2015 Ford Mustang GT burnout

Ford's new pony car passes the first muscle car test

Ford Mustang burnout

This might come as no surprise to many of you, but the new Ford Mustang GT does a wicked burnout.

It's not big, it's not clever, but you can't help but smile when Ford's new pony car uses its 303kW/525Nm 5.0-litre V8 to turn tyres to atoms.

It's a process made all the easier by the standard-fit 'line locker' function, which allows the rear tyres to turn freely while the fronts remain stationary. 

Thanks to David Roscio and the crew from Adelaide-based outfit Streetfighter, we've had exclusive early access to the new Mustang, which you'll read about in our next issue.
