This short film is pure, automotive awesomeness for anyone infatuated with 1980s European supercars and sports cars.

Set in beautiful Italy, this famous bunch of drivers pilot cars we all had hanging on our walls as kids. Valentino Balboni, the former Lamborghini test driver, drives the Countach. Stefan Roser, famous Ruf tester, drives the same Yellowbird he famously circled the Nurburgring in 8:05 in the video from 1987. Racing driver Mirko Venturi drives the Ferrari Testarossa before overheating and stealing Balboni’s Lamborghini at gunpoint. Finally, Sam Hancock, a sports car racer, drives the Aston Martin V8 Vantage.

Arguably, Hancock in the Aston wins the “Wolf of the Autostrada” award when he manages to win over the Italian grape farmer post-spin. Turn up the volume and decide for yourself, though; we wouldn’t mind a full-length feature if these few minutes are any hint of things to come.
