Do you have £200,000? Then you can have the trip of a (hazardous) lifetime

Are you tired of the ever-boring home to work commute? Well, if you’re the adventurous type and can afford the paycheck, the world’s most hazardous roads are waiting for the car fanatic that roars in you.

 

There are those who see skydiving and bungee jumping not scary enough or those who seek to have the thrill of their life in a rather “organized” manner. Well, for clients like these or those ranging in between the two, a company can set you up to a wide variety o cars – ranging from the Corolla to Bugatti’s Veyron – and send you on your merry way on what are considered as 22 of the most perilous road journeys.

China's Guoliang Tunnel Road - Extremely dangerous

 

The two-day break, not intended for those who are on a “nervous disposition” sends the client at the wheel of the car he chooses to borrow on one of the 22 dangerous roads. While one road and one car for a £200,000 price tag could seem much – we’re sure not many would opt for the Corolla instead of the Veyron.

 

More so, the company gives an instructor, takes the driver there on a private flight and accommodates him in five star venues – all the while allowing him to choose one of the 22 roads on an interactive map that signals fear factors and perilous facts.

“You’ll spend an exhilarating day behind the wheel, facing up to the tightest of corners and terrifying sheer drops, with severe weather conditions and battered roads providing an injection of adrenaline to this white-knuckle ride of an experience,” the company says.

 

The company (Buyagift.com) also admits that because of the different types of roads, choosing a car would not be left entirely to the driver, as its aim is not to endanger any life and suit the best individual needs.

Nanga Parbat is the ninth highest mountain in the world. Extremely dangerous

 

The map that the holiday is based on, created by Hertfordshire-based Driving Experiences was actually set up to highlight the perils of driving – as although safety is constantly improving, over 1.2 million people are killed each year and 20 to 50 million get injured.
