On of the things that I think most impresses about Top Gear is the production values. The cinematography, sound and music, and location choices, all conspire to create automotive ballets that are stirring and sometimes heart stopping in the majesty of those element’s combined impact. And then Clarkson comes on, saying something about a man sausage or that a little wee has come out, and ruins the moment.
Well, this German short, which has been around a while, still combines grand orchestration, the guttural notes generated by an Audi RS5 (which I can tell you is biblical) along with beautiful visuals along Italy’s Stelvio Pass is like Top Gear without all the snark. So make the jump, and then sit back and enjoy. Oh, and you might just want to turn up the volume a little bit, I’m sure your co-workers will appreciate it.
