F1 cars in the mountains? Only Japan
Watch a couple of Formula 1 racers hoon up a mountain in Japan
Nothing encapsulates why so many people love Japan's frequently-insane car culture than videos like this one — the latest dropped by MOTOR HEAD magazine.
Directed by Luke Huxham, the same name behind Monster Energy's wild video of a Lamborghini and Mustang drifting through the alps, the video follows a Benetton Ford and a John Player Special Lotus as they snake through the hills singing their respective shrill songs during the Hakone Hill Climb. Naturally, a few drift cars, sports cars, and other local oddities also join in for the fun.
Check it out in all of its cinematic glory below. We just wish the music would step back a touch to let us fully appreciate those amazing sounds ...
