The spectacular Ford GT wanders far to the north and also beats a record

The arrival of the first units of the Ford GT to Europe, besides being arousing much expectation, also delights us with audiovisual marvels like this one.
The Ford boys have commissioned the famous British journalist Steve Sutcliffe to take the Ford GT to some of the most beautiful roads in Europe. He has chosen the Atlantic Highway in northwest Norway, and the result is simply brutal.
Driving a 655 hp supercar on a 60 km/h speed-limit road may seem a bit ridiculous, but the reality is that the views on this route are so impressive that it's hard not to get excited to see such a feat.
It is a road that goes literally over the sea, joining the cities of Kårvåg and Vevang through eight bridges of impressive dimensions.
The sea as a dish, the environment in which it has been built and the situation where it is, make it one of those roads that is already on the list of which we must travel at least once in life.
After delighting in a quiet day of driving on that road, we had to make the most of the Ford GT. For this they went to a little known circuit, the Arctic Circle Circuit.
Located just 19 miles from the Arctic Circle, this circuit is the one located to the north of Europe, so you can only circulate in it for a few months a year.
There the driver of the Ford Chip Ganassi team in the 24 Hours of Le Mans Stefan Mücke gets behind the wheel of the new supercar and gets a record. The previous record of the track was in 1: 41.0 and after a few laps of adaptation, he achieves fulminarlo marking 1: 36.292.
Obviously this is not a record with as much depth as the one achieved by the Porsche 911 GT2 RS with its 6 minutes and 47 seconds in the Nordschleife, but equally worth seeing and especially listen to the blowing the engine of the Ford GT, now yes , by the roads of Europe.
