What started as an exciting journey with three supercars on the backroads of Italy, proved in the end to be a rather frustrating ride.

It's certainly a great convoy when an Audi R8 V10 Plus is the slowest and least powerful supercar of the trio, with the other vehicles being a Ferrari F12 Berlinetta and the Porsche 918 Spyder. The attached footage was recorded by an on-board camera inside the R8 driven by Tim Burton (aka Shmee150) while driving on Italy's beautiful countryside.

Leading the way was the F12 Berlinetta but it turned out to be a big mistake as the car's navigation system provided the wrong directions and as a consequence all three supercars had to tackle rough roads which are far from being suitable for vehicles with such a low ground clearance.

The good news is in the end "all cars escaped full unharmed", according to Tim.
