This year’s Gumball Rally took supercar owners and enthusiasts on an amazing journey from Dublin to Bucharest.
The Gumballers arrived in Bucharest late Friday evening on May 6th, where they received a very warm welcome in the city’s Constitution Square, across the street from the famous Palace of Parliament building, the world’s second largest administrative building after the Pentagon.
Some highway driving was done in the rain, but the weather cleared up when it mattered the most, making it easy for people to come and attend the parades, both in Bucharest as well as at the Sibiu checkpoint.
Doing all of the filming here is vlogger Shmee150, who attended this year’s event in a custom-wrapped 735 HP ABT Audi RS6.
A great camera car, if ever there was one, thanks to its all-round practicality, which also applies to handling “less than perfect” roads easier than Lamborghinis, Ferraris and McLarens while having more than enough grunt to keep up with them. According to Shmee, driving through Romania was the best day of the event despite encountering some cringe-inducing railroad crossings that might make you feel sorry for various supercars scraping their chins or bellies…
As for this year’s Gumball 3000 most memorable cars? Team Galag’s Lamborghini-based Batmobile most definitely stole the show, Shmee was impressed by an ultra-loud Panamera, and… well, you can watch the vid and take your pick from all kinds of machinery.
