See history re-created in a modern concept car, visit the hottest test-track on earth, and then go testing again-in the opposite extreme. Automotive landmarks featured in this program include: the BMW 328, unveiled and driven at the 2006 Mille Miglia by nine-time winner Guliano Cane; a hot-weather proving grounds in Arizona, near Death Valley-essential for developing safeguards against dust as well as overheating; and an equally challenging test site in Sweden, north of the Arctic Circle, used by Volvo and other manufacturers to determine car safety and effectiveness in icy weather. Die-hard test drivers Rikard Vevang, Anders Polheimer, and Veronica Anderson provide commentary.
