The Transfaragan road was built from 1970 through 1974 by order of Romanian ruler Nicolae Ceauescu after the 1968 invasion of Czechoslovakia by the Soviet Union. The goal was to have quick passage through the Fagaras, the highest mountains in the Southern Carpathians, in the event the Soviets attacked Romania. The road is usually only open from June to September, due to harsh weather conditions for the remainder of the year. Jeremy Clarkson once called the Transfaragan "the best road in the world," a testament to its many dramatic turns.
Six Lamborghini Huracans drove through the Transfaragan, testing the hairpin turns, and passing through scenic areas, including one near the ruins of Poenari Castle, once the residence of Vlad the Impaler, the inspiration for Count Dracula.
