Mercedes Gullwing meets Bugatti Type 57

Most high-end classic cars in Europe are tucked up in dehumidified garages by November, so it's rather refreshing to see two beautiful classics taking part in a winter transcontinental dash in this video. Simon Kidston of Kidston SA and Robert Croucher of Octane Magazine drive a Mercedes 300SL Gullwing and a Bugatti Type 57 Atalante from London to Kidston's home base in Geneva. I particularly like the fact that the two cars are not obvious rivals, but would quite reasonably take part in a road trip together.

The roads of nothern France are often very lightly trafficked and much better for classic cars than the over-populated south east of England. In fact, the video has inspired me to plan a similar trip in my own Daytona.
