Now here's a junket we'd be happy to take. Writing for Edmunds Inside Line, Alistair Weaver traveled all 7.3 miles (and 4,000 feet upward) of the Jebel Hafeet Mountain Road in the United Arab Emirates in a Mini Cooper S convertible. He describes the smooth-as-glass trail as "the greatest driving road in the world," with 60 corners rising to the UAE's highest peak. It's also none to bad for taking photos, as some of the story's accompanying photography would make the guys from Evo fall face down in their Kellogg's Crunchie Nut.
