SLIDESHOW: Some of the world’s best driving roads.

There’s a time and a place for private jets, but sometimes the most enjoyable way to travel is simply by car.

Especially if you’re behind the wheel of an iconic Porsche 911 Carrera 4, a Lamborghini Huracan or an Aston Martin Vantage.

Billionaire looks at five of Europe’s most stunning driving roads and the best luxury cars to drive on them, thanks to luxury and classic car rental service iSuperdrive.

Stelvio Pass, Switzerland and Italy
Recommended: Porsche 911 Carrera 4

At an elevation of 9,045ft above sea level, the Stelvio Pass is one of the most scenic drives in the world. With an unparalleled location in the depths of the Italian Ortler Alps, drivers can expect both spectacular scenery and exhilarating views. The road itself is a marvel of engineering skill and the thrilling serpentine sections ask to be driven in a high-performance car. A bespoke Swiss Alps & Stelvio driving tour provides a combination of both this exceptional piece of road and the opportunity to tackle it in a Porsche 911 Carrera 4. Starting in Zürich, the four-day adventure takes drivers on an unforgettable drive from Switzerland to Italy, along the high-altitude road that presents more than 50 180-degree hairpin corners. Following praise from Jeremy Clarkson as “the greatest driving road in the world”, this invigorating voyage deserves its place on many a bucket list.
