There are few things we enjoy more than traveling and driving great cars on great roads. It’s something most performance enthusiasts love, but it’s often reserved for regional road trips. Thanks to a new video series from Ford, we can all dream big when it comes to planning that next epic adventure, as they have worked with longtime automotive journalist and former race driver Steve Sutcliffe to select and document some of Europe’s greatest driving roads.
“It’s amazing some of the roads that didn’t actually make the list—but we weren’t just looking for twisty runs to please the petrol heads. We scored each route for thrills, quality of road surface, accessibility, hospitality, scenery, and food and drink,” the former racing driver and veteran journalist said. “Enthusiasts will know of some of the roads, like the Transfăgărășan Highway in Romania, but perhaps not the C462, in Spain. In some ways it would be nice to keep these roads to ourselves—but when roads are this good they need to be shared.”
