Mumbai - Goa ( via Mumbai - Pune - Bangalore highway) beautiful 6 lane highway. Monotonous drive, just like any other expressway. Distance is more than 600 kms . Honda Civic.

Mumbai - Goa ( Mumbai - Goa highway ) through Konkan with towns like ratnagiri, chiplun etc on the way. Extremely scenic all along and fun to drive with single lane roads on each side and 2 amazing ghats ( lote parshuram and kashedi ) and they are now expanding the road to 2 lane each side. tough task i must say. distance - 600kms
Honda Civic & Hyundai i20 1.4 petrol

Done Ahmedabad - Mumbai as well but its not 600kms. Around 550kms.

If cabs are counted
"Bangalore - Mysore - ooty - Kodaikanal - Chennai Airport", dont remember how many kms, but then when I reached back home to New Delhi, I finished a bottle of tiger balm rubbing my arse..

Stayed overnight at each destination, and the ride was a chauffeur driven Tavera..

Self driven is 700 return trip in my zen, 135km/hr max..
Went to Delhi - Dehradoon - Mussorie - Dehradoon - Delhi
4 friends with 4 case full of beer..

The longest I have driven on a trip was about 3600 km on a road trip from Windsor, Ontario to Peace River, Alberta in November 2008 in my Mitsubishi Lancer I used to own.

I drove through Ontario-Michigan-Indiana-Illinois-Wisconsin-Minnesota-North Dakota-Saskatchewan-Alberta. It was supposed to take me 3 days, but took me 5 days instead, as I was stuck in a snow storm in North Dakota. This is the route I took:
