As we love so much cars ,the best part is testing them in the street..
But where to find the perfect place to be with your beloved car ?
We suggest 9 greatest driving roads in the world that will leave you speechless (just incase if you’ve never passed over them before)
So before you run 30 ,make a list and make sure to pass once in those wonderful roads that in no particular order, here they are:

1.Col de Turini, France

colde-turini

Lets begin with the famous ‘’ Col de Turini ‘’ (1607 m) is a high mountain pass in the Alps in the department of Alpes-Maritimes in France.It is famous for a stage of the Monte Carlo Rally which is held on the tight road with its many hairpin turns. Until a few years ago, the Col de Turini was also driven at night, with thousands of fans watching the “night of the long knives” as it was called, due to the strong high beam lights cutting through the night.If you remember this pass was featured in the 1st episode of Top Gear series 10 when the presenters went in search of the greatest driving road in the world.

2.The 2nd that we selected is the Great Ocean Road located in Australia

Lorne

One of the most spectacular roads with the most amazing views. The Great Ocean Road starts at Torquay and travels 243 kilometres westward to finish at Allansford near Warrnambool, the largest city along the road. The road is 2 lane & is covered by a speed limit changing between 80 kilometres per hour and 100 kilometres per hour Great Ocean Road as viewed from Teddy’s Lookout, south of Lorne
For sure this road is a very very attractive area for the tourists in which much of the road hugs coastline affectionately known as the Surf Coast between Torquay and Cape Otway and the Shipwreck Coast further west of Cape Otway, providing visibility of Bass Strait and the Southern Ocean. The road penetrates rainforests, as well as beaches and cliffs composed of limestone and sandstone, which is susceptible to erosion.

3. The 3rd amazing pass is truly amazing , The Stelvio Pass, Italy

When we first saw this (long time ago) first thoughts were : hell yeah ! it would be such an amazing drift over here ! don’t you think that ?
The Stelvio Pass is located in Italy, (at 2757m) and is the highest paved mountain pass in the Eastern Alps, and the 2nd highest in the Alps, slightly below the Col de l’Iseran (2770 m).
The pass is located in the Ortler Alps in Italy between Stilfs (“Stelvio” in Italian) in South Tyrol and Bormio in the province of Sondrio. It is some 75 km from Bolzano and just 200 m from the Swiss border. The Umbrail Pass runs northwards from the Stelvio’s western ramp. The “Three languages peak” (Dreisprachenspitze) above the pass is so named because this is where the Italian, German and Romansh languages meet.Very interesting!

4. Nurburgring, Germany

Can not be absent one of the most famous race tracks in the world with lots of race history in it.
Nurburgring is located about 70 km south of Cologne, and 120 km northwest of Frankfurt. It features a Grand Prix race track built in 1984, and a much longer old “North loop” track which was built in the 20s around the village and medieval castle of Nürburg in the Eifel mountains. The north loop is 20.8 km long and has more than 300 meters (1,000 feet) of elevation change from its lowest to highest points. Jackie Stewart nicknamed the old track “The Green Hell,” and we know that everyone knows,this race track is widely considered to be the most demanding and difficult purpose-built racing circuit in the world.

5.Taroko Gorge, Taiwan

A very unique area with an amazing view!
The Taroko Gorge Road in Taiwan is another mountain route made by carving out rocks, like the Guoliang Tunnel road. Despite its name, the Central Cross-Island Highway is a narrow and winding mountain road, & only a bus can barely pass by at a time. But the highway itself is truly an engineering masterpiece, as it cuts through the mountains and joining the East and West Coast.
In the language of the Aboriginal Truku tribe ‘’Taroko’’ means : “magnificent and splendid! A found title that fits with the views of the area

6. Trollstigen, Norway
