Z-Performance wheels bring us an exciting video of two exciting BMWs on an equally exciting road.
Ramona Rusu and Gabriel Imre, two car drifters from Romania, take their modified E30 3 Series models to Transfagarasan, the very same road made famous by Top Gear and considered one of the most exciting roads to drive on in the entire world.
The Transfăgărășan (trans (over, across) + Făgăraș) or DN7C is the second-highest paved road in Romania. Also known as Ceaușescu’s Folly, it was built as a strategic military route, the 90 km of twists and turns run north to south across the tallest sections of the Southern Carpathians, between the highest peak in the country, Moldoveanu, and the second highest, Negoiu. The road connects the historic regions of Transylvania and Wallachia, and the cities of Sibiu and Pitești.
In September 2009 the cast and crew of the British television show Top Gear were seen filming along the road. The segment appeared in the first episode of Series 14 which first aired November 15, 2009. They were in the country on a grand tour with an Aston Martin DBS V12 Volante, Ferrari California and a Lamborghini Gallardo LP560-4 Spyder. Host Jeremy Clarkson went on to declare the Transfăgărășan as “the best road in the world” – a title that the presenters previously gave to the Stelvio Pass in Italy.
The video below not only showcases their drifting skills and the amazing E30, but it also offers some memorable views of the mountain road.
