Description from R&T:
Forget about Baby Driver or whichever Fast and/or Furious installment we're currently on. This five-minute short film is the best automotive movie of 2017—in part because it co-stars Valentino Balboni.

Yes, the recently-retired chief test driver for Lamborghini is a film star, of sorts. In this film, Wolf of the Autostrada, he plays one of four dashing supercar drivers on a race through Europe. Who are the other stars? Stefan Roser, famous for drifting the original RUF CTR "Yellow Bird" around the Nurburgring, seen here driving that very same car; racing driver Mirko Venturi; driver turned writer and car consultant Sam Hancock; and Emanuele Collo, of boutique Swiss classic car procurer Kidston SA.

This is just the latest in a whole slew of car-centric films created by Kidston. Some are informative, while others, like this one, are pure entertainment. If you like 1980s supercars and Miami Vice-style driving sequences, you'll find a lot to like here.

That was awesome. Cars that required drivers to know them well enough to stay alive driving them like that. And the Cars, even better yet. GT legends, the real cars.

Awesome!, and here was the aforementioned drifting of the original RUF CTR "Yellow Bird" around the Nurburgring that Stefan Roser was famous for:

No roll cage, no helmet, no ABS or nannie systems, the guy is talented if a bit nuts, good to see the legend again.

That...was...AWESOME! thumbsup

To me the Countach will always be the ultimate supercar! Makes me want to watch The Cannonball Run.

Well the Countach is pretty awesome and I wanted one too but at that time Adrienne Barbeau and Tara Buckman were hotter.
Lol of course all three were unattainable.

For me, the McLaren F1 will always be the ultimate supercar. Usable, and with an amazing naturally-aspirated V12.

A close second is the Ferrari F40. IMO the ultimate boy's room poster car. And judging by Chris Harris in this video, still a complete riot to drive!



In all my years I've never seen the like. It has to be more than a hundred sea miles and he brings us up on his tail. That's seamanship, Mr. Pullings. My God, that's seamanship!

So fun. Those 80s, even the 70s super cars... Something there makes my inner evil alter ego want to throw money at them.

Remembering the aroma of white leather wafting out the open door of a Countach. The almost animal feel of the De Tomaso Pantera, when seated with one hand on the wheel, the other on the stick. And while some may not consider it in the same realm as other super cars, there is something unforgettable about gazing down at the expanse of the deceptively small Jaguar XK-E Coupe, standing beside the driver's door.
