I'm sure the guys from Top Gear know the secrets for a perfect road trip. But all of us: The Road trip with Porsche in 2012 wasn't bad either, or this year. We drove to Italy with the CLS 63 AMG and a Bentley GTC and got there Pagani, Ferrari and Lamborghini given. - But back to the topic.
If you drive a lot, you probably often drive above the speed limit and since Europe is teeming with speed limits, the only place to drive a Porsche GT 3 and an Aston Martin Vanquish is on the German autobahn. But German autobahns are not among the top roads for a “perfect road trip”. The lake Alps in France, Tuscany, the high alpine road, these roads are a lot more fun for a speedhead. Always assuming the right car.
Jeremy Clarkson and Richard Hammond, two of the Top Gear character heads, had the right cars. Just a Porsche GT3 and an Aston Martin Vanquish when they were on the road for a film shoot in France. The title:
“The perfect road trip”
To be flashed too much at a French toll booth at more than 50 km / h is not one of the ideas behind a perfect road trip. Because the French police are not among those representatives with great humor potential, especially not when it comes to “English speeders” in a “German” and a “British” sports car. The “immediate penalty” then also meant on the spot: loss of the driver's license and the entire contents of the wallet. Jeremy wrote in “The Sun - Newspaper”:
“If you are going to break the speed limit, make sure you are not in France. You would be advised to pay attention to what happened next. Because the on-the-spot fine was everything we had in our wallets. We were left penniless. And they took away our driving licenses. No court case. No arguing. Nothing. "
As far as the internet knows, both were later picked up by their team. Only driving a car in France has done it for now. Stupid. Because part of the really most beautiful routes for a perfect road trip, are located in southern France.
One can only hope that the part of their DVD has already been shot - in any case, the incident will be mentioned, I'm sure - here is the trailer for: “The perfect Road Trip”:
