The real world: it’s where the rubber hits the road, so to speak. It’s the place where all that bench racing and all those Internet arguments finally become completely obsolete. It’s the place where actual physics and talent combine for one definitive outcome. Don’t get me wrong, facts and figures are great; they help paint a baseline for expectations. But ultimately, they are merely the tools of those looking for an approximation. They are not authentic experience. The only way to get something like that is to take it out and drive it.

Thankfully for all us web jockeys out there, YouTube auto-star Shmee is doing the dirty work of driving some of the best cars ever made on some of the most epic roads on the planet. What a trooper. Like some kind of petrol bloodhound, Shmee seeks out the supercar story and records it for our enjoyment and envy. This time, he’s in the Italian switchbacks with about $1.3 million of car, give or take a few hundred thousand dollar bills.

These are definitely not pro drivers on a track, and although the limits of these amazing vehicles are several tenths down the line, it’s easy to appreciate the thrill this drive must have been.

So what happens after you drive your incredibly expensive exotic deep into the back roads of a foreign country? Well, that should be obvious- you get incredibly lost. Watch the second video (after the jump) for some cheek clenching as this trio squeezes past vineyards and tractors in a bid to make it back to civilization. Don’t worry, there’s a happy ending.

One more video after the jump.
