  • 2018 Ford Mustang EcoBoost line-lock burnout

    Ford is making it easier than ever to perform a well-executed burnout because who doesn't like the smell of tire smoke in the morning? The Blue Oval has announced a line-lock will be a standard feature on the 2018 Ford Mustang with the 4-cylinder EcoBoost engine. The line-lock system—previously a Mustang GT exclusive feature—works by building pressure in the front brake calipers, which, in turn, locks the front wheels. Then, for 15 seconds, the driver can mash the throttle and spin the rear wheels without the Mustang skidding away. Even the most amateur of drivers can hop in and...

    Shelby American has finally presented us with its first take on a wide-body version of the sixth-generation Ford Mustang.

Given the popularity of previous wide-body Shelbys, that’s certainly no surprise. There's also the little matter of the wide-body Dodge Challenger SRT Demon to deal with. The design of the concept, officially the Ford Shelby Super Snake Wide Body, is pure sex. There’s approximately 4.0 inches added to the rear track and 2.5...

  • 2017 Ford Mustang GT during filming of 'C’etait un Rendez-Vous’ remake

    Any car enthusiast knows the story of “Rendezvous,” the video of a highly illegal drive through the streets of Paris, supposedly, in a Ferrari 275 GTB.

Ford recently teamed up with Lelouch to recreate the famous scene, using a Mustang GT. But as a twist, the video was filmed with a 360-degree camera, allowing us to take in all the sights of modern Paris in the wee hours. That’s not the only twist, though. This time a...
