As part of the 2011 London to Ulan Bator Mongol Rally, San Francisco-based videographer Jeff Diehl made a 4 minute time-lapse video out of what must've been a gruseome 11-day trip in a cramped Fiat Panda. Gorgeous scenography, though.

It took two of us 11 days in a 1.2L Fiat Panda to get from the Russian border to the capital city of Ulaanbaatar, but you can do it in 4 minutes thanks to the dashboard cam that recorded it all. Experience the roadlessness, the bandits, the breakdowns, the yaks, and the camels, without ever having to figure out how to steer and shift a right-driving mini-car through some of the remotest land on the planet. And see it out the windshield just like we did.
