Watch Ford GT cruise Atlantic Ocean Road

Could this be the perfect road trip - a stately promenade of the ultimate coast road, followed by a record-breaking blast around a very special circuit, unfamiliar to all but the most committed racing aficionados?

The Atlantic Ocean Road, which showcases the jaw-dropping beauty of Norway’s shores, is certainly one of Europe’s greatest driving roads, a video series from Ford that now turns the spotlight on the GT supercar.

As a public road, the Atlantic Ocean Drive, consisting of a string of eight bridges that connect the towns of Karvag and Vevang, is subject to strictly enforced speed limits. But to showcase exactly what the 655 hp Ford GT is capable of, there is a mouth-watering detour to the little‑known Arctic Circle Raceway, where Ford Chip Ganassi Racing driver and Le Mans veteran Stefan Mucke sets a new lap record at what is the world’s most northerly circuit.

The Norwegian trip is the seventh video in the Europe’s Greatest Driving Roads series, achieving a score of 53/60 on factors including thrills, accessibility and hospitality.
