It's not everyday that a hip hop artist and actress like Queen Latifah climbs into the cockpit to hit the track for some high-speed driving lessons, but with Ford's marketing department eager to boost sales of the 2010 Mustang in the face of competition from the very hot 2010 Chevrolet Camaro, the game has just stepped up a notch.

Heavy on hype and low on content, this first episode focuses largely on Latifah's enthusiasm for the Mustang itself, though there is some on-track time with coach and young NASCAR Truck Series driver Colin Braun.

The ostensible reason behind the video shoot was prep for Latifah's inclusion of a new Mustang in the extended cut of her music video for the song 'Fast Cars'. Whatever the occasion, however, it's always fun to hear an American V8 singing like it was meant to, and despite hitting some decent slip angles, the 2010 'Stang looks pretty composed on the track.

Check out the video below to see for yourself.

  1. Gentilini Ford of Cape May New Jersey donated use of the black 2010 Ford Mustang GT used in this video. Queen Latifah's and her entire organization was courteous, classy, and professional before, during, and after the taping. We are big fans and wish her all the success in her already impressive career! She certainly deserves it!
