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.

Incoming Ford CEO Mark Fields Unveils New 2015 Ford Edge
Following last week’s official release of the 2015 Mustang’s specs, Ford has unveiled how much kick we can expect out of the all-new F-150. But there’s a catch — the automaker just released figures of the new 2.7-litre EcoBoost V6 engine, as well as the base 3.5-litre V6. First and foremost, the turbocharged 2.7-litre mill pumps out 325 horsepower and 375 lb.-ft. of torque, while maximum towing — based on the new SAE J2807 standards — is rated at 8,500 lb ...

Incoming Ford CEO Mark Fields Unveils New 2015 Ford Edge
Let’s get this disclaimer out of the way: Without knowing the 2015 Ford Mustang’s full technical specs, pegging the car’s acceleration is nothing more than an educated guess. There are many variables yet unaccounted for, including its all-new architecture, additional standard features, and the new turbocharged four-cylinder EcoBoost engine option. But Ford has finally released the outputs for each of the Mustang’s three available engines—and the curb weights of the cars so e ...
