Driving through Swiss Alps we reach 2048 meters at Oberalppass and we encounter some rather exotic rides. Knowing what speeds they can reach it is on a normal road it is scary to think what happens on the narrow and winding like a snake Alpine roads.
At this height there is still a lot of snow. Fortunately, all of it off the road. 🙂 Most or all of the passes are closed in winter for obvious reasons. Too much snow. Even now – middle of May – only a few are open. No wonder if you look at the amount of snow piled on the side of the road.
So, this is what I drive: a modest Ford Focus. My kids can’t resist a thorough pummeling each other with snow balls. And in reality it is colder than that – they are just super manly and don’t care about the cold 😉
This is what other people drive: Aston Martin.
And this is what yet some other people drive: I have no idea what it is! It looks like a cross between a racing car and a rocket. The doors open up. It does not seem to have a shift stick. Anyone knows what this beauty is?! Everyone who was around was taking selfies with it 🙂
The mystery is solved! Thanks to Sherry Lynn Felix from PORT4U the mystery car is Porsche 918 Spyder Hybrid 🙂
It turns out that the last solution is wrong. Thanks to Nana Arima from Tsumetai Sora it is Koenigsegg Agera R. It is Swedish! I admit that I have never heard of this one 🙂 But upon consulting the all knowing google I found out that it was produced between 2011 and 2014 and only 18 of them were made!!! It can reach speed of 402 km/h !!! It costs over $ 4 million. Other slightly different models were made later, all in the same class of race cars like the before mentioned Porsche 918 Spyder or Ferrari LaFerrari. And I saw one… 🙂
