Wiesmann at Gurnigel hillclimb: Time For Coffee?


While Geneva is all well and good for prestigious manufacturers to show expensive cars to wealthy people, having so many fast cars stationary in a hall can feel a little sterile. Track focused, ruthlessly honed supercars going absolutely nowhere does seem to defeat the point somewhat.

So time for a mad Swiss hillclimb vid, to redress the balance. For a country seemingly so against motorsport and fast cars in general, Switzerland can host a jolly exciting hillclimb. Its people seem keen on making the most of them, too.

This isn’t a new video, or anything truly spectacular for the hillclimb vid collection, but it’s damn cool nonetheless. Partly because it’s wet and slippery, but mainly because it involves a V10 Wiesmann. With a manual gearbox...

So you get scenic hillclimb, V10 shriek, and powerslides. What more do you need for a morning pick me up? Watch it below!

    Turns in nicely in the wet. European tracks (closed roads?) look wider than the narrow ones we have here in the UK.

    Yup would have rounded corners at Doune!
