The performance prowess of the new Ford Fiesta ST is demonstrated by a new film that features an amazing driving location - 400m below ground in one of Europe's largest salt mines.

Shot at a secret location with World Rally Championship driver Elfyn Evans at the wheel, the Fiesta ST is seen slipping, sliding and jumping in the dirt. The sound of the 197bhp 1.5-litre EcoBoost engine is amplified by its surroundings as it tackles a high-speed drop through the narrow entrance tunnel.

Ford's 'Europe's Greatest Driving Roads' series has put a range of Ford performance vehicles - including the Ford GT, the Ford Focus RS and the Ford Mustang Convertible in some of the most stunning environments across the continent - from the Arctic Circle in Norway, to the sunny climes of Mallorca. So far, all the locations have been above ground.

Ford chose the secret salt mine location for new TV advert 'Undertrack' that sees the car put through its paces within the mine's 60km network of tunnels, where temperatures are a constant 16 degrees and safety precautions required that a skeleton crew was used for the three-day shoot amid strict safety precautions.
