15 of the World's Best Roads
Specs and lap times can give you a better understanding of a car’s capabilities but they are not the be-all and end-all. The connection between man and machine cannot be easily quantified or observed (although Winding Road has been trying with its Involvement Index) yet it is that connection that all automotive enthusiasts seek. Forget the zero-to-60 and the Top Gear Power Lap times; they only paint part of a picture. The real essence of any car is how it makes the driver feel when placed on an open road.
Below you will find 15 of the best roads for man and machine to connect. They have twists, turns, long straights, and, of course, beautiful scenery. The perfect car has yet to be determined, but these might be the best roads to conduct such a test.
Get the full list below and follow the link for a brief description of what each road has to offer.
