JETHRO BOVINGDON DRIVES THE STELVIO PASS IN FERRARI 458 SPIDER

Not long ago British sports car writer Jethro Bovingdon crashed a Ferrari FF into a low stone curb. So when we found out that Jethro had been invited by Chris Harris to drive a brand new Ferrari 458 Spider through the Stelvio Pass, a road that is well… basically lined with low stone walls, we felt it was appropriate to share. This video was shot for a new Car & Driver segment called the Car and Driver Abroad video series and marks Jethro Bovingdon’s first trip to the Stelvio Pass.
The Stelvio Pass has been referred to as the “World’s Greatest Road”, at over 9,000 feet high, it is one of the highest roads in Europe, and is responsible for connecting northern Italy to southern Switzerland. Not only does the altitude and location provide for amazing scenery, they help illustrate what makes this road so special, the curves. The Stelvio pass, constructed by the Austrians in 1820 consists of 48 hairpin turns covering over 16 miles of road that was built long before the creation of the automobile and lined with a beautiful, yet low stone wall that protects the driver from very steep drop-offs.
