The Stelvio Pass in the Italian Alps shot to worldwide attention when the team at Top Gear visited this legendary road back in Season 10 for their quest to find the greatest driving road in the world.

The road is still considered as one of the best roads for automotive enthusiasts and in a recent episode of Car & Driver Abroad, Jethro Bovingdon traced the Stelvio Road in the Ferrari 458 Spider to both test the car at its absolute limits while simultaneously experiencing the wonder of such a road.

The Ferrari 458 Spider is powered by a naturally-aspirated, 4.5 liter V8 engine producing 570hp. This powertrain is then mated to a dual-clutch F1 paddle-shift transmission driving the rear wheels and helping to rocket the car from a standstill to 100km/h in just 3.4 seconds and a top speed of 320km/h.
