The TT Isle of Man Festival is one of the most famous motorsport festivals in the world. Every year, for over two weeks, 30 million fans are tuned and see top motorcyclists test their talent at the incredible "Mountain Course". But you do not have to be on two rounds so you can make the best of the mountain road – one of Europe's largest roads.
For the latest range of Ford films that feature hidden gems for both the driver and the traveler, journalist Steve Sutcliffe got behind the Ford Mustang Bullitt on an island where many roads are not limited by speed. (Although there are still laws against careless and dangerous driving.)

"Imagine the German motorways, then add the hills and twists and cut it to one path with incredible views and what you have are these absolutely fantastic and dramatic roads," said Sutcliffe. "The mountain road feels – and is – a totally dramatic place to drive, it's epic and completely different than others"
The mountain itself is supposedly unique as the only place from which you can see all four countries that make up the United Kingdom: England, Scotland, Wales and Northern Ireland. And regardless of the opportunity to drive fast, pay to slow down and enjoy unbelievable scenery as well as local hospitality.
"Food and drink are excellent, almost everywhere on the island," said Sutcliffe. "You can go there because of driving enthusiasts on one of Europe's most popular roads, but it's people, food and scenery that make your sadness easier to get on a ferry."
This is the ninth film in the series, which included everything from the supercar Ford GT through the beautiful Atlantic Ocean road in Norway to the Fiesta ST on practically empty Via Campocatino in Italy. Rated on factors, including excitement factor, food, and road surface, Mountain Road has reached the highest score of the series.
Celebrating the 50th anniversary of Warner Bros.'s legendary film, the new special edition Ford Mustang Bullitt is available on demand throughout Europe powered by an upgraded version of the 5.0-liter V8 Ford engine with a power of 460 hp and a torque of 529 Nm.
