But then of course what a car!

...but the sound mixing needs improvement. Towards the end Steves voice is hard to hear over the ever louder 'background' music. Otherwise great effort in putting this together. It is appreciated.

Surely the Stelvio is surely too narrow and twisty to unwind a car as heavy & wide as the GTR? Did Steve ever get out of second or third? Does the Launch Control include a rock wall avoidance plug in? :) There must be a lot of less photogenic roads where the Dunlops could have got a better banging for their advertorial buck.
