The structure, called OVER, stretches upwards for 47 meters, which corresponds to about a sixteen-story building, and untold beauty opens from the top.

The goal of the “Explore New Heights” competition was to climb the route as quickly as possible to the top, where the plug-in hybrid Ford Explorer was waiting. The winner received a free two-year car subscription, and each entrant (including visitors) received a commemorative T-shirt.

Ford wanted only the most experienced climbers to participate in the qualifying round, and of the six finalists, 21-year-old Leo Ketil Bee won with a time of 3:33 minutes. He not only received a two-year lease, but also a 1 / 100th scale replica of the tower.

It took the team about six months to plan the route and implement it. That said, engineers had to test the structure on top to make sure it could support the extra weight.

Ford Explorer will stay on the tower until August 27th. Recall that in Europe, the model is offered only with a hybrid setup with a 350-horsepower 3-liter EcoBoost V6 and an additional 100 hp electric motor. The total power is 450 HP
