Truthfully, I don't think those hair pins etc would be that much fun to drive... The view is what makes the experience IMHO.

PS - Mt Keira FTW!!! :D

I wouldn't necessary want to do it in our cars, but how about going uphill in a poweful RWD ;). (No cyclists of course)

you can get 95% of that experience dragging at traffic lights IMO: accelerate, brake, take a slow tight turn, accelerate, brake.

I don't think anyone I know has ever put that on their "I must drive that before I die" list.

IMHO, the breathtaking scenery and cambered corners of such an exotic location would make up more than 5%.

Going to Davos-stelvio pass after finishing my Uni.

Wants to go there because Top Gear recommends it.

Plus if I can go to nurburgring+another autobahn run after last year went there and can reach 250Km/h

What a lovely country...

Personally before I die I want to live in Germany as long as I can. hehe. :D

Stelvio Pass is an impressive piece of engineering, but it's far from the best drive in Europe.

Last time I drove the amusingly named Furka Pass, saying the Stig meant this bloke:

The snow and ice were melting and there were streams of water and ice all over the road, but I'd rate this as the best I've driven.

I might as well add that one to my list Tony whilst I'm in Italy driving the Stelvio ;).

What cars you going to drive Naldo; hired I presume?
