Our Roadtrip around Europe...many pics!

Evening all,

Thought I should finally get these pics up seeing as I have some free time!!
Me, my bro and my dad came back from a great Road Trip through many countries in continental Europe...

3 cars went:

BMW E92 325i - MINE!
AUDI TT 3.2 - brother's
Lambo Gallardo Spyder - daddy's

I'll describe the route we took using pictures!!

DOVER



PART 1

Then drove through France and stayed a night in Liege (Belgium)
Next day on to my favorite part of the trip, the Nurburgring...













Then you had me staying true to BMW driver etiquette, by hogging the fast lane...



Regret not taking a ride in one of these!



Then drove into Switzerland and stayed in Zurich for ein nacht.. didnt take any pics cos it was BORIN'!

PART 2

Next day drove into Italy down the Stelvio Pass, and after a long drive ended up at Lake Como, a beautiful place!







PART 3ish

Drove to Sant Agata, Bolognese... i.e. the Lamborghini factory







Had more pics but have yet to download em to the PC

PART 4

Our final leg of the trip, had us drive South West to a small Principality, where the Playa's Play

Monte Carlo










PIC OF THE TRIP


Although, in the wrong order!

A lot of pics I know, but I really couldnt be arsed to pic a few good ones...

Enjoy, and I'm off to sleep.

What a great trip

I think that the TT doesn't look bad in white personally!

The Lamborghini factory looks like there are some fantastic cars there, what is that Lamborghini 4X4?!

That will be the LMO02:

Can't believe you all have white cars. Coincidence?

Some fine automobiles on show there.

I would have expected a few snaps of some refined species of the female variety too - especially in Monte Carlo?

So apart from having being a spoilt child, you also have an extremely hard life as an adult then TSL

Great pics. and no doubt you all had a good time. Lake Como is certainly stunning.

Your Dad doesn't want a daughter does he?

Thanks for the comments, it certainly is one of those trips we don't do very often!

I did try my best, only every time I took the camera out they ran away... and besides I didn't want to go down as the 'perv of Mont Carlo'
Honestly tho, the totty of the trip has to go to Italy... The land of beautiful women

Yep, the LM002. The same engine that was later used in the Countach! Apparently had the Hummer boys from the USA never existed, we would all be looking at a very different military transport vehicle!

Hey! A child is allowed to be spoilt excessively, OTT, beyond repair now and then isn't he?
But just for the record I had to pay for the fuel myself, and it huuurt
haha, a daughter? You could ask him, but I would still be his favorite! So MLEEH! (just me sticking out my tongue, like a spoilt brat)

Great pics TSL.

Thats one cool road trip. All 3 cars looked great.

Is the TT quicker than your 325?

Hello mate,
Well, in a straight line, yes, that 3.2 V6 is all too powerful for my 325i
When it came to the 'gring we could never get a clean lap! Every lap at least one other driver went off! (Not us, thank God)
But I managed to time 1 lap, where again there was an accident along the way and got a 9:39.32
My brother's TT had a similar problem on his timed lap, someone came off so he had to stop. He managed a 10:01.43

So either I'm a better driver, or I have the better car... or I had better luck, but I prefer one of the latter!!
