Challenge to find driving heaven (TopGear)

It all started with Top Gears challenge to find driving heaven.

Route: Monte Carlo – Col De Turini – Lake Maggiore – San Bernandino Pass – Chur – Vaduz – Davos – Bormio – Stelvio Pass

It is a great road but I’m not sure if I quite agree that it is the best driving road. East side of Stelvio pass is very narrow. I would not take supercar there unless the road would be closed.
