The world's top race car drivers, and the gamblers who love them, convene in Monaco this week for the annual Grand Prix. From May 23-26, the winding roads of Europe's glamorous principality will be overtaken with automotive enthusiasts of every stripe.
While the Grand Prix is arguably the world's most famous Formula 1 race, Monaco isn't the only global destination car lovers should consider. From Germany's legendary Autobahn, to Model T mash-ups in Cuba, here are four other spots where fans can get their fix.

Havana, Cuba: For the majority of the 20th Century, Cubans only had access to cars purchased before the country's 1959 revolution. As a result, drivers got creative, trading and re-purposing vintage car parts to make existing vehicles last for some 50 years. These elegant, one-of-a-kind Model T mixtures now chortle through modern-day Havana in a moving museum of automotive ingenuity. Thanks to licensed tour operators like Insight Cuba, Americans can now legally see it for themselves.
