Rhys Millen slides up a mountain

Video: Pikes Peak hero takes Hyundai coupe and travels mostly sideways up Brazilian mountain road

Think Europe has the monopoly on sensational spaghetti-shaped driving roads? Brazil would like to take that conception and drop it off a mountain range.

Preferably, this one. The Serra Do Rio Do Rastro is not a ‘New Latin Gym Free Dance Craze!' but a mountain range in Southern Brazil. And along this mountain range lies a stretch of tarmac seemingly created by the gods of oversteer.

Pikes Peak legend Rhys Millen and the Red Bull team decided this narrow path with little run-off and lots of peril should be tackled sideways. They strapped Rhys into a race-prepped 750bhp Hyundai Genesis coupe, gave him a pat on the back and sent him on his way.

This is the result.

Now share it...
