“I could barely see after the car lit up, I just stayed in my lane and stayed straight.

“I was so scared the car could swerve in front of me.

“I just needed to look out for my safety and get in front of it.”
