Rumor Says 2015 Mustang Will Have Burnout Control

Feature claims to make it easy to lay down a smoky burnout

We all know what traction control and launch control are. Launch control helps minimize wheel spin so you get the fastest launch possible. Ford has unveiled many of the features and specs of the 2015 Mustang, but it is keeping some of the features under wraps for now.

A rumor is circulating reports MotorAuthority that the 2015 Mustang might have a feature that is the opposite of launch control. According to the rumor, the Mustang will have an automated burnout function to help drivers achieve the ultimate burnout.

The feature could lock the front brakes and direct the driver to rev the engine to a certain RPM before letting out the clutch. Ford hasn’t confirmed this feature, but it would definitely be cool if it is true.

717-hp Hennessey HPE700 Mustang Is Out for Hellcat Blood

Oct 1 2014 5:49pm CDT | Source: Car and Driver

Just a week after Saleen released information and images of its upcoming Mustang-based S302 mega pony car, Hennessey Performance has dropped into our laps renderings and information on its sinister HPE700 Mustang. (Coincidence? We think not.) And as usual with a Hennessey product, it is absolutely drunk on power. How much power? Thanks to a Roots supercharger—Hennessey’s anabolic steroid of choice—as well as up ...

Everyone on the web is pitching the new Hennessey Mustang against the Dodge Challenger SRT Hellcat, perhaps because they have no other frame of reference. Fortunately, we can see beyond the horsepower to the potential for other aspects of the Mustang’s performance. Of course, that horsepower is n ...

The news that the sixth-generation Mustang no longer features a live rear axle came like a blow to the head for most drag-racing enthusiasts. That’s not to say we won’t be seeing the 2015 Mustang perform at the drag strip, but it’s now up to racing specialists and the drivers themselves to equip their muscle cars with a proper rear axle.As the redesigned Mustang is getting closer to its on sale date, ...

Suck It, Mustang: 2016 Chevrolet Camaro Loses More Camo, Comes Into Clearer Focus

Sep 29 2014 4:16pm CDT | Source: Car and Driver

A lighter and tighter Chevrolet Camaro this way comes. The last time we checked in on Chevy’s pony car was a few months ago, when we were published aerial spy photographs of the car being evaluated at General Motors’ proving grounds. That prototype was well-camouflaged, but its general shape gave it away as the 2016 Camaro. The car pictured here is clearly a Camaro, and its details are now on clearer display—and from a more normal vantage point. Now that ...
