Ford have been testing our the Best Driving Roads in Europe with their Ford Mustang GT, a Ford Focus RS and a Fiesta ST.
The car maker has put together a series of videos of the best driving roads in Europe which include roads in the UK, Romania, Spain, France, Germany and more, you can see the videos below.
Working with Ford and BP/Castrol, motoring journalist Steve Sutcliffe – a veteran of more than 750 car launches across 42 countries – lent his experience to a project that showcases established favourites alongside little-known gems. Over six videos, Sutcliffe gets behind the wheel to explore each road while offering historic and cultural insights for every location.
“It’s amazing some of the roads that didn’t actually make the list – but we weren’t just looking for twisty runs to please the petrol heads. We scored each route for thrills, quality of road surface, accessibility, hospitality, scenery, and food and drink,” said Sutcliffe, a former racing driver. “Enthusiasts will know of some of the roads, like the Transfăgărășan Highway in Romania, but perhaps not the C462, in Spain. In some ways it would be nice to keep these roads to ourselves – but when roads are this good they need to be shared.”
For each “Europe’s Greatest Driving Roads” video, Sutcliffe drove the Ford that best complemented each route, including the new Focus RS, Mustang 5.0 V8 GT, Mustang 2.3 EcoBoost, Focus ST, Focus ST diesel and Fiesta ST.
“Our goal was to share our knowledge of the finest driving roads across Europe with people who love cars and love driving,” said Mark Truby, vice president, Communications & Public Affairs, Ford of Europe. “It’s a true ‘bucket list’ not just for petrol heads, but anyone who wants to plan an amazing road trip.”
There are definitely some amazing looking drives in the video and worth checking out of you intend on going on a road trip in Europe.
