Best place to take a drive?

If you could go anywhere in the world, just to drive, where would it be? Leave out tracks for now, I just wanna know if there's a certain place that you guys have been to or want to go to in the future.

Honestly, I don't know of many places, but the show Top Gear seems to praise the Isle of Man (sp?) for its lack of speed limits.

I always see these amazing European roads in car mag photoshoots, especially in BMW's press release videos & photos. I just want some ideas for the future.

That one road in the Top Gear episode where they went looking for the best road in the world. That was pretty freaking sweet!!

The Col de Turini in France.
The Stelvio Pass in Italy.

Both from the Top Gear episode [10x01].

I know there are so many other places that would be great, I just need to find out where they are...

TECHNICIALLY, the North Loop of the ring isn't a race-track. It is a 1-way toll road with no speed limit for a majority of the drive.

I like the stevio pass but its just so twisty I don't think its that good in the M3.

I'm gonna take the M to Millau and Reims for some photos before it gets shipped off back to the US.
