Some Transportation History


The 10 longest road tunnels

Without these enormous tubes buried deep underground, the motoring world would be a smaller, more restricted place, designed for cars, vans and trucks to travel safely without risk of collapse:

  • Laerdal, Norway 24.5 km (15'/4 miles) — opened November 2000
  • Zhongnanshan, China 18.04 km (11 1/8 miles) — opened January 2016

  • Mont Blanc/Monte Bianco, France/Italy 11.6 km (71/4 miles) — opened July 1965

The most expensive car book ever published

Only 10 copies of the 'special edition' of Ferrari in Camera: From Ascari to Villeneuve were published in 2001 by Palawan Press. With a painted metal cover, aluminium edging and a vellum spine, each book cost £2500. Other editions of this sumptuous photographic book were more attainable, however: one hundred 'leather' edition copies cost £1000 each, and the 890 'standard' editions were £350 each.
