Avid fans of the British motoring show “Top Gear” may recall that in Episode 1 of season 14, back in November of 2009, the three presenters took a road trip to find the best driving road in the world. At the end of their journey, they claimed that the Transfagarasan highway in Romania took the title away from the Stelvio pass in Italy.
Evo Magazine’s Henry Catchpole thinks Top Gear came close, but picked the wrong road.
Armed with a convertible Jaguar F-Type S and a heavy right foot, Henry drove on to find a road not only comparable to the Nurburgring, but one that blows the Transfagarasan out of the water. Check out the video above, posted to YouTube Feb. 3 by EvoTV, to see the whole picturesque journey from Mr. Catchpole’s point of view.
