Traction-limited first drive in the 2011 Mustang GT 5.0

by DrivingEnthusiast

Ford supplied the first video of the 2011 Mustang GT 5.0 in action. Cold Michigan weather obviously limits traction. What’s unique about this video is that it shows the Track Pack for the first time: including the Brembo fr4ont brakes, strut-tower brace, and wheels/tires.

The Coyote engine sounds… ok. The traction was obviously limiting here… it would have been better if Ford had filmed this at their Phoenix test track, where we could hear the engine bounce up against it’s rev limiter, or hear the speed limiter get hit at maximum speed in 6th gear.
