It really is the road trip of a lifetime.
South Africa has some absolutely gorgeous mountain roads. At the same time, there are plenty of risks. For example, there is no cell phone reception when you’re driving through those mountains. There are very few gas stations and traffic is very light. That can be both good and bad, depending on whether you’re experiencing mechanical problems. But still, a road trip like this requires the right car to make it special. You’ll need a proper driver’s car.
Enter the BMW M235i, the coupe that perhaps best represents the German automaker’s pure driving roots. Sound interesting? Looking for an adventure? Join /Drive’s JF Musial for a video road trip across South Africa’s Western Cape.
