Is this the scariest road you’ve seen? Italian racer sets speed record on China’s terrifying mountain highway with 99 BENDS
Most people when driving along a dangerous mountain highway would take it with care.
However Fabio Barone, president of the Ferrari Club Passione Rossa of Italy, set a speed record on the mountain highway which contains some 99 bends, reports the People’s Daily Online.
The driver lapped 6.8-mile Tianmenshan Mountain Road in less than 10 minutes and 30 seconds in a Ferrari 458 on September 21.
In order to earn a better lap time, Barone replaced the original steel body of the car with carbon fibre, reducing the vehicle’s body weight by 198 pounds.
He also upgraded its rims, suspension and circuits.
