Favorite Autobahn for max speed

What is the best piece of autobahn or other Euro road for high speed touring? Aesthetics (if you can take your eyes off the road...), safety, time of day, traffic flow, distance from munich, etc. This would be useful for folks on Euro delivery. Please submit your favorites, photos would be cool, and if warranted, I will post a dreaded poll. I guess the 'ring counts, but I am hoping for less obvious nominations. Wicked alpine, forest, or sea coast twisties also desired.

Build in 1930 or so this 27km(18miles or so) long 'dike' 'AFSLUITDIJK'connects North Holland(province) to Friesland(where I live)
I achieved 280kmh(178mph) here(Carrera 4) and a friend of mine 330kmh(205) on tacho(M5 V10)
The father of a friend of mine sets the current record, 5 years ago: 345kmh(215mph) on tacho(Ferrari F40)

Many speedtraps and cameras there nowadays:

My grandfather was from Leeuwarden, I have distant cousins there that I should look up. I get to Utrecht to the National Children's Hospital once in a while, now I have a good excuse to zip up to Fryslånd

Which route to Fussen? A96 & A7, then back via the Romantische strasse and Alpenstrasse? That is a great one in my opinion.

Just as an aside to this, ca. 60% of the Autobahn in Germany has no speed limit if i recall correctly.

It is important to keep in mind that there can be multiple speed limits imposed en route for construction, weather, fog, and so on.

In Austria, we have generally a 130 km/h limit but recently one stretch of the Autobahn was raised to 160 km /h.

There are many many cameras en route and they won't pick you up up to 150 km/h so be careful!
