I didn't see anybody had written about the highways in Turkey! So: the entire ring road of the capital Ankara is in format 4+4 lanes. The total length is approximately 110 km.

Also Q-2 in Istanbul is about 30 km in format 4+4 (which runs through the Sultan Mehmet bridge), if it is counted as a ring road.

It looks more like a city road. But such cases are special: right (slower) lanes feel like driving on a city road, while left (overtaking) lanes feel like driving on a freeway. I doubt you have to pay attention to pedestrians on the leftmost lane.

Bulgaria got its first 2*4 part of a highway today. It is a approximate 1100 m long section of the south part of the Sofia ring road!

The A43 outside of Lyon, France goes 2x4 for 12km.
Further south near Orange, there are some long stretches or 2x4 and 2x5 on the A7 as well.

This stretch of motorway isn't continuously 8 lanes wide. It drops lanes at most junctions.

Doesn't France have a ca 30 Kms stretch of 4+4 south of Paris, on A10, I think? I has driven this section few years ago.

Most of the freeways around Johannesburg and Pretoria have recently been widened to at least 2x4. The longest stretch of 2x4 or more by route number is now on the N1 between the Golden Highway and the Proefplaas Interchange at 82 km, though you do have to turn off twice to stay on the N1. If you go the other way around Johannesburg via the N12 Southern Bypass and N3 Eastern Bypass then it is 87 km between the two points.

Not a ringroad, but beltway.

And here in Ankara, urban highways have 2x4 and 2x5 parts. (like routes to Eskişehir and Istanbul)

There is a 1.1km 4+4 stretch on the A1 in the west of the Limattalerkreuz, to my knowledge the longest in Switzerland
