2015 Ford Mustang GT 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.
