The Jebel Hafeet Mountain Road - UAE

The Jebel Hafeet Mountain Road in the United Arab Emirates (UAE) is the greatest driving road in the world. Stretching for 7.3 miles and climbing nearly 4,000 feet, it boasts 60 corners and a surface so smooth that it would flatter a racetrack. It could easily be described as the eighth wonder of the world, but almost nothing is known about its creation.[more]

Scale of Hafeet Mountain Road is extraordinary. It stretches for 7.3 miles.
In the Mini ragtop it took us around 8.5 minutes to complete the road's 60 corners.
The road is cut into the Jebel Hafeet mountain, the highest peak in the United Arab Emirates, the oil-rich Persian Gulf state.
The mountain spans the border with Oman and lies about 90 minutes' drive southeast of the thriving city of Dubai.
It looks down upon a dusty, desert landscape that belies a nation of astonishing wealth.
Black tire marks on the service road suggest we're not the only ones to have discovered the pleasures of this road.
