This ultimate guide to road trips is a must for every motor enthusiast.

From Cheddar Gorge in the UK to the Lost World Highway in New Zealand, this is a compilation of the most unforgettable and extraordinary journeys our planet has to offer.

Divided into themed chapters (Scenic, Adventure, and Historical & Cultural), this book strives to inspire readers to strike out on their own adventures, while also being the perfect read for the armchair traveller. Scenic routes include trips along Hadrian's Wall or along the Amalfi Coast, while Adventure routes take you along the 'Road of Death' in Bolivia and the Tianmen Mountain Road in China. Historical & Cultural drives follow routes of literary, historical or artistic significance, for instance Che Guevara's route through South America, or retracing Bonnie and Clyde's final drive. Each trip is supported with digital mapping and is illustrated by evocative full-colour images.

Whether you're raring to get out on the road, or you're looking for some escapist reading that will take you across the world from the comfort of your living room, this book has 1001 trips to stir your imagination.
