For the others, I can't say exactly - only from picture experiences.

Asia: United Arab Emirates
South America: Chile
Oceanic: Australia
Africa: Egypt

:
Why ?
It is because the high price (If you speak about tolled motorways) ?
the speed of cars ?
the caotic traffic ?
the traffic jam ?

"Is it because you are German and your opinion is biased towards German autobahnen?"

In Portugal sometimes it's

-América do Norte; América Central e América do Sul
-América do Norte (USA) e América Latina (Canada is totally forgotten)

Normaly it is:

-América do Sul (everything south of the US) & América do Norte (US) (Canada, again forgotten)

Define "best"!!.... is it the 'biggest', the 'longest', the 'newest', the 'best maintained', the 'most impressive', the 'most sophisticated' (with electronic signs etc), or what????

Unless you make that distinction all posts are very subjective and open to lots of debate..... in terms of 'network' or 'coverage of the country' I'd think that the Netherlands would probably win (it obviously helps that it's such a small country in size)... in terms of 'biggest' / 'longest' it would probably be the US globally, and Germany in Europe..... in terms of 'newest' it would probably be Asian (China, India etc.) or Eastern European countries (Czech Republic, Hungary, Poland maybe even including East German Autobahns). 'Most impressive' is a tough one - I guess any country mentioned in this thread so far can come up with a shot / pic showing jaw-dropping mega-highway/autobahn intersections etc... whether it's in California, Dubai, Buenos Aires, Frankfurt, Amsterdam, London, Tokyo, Melbourne, Shanghai or Seoul..... 'most sophisticated' in terms of traffic flow technology used etc I wouldn't have a clue, but I'd suspect it to be a European country.... I also remember vaguely watching a Discovery Channel program on the German Autobahn... apparently it's very special in the sense that its tar/concrete layer thickness is more than twice the thickness of freeways build in the US or elsewhere in the world as it ensures that cars can travel at high speeds in all weather conditions (250km/h and more, whether in -30C or +38C)..... which is probably unique...

Anyways, that's just my 5 cents worth to add to the conversation...

Cheers.

Tricky, when you yell "Real Madrid is the champion!!!", you don't define why they are indeed the champions, do you? Same with this thread - everyone will give you their subjective opinions.
