The Stelvio Pass is believed to be one of the most dangerous roads in the world. Located in the Italian Alps, this curved road attracts thousands of motorists every year, including the guys over at Car And Driver who recently took a Ferrari 458 Italia Spyder. The car was driven by Jethro Bovingdon - Car and Driver’s European correspondent - who was able to drop the top of the Spyder and experience the thrill of the ride.

As a reminder, the Ferrari 458 Italia Spyder is powered by a 4.5 liter V8 engine that delivers a total of 570 HP. This setup gets the sports car from 0-60 mph in just 3.4 seconds and up to a top speed of 202 mph. The engine also delivers an outstanding power output of 127 HP/liter and 120 Nm/liter and only 307 g/km of CO2 with a fuel consumption of just 13.3 l/100 km.

Jethro Bovingdon really rocks it out on that Stelvio Pass. He might get nervous a bit on doing that drift-driving on that dangerous road.
