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.

Continuing the recall parade that’s marked this automotive year—including dozens of GM recalls, the Takata airbag fiasco, and many more—Ford has issued an action for the brand-spankin’-new 2015 Mustang.
