Gunbarrel looks like a very interesting drive.

Route 62 between Cape Town and the Eastern Cape in South Africa.

All the tourists drive the N2 (Garden Route), but running in parallel slightly inland is a gem that I think is an even better drive. And no trucks or cops

I've been lucky enough to call it my drive to work on a couple of occasions

The other roads that people mention as being the 'best in Australia' include the Captain Cook Highway between Cairns and Port Douglas, the Alpine Way (through the Australian Alps) and the Lady Wakehurst Drive/Lawrence Hargrave Drive between Sydney and Wollongong.

The passes in Carpathian mountains are the most beautiful in Europe!

Usually you would include Norways Fv63 on such a list:

I recommend this road, if you're already dying.

This was around 5-10 years ago, now the road was upgraded to modern standards and it's no longer the most dangerous in the world.

Most countries with mountains have similar roads so a list will largely depend on what the author is most familiar with.

Is that the one in Bolivia that was on Top Gear?*

Actually a lot of these have been on Top Gear....

All those endless mountain passes are of course very picturesque but driving them all one after another won't give you lots of new emotions and experience. The list is incomplete without the Road of Bones.

Probably the river in the pic #1 can be crossed only in winter when it's frozen.

It looks safer to cross through the river rather than on that 'bridge'.
