The Hahntennjoch runs between the two Austrian towns of Imst and Elmen, and is a fairly short drive -- 45 minutes or so -- from the spectacular city of Innsbruck and it's international airport. The airport being close is a good thing, as the Hahntennjoch is an adrenaline-pumping road for the ages. Walls of granite line the first mile or so while heading north, and exhaust -- or bike pedaling -- noises echo. Then there is room for speed. The liberal Austrian speed limits exist on the Hahntennjoch, and between the traditional Alpine hairpins lays sweeping bends where you can stretch a supercar's legs or give your quadriceps the shock of their lives.

While the Col De Turini didn't win Top Gear's greatest road in the world in 2007, the road certainly is due on the Konkr Roads Gold listings for its 7.2% average grade, endless serpentine, and the provenance of the Tour De France and the Monte Carlo Rally. A great feature of this road is that it's only an hour drive from the stunning French Mediterranean city of Nice. Not only can you fly into Nice and hire a ride easily, but the family can have a fun outing while you Konkr one of the most famous and daunting roads on our list.
