Standard Electronic Line-Lock Allows Any 2018 Mustang Owner to Destroy Their Tires (But Look Cool Doing It)

In a recent upload to Ford's YouTube channel, Formula Drift Champion Vaughn Gittin Jr. takes random pedestrians to the track for a joy ride, to show just how fun and easy it is to do a burnout with the 2018 Ford Mustang.

The all-new Mustang, which will arrive in San Bernadino dealerships sometime this fall, has electronic line-lock standard on all model levels, including the EcoBoost variant. Line-lock is typically only offered on the beefiest V8 drag racing cars, where it's used by motorsport athletes to quickly smoke their tires before a race. With this feature, a driver of any skill level can produce a glorious plume by spinning out their rear wheels.

As Vaughn Gittin Jr. says, "Burnouts just never get old, no matter how old you are and how many times you’ve done them." Every driver he brought to the track came away with a big smile on their face.

At Fairview Ford Sales, we do feel we'd be remiss not to caution anyone who plans on buying the 2018 Mustang that burnouts strip rubber from your tire tread. You may need to resist the temptation to burn up your driveway every morning if you want to avoid frequent trips to our tire store.
