THE 8 BEST TUNNELS IN THE WORLD TO DRIVE THROUGH
You Could Say We Have a Serious Case of "Tunnel Vision"
Let’s face it; most of the time tunnels are made as a form of transportation. A tunnel, whether being carved out of clay, through the middle of a tree, or a solid slab of concrete under a riverbed, is something everyone can appreciate. Masters of engineering hypothetically created these tunnels for the common man's commute, but we know that’s a myth. A tale as old as time traces back to the tunnels being created for one purpose, and that is automotive acoustics. That is probably not true, but we like to think it is.
Anyone who has been blasting through a tunnel knows that there is nothing quite like it. The enormous echo that radiates through the tunnel amplifies the exhaust to the level of a rock concert. To elaborate, the engine roars like a choir of angles, and the supercar throws you back in your seat with the force of Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson. Going through these passageways like a rocket is something you won’t ever forget.
Some are wide, others narrow, but nevertheless the isolation of peripheral vision allows you to only focus on one thing, and that is what’s ahead. While some of these tunnels are mundane, some are extravagant to see! After extensive research, we have compiled a list of some of the most beautiful and unforgettable tunnels in the world! You will have to see it to believe it.
