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.

Filed under: Coupe, Performance, Videos, Ford Aside from the way it looks and perhaps its independent rear suspension, the biggest bit of news on the 2015 Mustang may be the inclusion of its 2.3-liter, turbocharged four-cylinder engine. That blown mill marks the first time since the Mustang SVO of the '80s that a turbo has been fitted under the engine of Ford's pony car. The Mustang EcoBoost is the subject of the latest episode of Ignition from Motor ...

Video: 2015 BMW M3 Runs the Quarter Mile in Under 12 Seconds

Oct 13 2014 2:00pm CDT | Source: Top Speed

The new BMW M3 has been around for almost a year now, roaming mostly undisturbed in its segment, with the Mercedes-AMG C63 not yet available in showrooms as of October 2014. We’ve seen the M3 hooned by Chris Harris, driven on the spectacular Spa-Francorchamps track, and on the set of "Mission: Impossible 5." We know it’s capable of sub-four second 0-to-60-mph sprints and that sometimes it acts like a sports car, although ...

2016 Chevrolet Camaro Spied On Video, Sounds Small-Blocky and Awesome

Oct 8 2014 4:03pm CDT | Source: Car and Driver

Those photos gave us a detailed look at some of the Camaro’s styling changes that we hadn’t seen before, and they followed on the hells of aerial shots we used to determine the car’s basic size. But while pictures may be worth a thousand words, videos are worth many more. We now have footage of the car tearing up the Nürbur ...
