Advertised as the most exclusive road trip adventure, Gumball 3000 is synonymous with fast cars and celebrity drivers. This annual 3,000 mile rally visits some of the most awesome locations the world has to offer, with spectacular parties held at every staging point. Apart from the entrance fee of around $50,000 the 120 competitors also have to cover insurance, hefty fuel costs, and the occasional speeding fines!
Celebrating its 15th anniversary this year, the rally begins in Copenhagen, travels across Scandinavia and through Eastern Europe, with the final stage being timed to coincide with the Monaco Grand Prix. The most anticipated car in the 2013 rally is the Batman Tumbler, but as previous winning vehicles have included a Citroen 2CV and a VW campervan, the bespoke supercar might not necessarily become the owner of the coveted ‘Spirit of the Gumball’ Trophy.
