There are many great GTs we'd choose for a romp across the Alps. And Ferrari has made many of them. But while we're not sure the hard-core, no-frills F40 would be our top choice for a transalpine journey, we certainly wouldn't turn down the opportunity.

Neither, it seems, could the guys at Evo. So when the British magazine's "secret supercar owner" – who keeps the editorial team stocked with exotic machinery – needed to get his F40 back across the mountains, he handed the keys over to Henry Catchpole, who was good enough to record and recount the experience in this latest behind-the-scenes video.

Needless to say it was a memorable experience, and one worth sharing.

      Not much to see here. Some great pictures, but very little actual driving. An explanation of how the car behaves can be interesting, but we want some great segments of video where it's just the engine, the car, and the views.


      That said, this car has always been on my personal short list for all-time favorites. Other than maybe a 458, there's no other Ferrari I'd want just as badly. Driving those roads also looks like a bucket list-level activity.

      Compared to say, the 458, the F40 is a truck.  I, for one, don't want to go back to 1989.

        A truck? It weighed 2,400 lbs which is almost 900 lbs less than the 458. That's 38% more weight for the 458 with just 19% more power. I'm sure it's faster around a track but a stick F40 must be a joy to drive!

      Driving an F40 cross-continent sounds like a terrible idea, but could turn out to be awesome.  Besides, someone's got to do it!
