2015 Ford Mustang GT Laps Silverstone: 360-Degree Video


You don't have to be Nostradamus to foresee that 360-degree video is about to explode.

Prices for cameras have dropped into the $500 range, so YouTube will soon be flooded with amateur and not-so-amateur videos on any variety of subjects. And while the viewing experience feels slightly gimmicky—if not downright tedious—on a desktop, the immersive quality the treatment brings via mobile is stunning.

CHECK OUT: 5,000-HP, 348-MPH Devel Sixteen Spotted In The Wild: Video

The latest video we've seen exploiting the trick technology was shot to celebrate the Mustang's official return to English shores. Because while the Ford Motor Company [NYSE:F] has a huge presence in the U.K., it's been half a century since its prodigal pony car was available in showrooms there. So we can consider this clip of a 2015 Mustang GT lapping the storied Silverstone Circuit kind of an official coming out party.

And it's just the ticket if you've always wanted to have a look around the legendary British race track.

We might have been happier with it if Ford had selected a 2016 Mustang Shelby GT350R to do the lap, like it did at the recent Goodwood Festival of Speed, but as far as we know, the weapons-grade track toy will remain forbidden fruit in jolly old England. Enjoy.
