There is fast. Then there is Reto Meisel's Mercedes SLK340 Judd V8 fast. Need convincing? Just hit play and let Europe’s fastest hillclimb machine beat you to your senses.
Video: This SLK hillclimb on board may be the most mind‑blowing of all
The bum-clenching clip could easily be mistaken as video in fast-forward. Its ridiculousness reminds us of smashing lap records on Gran Turismo after a month of solid finger bashing. It is pure, unadulterated, on the edge, fill-your-pants-with-worry motor racing of the highest order, and we can’t stop watching it.
As if the searing pace is not enough, there’s added kudos for the spark-filled wheel arch camera angle too. Nice.
