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.
