Up until now, if you’ve wanted to smoke your Ford Mustang’s rear tires without roasting your rear brakes, your best bet has been the V8 GT. But now for 2018, Ford is making the Line Lock (“Burnout Mode”) feature standard across the Mustang range. Which is kind of absurd, if you think about it. But in a good way.
Not all the Mustang news this week came out of New York. At the Mustang 50 celebration in Charlotte tonight, chief engineer Dave Pericak announced that when the 2015 Mustang GT arrives this fall, it'll have electronic line lock standard as part of the track apps suite.
